She is a previous winner of Trinity Laban's John Halford Competition for Contemporary Music (piano category), and Gladys Puttick Extemporisation Competition with duo partner and dancer Adam Russell; she was awarded an LCM London Schools and Teachers Award in 2011. Madelaine also has a passion for ensemble playing, duetting with soloists and working with choirs from an early age: her choral accompaniment experience has included working alongside the BBC Singers, the Medway Singers and the Walderslade Primary School Choir. Madelaine has a particular interest in early keyboard music and instruments, previously studying harpsichord with James Johnstone via an Early Music Scholarship at Trinity Laban. She has performed as a harpsichordist and chamber organist with the Trinity Laban Baroque Orchestra and Vocal Ensemble in the Greenwich Early Music Festival.
As a soloist, Madelaine is also a previous winner of the Medway Young Musicians Awards, and the under-16s category of the Kent Messenger's Focus competition, judged by Jools Holland. She has also participated in masterclasses with numerous renowned keyboardists, including Cristina Ortiz, Pascal Rogé and Ronan O’Hora. Madelaine has recently graduated from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, studying piano and improvisation with Penelope Roskell and Douglas Finch respectively.
Madelaine is also a keen writer, having reviewed for Bachtrack, guest-posted on the Cross-Eyed Pianist and Zeitschichten, and written published poetry: a winning entrant in the Foyle Young Poets Awards 2008, Madelaine has since been published in e-zines and magazines such as Pomegranate and Popshot.
