LEADER / CONCERTMASTER

Lynne Rothwell

Lynne started her musical journey at the age of 5 years learning the piano. Her early orchestral experience was as a member of the Grimsby Youth Orchestra where she played French horn and violin. Opportunities arose to lead both the horn section in a concert band and an orchestra, as well as leading one of the orchestras on the violin.

While studying for a Music degree, at the Cambridgeshire College of Arts and Technology, Lynne was a member of the Cambridge University 1st Orchestra having the opportunity to perform at Kings College Cambridge as well as the Albert Hall. In her first year, she was also appointed as principal horn player for the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain for a year, as well as playing a Mozart piano concerto with the college orchestra.

Between 1994 and 1997, Lynne taught class music to 11 years olds up to A level, after achieving her Post-graduate Certificate in Education at Leeds University. From 1998, she moved down to teaching primary school children and wrote a few Christmas productions which were performed in London and Berkshire.

Moving south in 1996, Lynne joined the Henley Symphony Orchestra where she played 1st violin, as well as leading the 2nds for some concerts. She continued to develop her accompanying skills, having the opportunity to accompany more advanced students on a range of instruments. Over the years she has played both violin and piano in a number of chamber ensembles. She continues to tutor piano, having taken a number of pupils up to Grade 8 ABRSM.
