Jill enjoys a highly successful career as soloist, chamber musician and teacher. Her performances have taken her throughout Britain and across Europe and have received critical acclaim. Since making her professional debut, she has performed in all the major concert halls throughout Britain and has been heard on BBC Radio 2’s Friday Night is Music Night as soloist with the BBC Concert Orchestra.

Jill studied with Joan Havill at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and was awarded the prestigious Concert Recital Diploma (Premier Prix) in her final year. Following her studies, she was delighted to take up the position for a season as Pianist in Residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Alberta, Canada where she performed regularly as soloist and as collaborator with internationally renowned musicians.

She was inspired to set up “Encore! Concerts for all, big and small” after becoming a Mummy. This monthly concert series provides an opportunity for preschool children and their carers to experience the thrill of live music in a relaxed and informal environment. The series celebrated its 5th birthday in September 2018.

Jill has given masterclasses at universities and specialist music schools throughout Britain and she is becoming recognised as a competition adjudicator. Jill also teaches at the Perse School in Cambridge.
