She has been a finalist in the Proctor-Gregg competition at the University, and in the John Ireland Prize at the RNCM. Her chamber group, the Tudor Jones Trio, were finalists in the Weill Prize and Emily has recently performed as part of a piano duo with Lucy Colquhoun in the RNCM Ravel Festival. She has played in master classes with Norma Fischer, Nelson Goerner and Bernard Roberts. She was granted an Entrance Award by the college to continue her studies on the MMus course. A former pupil of John Gough, she now studies with Jeremy Young.
