Emma Alexandra - clarinet soloist and teacher, London, Hampshire, Belgium, Italy.

Emma has performed extensively both at home and abroad, and made sell out appearances as recitalist and concerto soloist. She has toured to packed houses all over England as soloist with the English Mozart Ensemble with whom she released a recording of Mozart's famous Clarinet Quintet and concerto Adagio. The press have recognised the beauty of her tone in many rave reviews.

At the Royal College of Music she won a scholarship to study at the Aspen Music Festival and later furthered her studies with Thea King and Gervase de Peyer. Graduating from R.C.M, she went on to study with Jack Brymer specializing in the music of Mozart.

Whilst staying true to her classical heritage, Emma remains focused on the tone colours of an instrument that Mozart considered ''closest to the human voice''. She has also embraced the versatility of the clarinet by exploring a broad palette of sound from Klezmer to Jazz leading to invitations as guest soloist with several ensembles and duos overseas.

Emma has taught at Kingston University London and she is currently clarinet tutor at Chichester University. Her students have been recipients of numerous scholarships and some are now professional clarinettists.
