Hi, I’m Rachel. I play the flute, piano and percussion. I like to hunt out the most weird and wonderful instruments – my nose flute is my current favourite!
After graduating in Spanish and Music, I did a Masters in Music Leadership and headed off to Brazil for a year to learn Brazilian music and lead community music projects. I now perform in many different bands, from Brazilian band Alvorada to foot-stomping British folk music.
I love how music connects us all, regardless of culture and language. I facilitate music-making in many different settings – community music groups, music in special needs schools and care homes, band/ orchestra leading, and workshops in Brazilian music. I also love to work with theatre, and recently composed the music for a childrens’ puppet show inspired by the Amazon jungle!
