|Lorraine studied recorder and flute at the Royal Academy of Music in London, before going on to post-graduate performance studies in Holland, at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague and the Sweelinck Conservatory, Amsterdam.
For a number of years, Lorraine performed across the UK with recorder and piano duo Allegrezza, including in community settings such as schools, hospices and care homes, for the Yehudi Menuhin Live Music Now! scheme and The Council for Music in Hospitals.
Alongside her professional playing, and for nearly twenty years, Lorraine worked extensively in primary, secondary and adult music education, as an instrumental teacher, ensemble coach, conductor, secondary school class music teacher, and as a workshop leader with the London based charities Musiko Musika and The Trust.
During this time, Lorraine released an album of songs she wrote – Hope in You – sung and played by Noel Robinson and other members of the Kingdom Worship Movement, with Lorraine featuring on flute.
Following a period of years volunteering with an international Christian charity in an arts based role, Lorraine has recently returned part-time to teaching in secondary music education, along with instrumental teaching.
Lorraine has a deep interest in using music and the arts in a healing capacity, and to this end has done some basic training in arts and trauma healing at Dallas International University, which she has used in leading group sessions around processing grief. She also has a heart for creating a healing space through playing her instruments.
Lorraine loves music of many cultures, arts and is highly creative.
