Emma Smith (Keyboard/Piano)

I started learning violin and piano as a child, and really loved playing in the youth orchestras  in my home city of Birmingham, especially playing at the Albert Hall for Music For Youth!

I moved to Sheffield in 1996 in order to complete my degree in Music. I started playing keyboard and violin in local rock and folk bands and also discovered Percussion through an African drumming workshop. I started performing regularly, also leading drumming workshops for community and corporate events. 

In 2008 I completed a Music PGCE at Huddersfield University and have taught classroom Music in schools. 

I am passionate about all kinds of music-making!

  • Favourite song/piece of music - Black Gold Of the Sun

  • One thing about me that would surprise you to know - This summer, I've really enjoyed growing cucumbers
