I come from a fairly musical family – my Dad played the cello, and my sisters played violin and piano. I myself played piano and guitar when I was younger.  I started playing the accordion in 2008, as it combines the skill of playing a keyboard (with the right hand) and chords (with the left).  I had no idea how much I would love it!  I joined the No 1 Ladies in 2011, which gave me the opportunity to meet other like-minded people from all over the country, and play a wide range of music. I love the challenge of learning new pieces, and am very excited about the future of the orchestra. I live in Nottingham, and have three grown up children.
