As a musician, performer and teacher, Rachel has a wide range of musical experience including jazz, folk, classical, experimental and electronic music.

She now teaches flute at Dartington College of Arts, has a private teaching practice and runs various teaching courses including courses in improvisation. She is also a trained music therapist and worked for many years in the health and education services in Devon.

In 2009 she formed the Experimental Flute Ensemble which explores new possibilities in sound, with a strong focus on improvisation and working with composers to develop new repertoire. For more information see

As a narrator and musician she has toured extensively with one of the UKs foremost puppet theatre companies, PuppetCraft.

In her solo work she has developed a unique way of combining modern sound technology with poetic storytelling. She is a multi-instrumentalist and plays a wide variety of instruments live on stage which she samples live and builds up evocative textures of sound and music that conjure the images of the tale.

She believes strongly in the importance and relevance of contemporary music in the cultural life of communities especially in the times of transition that we are in.
