I have been playing the keyboard in the orchestra since it was formed in 2008. I started learning piano at the age of 3 and worked my way up to Grade 8 Associate Board Level in Exams. I studied music at Glasgow University along with History and Politics and then did a postgraduate certificate in Primary Teaching.
I now job share in Cardonald Primary School , teach music with East Dunbartonshire Council and also run my own music school, the Diane Mitchell Music School. I love music of all kinds including accordion music, which i have been involved with since my daughter started learning at the age of 6 years.
Being involved in the the orchestra is one of the hobbies , which I enjoy in the little spare time I have. I am also involved in the Rotary Club of Paisley and love to organise charity events. My one wish is to eventually have the time to learn to play the accordion
