Alongside performing, Ellen lectured at Royal College of Music, and worked in communications for a music research non-profit. She completed her PhD in April 2022, which focussed on classical piano music written in Fascist Italy. During this, she worked in Italy and America at various research institutes and has been awarded for her research.
Outside of Nous, music research has been a huge part of Ellen’s life. She has delivered conference papers and journal articles on various topics outside of her PhD, which was undertaken at the Royal College of Music. She also holds a Master of Music from Goldsmiths at the University of London, Bachelors of Music (Honours) and Arts (Honours) from the Australian National University.
Alongside doing research, Ellen has worked for the Royal Musical Association for the past three years, promoting and strengthening the music research community in the UK. She has also run her my own teaching business since 2012, developing a music teaching method that is accessible for all students of all ages and backgrounds.
Ellen loves experimenting with baking – especially sourdough – and cooking elaborate dinners for friends. She also enjoys cycling, hiking and swimming. Most of all, she is a voracious reader.
