Annette joined us as the Loan Scheme Assistant in 2011

"One of the things I enjoy most about the work at Benslow Music Instrument Loan Scheme is selecting instruments for our borrowers to try out. I look forward to the visits and hearing the wonderful young musicians who come as they try each one."

Working for Benslow and being surrounded by beautiful instruments and music in a wonderful old house is Annette's dream job. Before joining the team at Benslow Music Instrument Loan Scheme she studied the trombone and classical guitar and worked at a specialist woodwind and brass instrument shop. Her interest in music is mainly in woodwind and brass instruments.

In 2007 Annette took up the flute, passed her grade 5 a year and a half later, and has more recently taken up the viola.

Annette's partner is a professional brass player and teacher, and she has three children. Apart from music she enjoys sewing and dressmaking and collects dolls.
