I am looking for help with funding the final year of my masters degree at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. I am a cellist from Thornbury, near Bristol, and have been privileged to study at GSMD since 2012. Since coming here I have grown as a musician and learned so much from colleagues and staff and would benefit immeasurably from completing the course and continuing to pursue the opportunities in chamber music and orchestral playing with fellow, like-minded young musicians that being in an institution such as GSMD provides. I have already been awarded a scholarship towards my tuition fees, so am looking to raise more to cover the rest and to support living expenses to allow me to concentrate fully on my studies.
Highlights of my time at Guildhall have included a performance alongside the LSO conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, numerous high quality GSMD Symphony Orchestra concerts tackling great repertoire, public masterclasses with internationally renowned cellists and chamber music coaching with resident and visiting artists. Below are some photos of what I've been involved in!
