Emma started to play the drums when she was 11. She initially trained in a marching band on the snare drum, before subsequently moving on to playing the full kit in bands and orchestras both in and outside of school.

It wasn't until Emma moved to Bristol in 2014 that she began to pursue a new career exclusively in music. Shortly after arriving, she became the house drummer for the Leftbank jam band before going on to play in a multitude of ensembles throughout the City.

Emma is also a percussionist and regularly plays the cajon, bodhran and frame drum for folk projects as well as contemporary dance. She has worked with a vast range of international choreographers and dancers including Glenn Wilkinson, Bartek Woszczynski, Bawren Tavaziva, Anna Watkins, Ben Dunks and Charlotte Eatock.
