About Caroline Swinburne M Mus, MA (music therapy), ATCL, dipABRSM


After studying music to Masters level at university, I worked for many years as a producer and reporter in radio broadcasting, making features for BBC Radio 3, 4 and World Service as well as Classic FM. In my forties I retrained as a music therapist and piano teacher. I currently study piano with Claudia Schurr; I have also been a pupil of Heli Ignatius-Fleet, and taken occasional lessons with teachers including Graham Fitch, Philip Fowke and Jeremy Young. I am a keen member of both the London and the Cambridge Piano Groups, and also attend the Chetham’s piano summer school. I also play French Horn in a number of orchestras and chamber groups.
