As a respected soloist and chamber musician, Helen has performed at some of the UK’s most prestigious concert venues, including the Royal Opera House, Wigmore Hall, St Martin-in-the- Fields and Bridgewater Hall. Her award-winning performance of Gaspard de la nuit was described as ‘technically flawless’ and ‘wonderfully descriptive’. Her solo album – The Debut – features this iconic work by Ravel, plus music by Beethoven, Scarlatti, Chopin and Debussy. Helen has also recorded many works by the late composer, Nikolai Kapustin, and was fortunate enough to have premiered several of his new works.

As an alumnus of the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at the Royal Opera House, she joined The Royal Ballet music staff on many productions, including The Nutcracker, Onegin, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and the premiere of Wayne McGregor’s Raven Girl. She has also appeared as a soloist with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and has performed numerous recitals in the Crush Room and Paul Hamlyn Hall.

Helen is a regular accompanist at the Royal Academy of Music, Royal College of Music and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, primarily working within the woodwind faculty. She also accompanies graded music exams and competitions across London and the UK, working with all levels from beginner to professional. As an orchestral musician, she has performed with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and collaborates with some of the orchestra’s principals for recitals and masterclasses. Helen enjoys being the resident pianist for the Metropolitan Police Choir, who have performed at Southwark Cathedral and Westminster Abbey, as well as making an appearance on ITV’s ‘Good Morning Britain’. In 2023 the choir recorded their first Christmas album at Abbey Road Studios.

Originally from Poole in Dorset, Helen began her professional studies at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, graduating with a First Class Honours Degree in 2011 and then achieving a Distinction for her Masters at the Royal Academy of Music in 2012. She had the privilege of studying with the late Yonty Solomon, Hilary Coates and Carole Presland.
