Victoria began her musical journey at the age of 8 studying both flute and piano. By age 14 she had achieved grade 8 on the flute. Victoria is an accomplished musician having held the position of Bristol City Wait and became the official minstrel for the Mayor of Bristol for a year. During this time she performed in the Colston Hall, St George’s and the Lord Mayor’s Chapel. By age 15 she had gained a place in Bristol Pre-Conservatoire and a seat in the Bristol School’s Philharmonia Orchestra, where she progressed to principal flute within a year. Victoria has also previously been invited to play with the Orchestra of the Swan.
Currently studying performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, she has learnt under Susan Milan, Fiona Kelly, Eliza Marshall and Christopher Green. As part of her BMus course, she has been specialising in music teaching for the past 2 years. Within Trinity, Victoria has set up numerous ensembles; including FlautingIt, the Wren Trio, Lumos Duo and a Flute and Harp Duo. She is also currently part of the Cinematic Syncopations Orchestra.
Victoria is also very active in the music community, running various projects across London and helping to transition many of these into exciting online courses. Her most notable project is the MusicOnWheels Brent project, taking place from November 2019 to August 2020. This was a 3 term project teaching music to children in disadvantaged communities on a specially renovated double decker bus. As part of MusicOnWheels, Victoria has also helped create several 8-week online courses for children across London.
Most recently, she has helped with the running of Animate Online alongside her studies at Trinity Laban. More information can be found out about this on the projects page.
