About me

Creativity is my life-blood. My passions are choral music and writing, and if I can combine the two, so much the better. With a piano in the kitchen, it’s not unknown for me to combine a bit of practice with cooking meals for my schoolteacher husband and two teenage children. Maybe an aga-saga will be next, following recent publication of my memoir. I have an appetite for tasty metaphors and I’m a stickler for correct spelling and grammar – so if you find an erroneous apostrophe in my work, please let me know!

Do you know of any other way I could order successfully, short of imposing on an English relative to receive and re-ship? (more) and earned+3

Thanks for a fa...Hi Katherine, I've just finished reading your book A Year of Living Musically. Thanks for a fascinating read. The descriptions of musical terminology was impressive and I enjoyed hearing about your busy year with the choir. Also, the reference to melismatic towards the end of the book was wonderful; I enjoy the melismatic in music. In fact, it's possible for a piano player to give the impression of playing melisma in Bach fugues! From very early on, I was impressed at the professional approach you took to the choir's activities, along with your Music Theory Grade Examination and your piano playing, and what you wrotecertainly made me value my own training in these subjects. Excellent account. Best wishes, Lawrence (more) and gained+3
