I am raising funds to tour all 6 states of Australia, presenting concerts playing original music for solo piano from my new album AKASHA.
I will also be visiting schools to give concerts and workshops to students throughout the tour.
I am very excited to present concerts playing music I have written and sharing the stories behind the music, especially to younger students of music, and in particular young pianists. I would like to encourage young people to write music and share their compositions on a public platform.
I will have special guests at most of these performances sharing the stage with me playing music I have composed.
As an Australian pianist and composer, I am keen to promote new Australian music particularly that of female composers and to inspire more young people to write and perform their own original music.
The music I write is highly listenable and melodic, some of it is virtuosic but mostly it is intended to celebrate the beauty and exquisite sound of the notes and the silence around the sounds of the modern day grand piano.
Donations will be used to fund the hiring of venues, travel costs and extensive admin costs to organise a tour of up to 30 dates throughout Australia over the course of 2017.

I look forward to sharing the music I have written with the people of Australia, and hopefully bringing smiles to faces everywhere as I share my music and stories with them!
