We’ve got some more inspirational live music for you as part of our LTPD celebrations this Saturday 24th June. At 2.30pm we will hear some wonderful flute duets from two talented flautists Victoria Dawkes and Suzanne Poulter. Here’s a little bit more about them both:
Victoria Dawkes started playing Flute from an early age, winning numerous awards and competitions during her musical education, including being granted a county music scholarship and gaining first place in many music competitions. She studied under Helen Duffy and at the age of 17 gained distinction grade in the prestigious Associated Board Diploma.
A performer from an early age, Victoria has played in numerous and varied venues including Worcester College, Oxford, The Royal Albert Hall, NEC Birmingham, London Olympia and busking in Windsor High Street!
Victoria established her first teaching practice at the age of 14 and now runs a thriving teaching practice both at home and at Dawkes Music, where she established ‘My Music‘ which specialises in teaching mature students. She is passionate about teaching and regularly receives accolades from her students for her enthusiasm, dedication and for passing onto others her love of music.
Since 1991, Suzanne has taught as a peripatetic flute teacher and band leader at many educational institutions throughout Sussex, Surrey and Buckinghamshire. She is a founder member of her own flute quartet ‘Aeona Flutes’ and enjoyed success appearing at festivals, open days and a residency at the Hilton Hotel Gatwick for prolonged periods.
