About Me

Emily lives in Thirsk, North Yorkshire and works across North Yorkshire.

Emily studied Music at The University of Huddersfield, where she was Principal Oboe of the University Orchestra and Symphonic Wind Orchestra for 3 years as well as playing with the New Music Ensemble, in a production of Purcell's The Fairy Queen and performing Bellini's Oboe Concerto with the Wind Orchestra.

She joined the Slaithwaite Philharmonic Orchestra in 2014 where she plays oboe/cor anglais. Tours with the orchestra include two New Year tours of China, two tours in France and the Isle of Man. Memorable performances with SPO include Sweeney ToddThe Flying Dutchman, Tosca and Mahler's Symphony No.2.

Emily is co-founder of De Mowbray Music, based in Thirsk, which is a music venture set up in 2020 with musical director Benjamin Ellin to bring more more musical opportunities, including both community and professional music, to Thirsk. De Mowbray Music teamed up with Thirsk Hall Events to put on the first Thirsk Hall Festival in September 2021, for which Emily is Events Manager. 

Having completed a PGCE in Secondary Music at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2017, Emily has worked as a high school classroom music teacher at Darwen Aldridge Community Academy, Ripon Grammar School and Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate. 

Flute is her primary instrument (Grade 8 distinction) and oboe is her secondary instrument (Grade 8 merit).

Teaching the Eduqas Music GCSE and A-Level spec at all three schools has given her a great insight into the completion and marking of performance and composition coursework, so she is happy to help with those aspects, as well as general exam prep.
