Zoe is currently studying at the Royal College of Music under the tutelage of Gary Ryan and Chris Stell. She has participated in many masterclasses with prolific guitarists including Judicael Perroy, Zoran Dukic and Gaelle Solal. In 2017 she took part in the ensemble playing Cuban Landscape with Rain in the ‘Homage to Leo Brouwer’ concert in Bolivar Hall conducted by Brouwer himself. Zoe has participated in many competitions in the UK. After winning the Recital Prize in 2016 at the Portsmouth Festival, she gave her solo debut at The Rotunda, Portsmouth aged 17. The following year, Zoe won the West Sussex Youth Music Awards and had successes in Chichester and Brighton Springboard Music Festivals.
