Chloe’s Music Story
Chloe started her musical career learning the recorder at school and she can remember driving her family mad by practicing at every opportunity! It was not until she was 10 that she started group lessons on the flute at school and then by Year 7 had transitioned to individual lessons through the music service gifted and talented scheme. Playing at the local music centre gave Chloë some great experience, as well as playing in the Oxfordshire County Youth Orchestra.
She says she was lucky to have a great flute teacher at her school which was provided by the local music service; a lady called Janet Way. Janet encouraged her to apply to the junior department of the Guildhall for sixth form where she was taught on a Saturday by Sarah Newbold and this led to Chloe choosing to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama for her undergraduate studies. Chloë pursued further study at the Malmö Academy of Music in Sweden where she studied the prestigious soloist diploma which culminated in a performance of Mozart’s flute concerto with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra.
She has since performed with a variety of orchestras including the Royal Northern Sinfonia, Malmö Opera and the BBC Symphony Orchestra and has been awarded trials with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the Welsh National Opera which included tours to Japan, China, and Europe.
In addition to her classical performances, Chloë regularly records at major London studios and has worked for artists such as Madonna, Kanye West, Little Simz and Michael Kiwanuka. She has performed at the BRIT awards with Billie Eilish and performed with the The Who at Wembley Stadium.
Around her performing schedule, Chloë is a passionate teacher and has a variety of students of different levels
