Georgia began playing the violin from the age of six and quickly progressed to becoming one of the top players in her home county of Lincolnshire. 
In 2008, she gained a place at Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester, and whilst there took up many opportunities, including ensemble tours to Trinidad and Ischia. Her passion for orchestral music really grew through her membership of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain (2009-2011) and she has since played in numerous ensembles, as well as leading the University of London Symphony Orchestra since 2013. 
Georgia studied her Bachelor’s degree in music at King’s College London, and is now a postgraduate student at the Royal Academy of Music.
