Initially she freelanced as an orchestral musician but now devotes most of her energies to chamber music and solo repertoire.

She has performed most of the standard repertoire for violin and piano with her regular duo partner Anna Le Hair. 

Anna teaches piano and accompanies at St Albans School, and also has a thriving private teaching practice at her home in Tring.
