Pianist work (Dance)
"Frances is so much more than just a great pianist and musician. She has the rare ability to fluently transcribe specific themed dance instructions direct through her fingers to the keyboard and create movement inspiring music."
David Pickering MBE - Education Administrator, Royal Ballet
"I absolutely love working with Frances. Her skill lies in being able to interpret my ideas instantly and perfectly, transforming them into musical form in a way that totally supports what it is I'm trying to achieve with my students. Her playing is truly inspirational, enabling dancers to free up their creativity, expression and musicality, and she has the ability to improvise and adapt to their needs, creating perfect harmony between musician and dancer."
Annie Dunkley - Dance Practitioner, Royal Opera House
"Frances is not only a brilliant pianist, with an ability to instinctively know how to respond to the ideas given to her, she is also the perfect team player. She is at home sitting with the children and supporting them in activities as she is sitting at the piano. Her willingness to fully engage with all aspects of the children's learning makes her invaluable to our weekly classes."
Dani Batchelor - Dance Practitioner, Royal Opera House
"I just wanted to write to congratulate you on a beautiful 'Into the Woods' production this past week. The beautiful piano, cello and percussion accompaniment was so finely balanced with our children's voices. I was overwhelmed by so much beauty and fine musical sensitivity in what must be one of the most complex musical productions."
Lesley-Anne Hill - Director of Music, Saint Ronan's School
"Wow – that was terrific! Tricky stuff to do, but you guys pulled it off brilliantly – very impressive! Huge congrats to you and all your team for a fab show!"
David Force - Director of Music, Saint Ronan's School
