Studies

In 2014, Amy graduated with Distinction from her Masters at the Royal College of Music (RCM), London, having gained her Bachelor of Music with First Class Honours there two years earlier.

Amy was delighted to be awarded the prestigious Tagore Gold Medal and in 2014 was the first saxophonist ever to win the Edward and Helen Hague Senior Woodwind Prize at the Royal College of Music. Amy performed for HRH Prince Charles in 2015 at the RCM’s President’s Visit when she was presented the Tagore Gold Medal.

In Paris, an Erasmus exchange enabled Amy to study with Claude Delangle at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris. During her studies at the RCM, Amy studied with both Kyle Horch and Martin Robertson.

Amy is also a talented clarinet and flute player, studying clarinet as second study during her time at the RCM.

Appearances

Amy was selected to play in the Rising Stars concert series at Cadogan Hall, London, for four successive years. Amy also successfully auditioned for the London Sinfonietta Academy in 2011 and won the Melber Saxophone Competition in 2012. She has appeared in the BBC Proms with the London Sinfonietta and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as a soloist in the BBC Proms Plus series broadcast on BBC Radio 3. In 2015 Amy launched the co-founded project ‘Over 100 Years of Women and the Saxophone’ at the World Saxophone Congress in Strasbourg, a celebration of the women who were integral in developing and pioneering the instrument and its repertoire throughout the saxophone’s history. Since then, the project has been featured as part of the RCM’s 2016 International Women’s Day celebrations including on BBC Radio 3. Amy has recently performed concertos with Sheffield Symphony Orchestra, the Northamptonshire County Youth Orchestra and Essex Symphony Orchestra. She enjoyed giving her St John’s Smith Square debut in 2016 as a Park Lane Group Artist.

Amy is the soprano saxophonist in the Laefer Quartet (Park Lane Group Artists) and performs with the collaborative ensemble ANIMA who explore projects bringing together contemporary composers, musicians and animators in live performances with abstract animated films. Amy enjoys performing with a variety of musicians and relishes the challenges of different styles, genres and collaborations. Whilst at the RCM she formed the Echo Trio combining saxophone, violin and piano.
