Sarah is a member of the Academy of St.Martin in-the-Fields and the New London Orchestra and formerly of both Welsh National Opera and the London Philharmonic. As a freelance player she works with most of the orchestras in Great Britain and regularly with the Philharmonia and London Symphony Orchestra.
As a freelance flautist Sarah is able to work in a variety of musical styles ranging from opera, symphony and chamber orchestras, chamber music and recitals, to film sessions and some period instrument work.
Teaching plays an important part in Sarah's musical life, she has been a professor of flute at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama since 1989. In collaboration with Ian Clarke she redesigned the technical requirements for the woodwind at the Guildhall School, this has led to invitations to present workshops at the "Reflective Conservatoire" conference at the Barbican, London and also the "Professional Development" Seminar in Helsinki, Finland.
In addition since September 2010 Sarah has been a professor of flute at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
