Sasha Valeri Millwood, MA (Cantab.) MMus (GSMD)

Contact Information

A graduate of the University of Cambridge (where one of the papers for which I studied was the Advanced Keyboard Skills paper) and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama (where I studied Interpretation through Improvisation with Dr David Dolan for two years), I am an experienced soloist, chamber musician, improviser, accompanist, pit-band player, and répétitur. I have worked with musicians of various abilities (from the complete beginner to Andrew Kennedy) and in various contexts (including examinations, professional recitals, competitions, auditions, and functions that require background music). In many cases, I have had to sight-read a part, so I know how to deliver good results in situations with limited/no rehearsal time. I am a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians.

I can improvise elaborations and interludes in various styles, either as a soloist or in collaboration with other performers. Given sufficient preparation time, I can also realise figured bass (including on harpsichord or chamber organ), and even transpose works of a reasonably tonal character. That said, I hasten to add that (unsurprisingly, seeing as I am a composer myself) I would be delighted to play more modern repertoire, too.

I have experience accompanying a range of instruments, voices, and repertoire, including atonal and serial music. A sympathetic chamber musician, I prioritise listening and maintaining good ensemble over burying one’s head in the notes: a good accompanist covers up the other player’s slips and mistakes in performance. However, having worked as a répétitur on several operatic productions, I am also familiar with the contrasting demands of that role, where the priority is to follow the conductor and furnish clear cues for the singers.
