Angela says: "My first love is classical music, opera as well as art song and oratorio. As a pianist I accompany my students in their grade exams and concerts and acheived Grade 8 whilst at College. I love to sing and play, accompanying myself across a range of genres. In addition to teaching I perform (in normal times!) both classical and lighter music as part of various classical and jazz ensembles and also often take part in staged operatic productions, having performed regularly across the UK both on the stage and as an invited soloist for choirs, and with the Engelfield Ensemble which combines voice with clarinet and piano. I also sing American Songbook repertoire as part of a guitar and vocal duo and love to teach musical theatre as an accesible middle ground. I examine for MTB Exams and accompany the Chapel Choir at St Piran's; so lots of variety and ability to feed performance and general musical experience into lessons as a teacher. "
