Learning and Development Producer
Frances is thrilled to have joined the LMTO team as Learning and Development Producer, combining her passions for musical theatre and education work. Trained as a French horn player, Frances has enjoyed exploring the boundaries of the music profession both through her playing and her producing experience. Creative learning and participatory music-making form a pivotal part of her career. In 2018, Frances co-founded the music education group, Hold the Drama, where she is the producer and horn player. She is also project manager for Thinking Music, an initiative which builds sustainable music ecosystems that enriches the lives of children, especially in rural areas.
As a horn player, Frances has performed with a wide variety of ensembles, including as a regular dep for The Lion King in the West End, with the Heritage Orchestra and on Pete Tong’s Ibiza Classics tours. Having been an LMTO Dev herself, Frances looks forward to continuing the development of this programme, the professional development workshops, and the schools programme LMTO Upbeat, supporting young musicians from the beginning of their musical journey, through to entering the professional world.
