Corinne’s first interest in playing came when she was only three years old and was taken to a concert where she fell in love with the cello. Lessons on a lovely old one-eighth size cello followed when she was five. At 17 Corinne won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music where she studied with Dame Florence Hooton and won a number of prizes.

After graduation from the R.A.M. Corinne was able to study with Pierre Fournier, having been awarded scholarships from the Royal Society of Arts and the Countess of Munster Musical Trust. She then enjoyed a varied chamber career which included recitals at the Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room and Manchester midday series. She was a prize winner at the Royal Tunbridge Wells and Greater London Arts Young Musicians competitions.

In 1979 Corinne joined the Philharmonia Orchestra with whom she travelled extensively and worked with some wonderful conductors and musicians. In 1993 she came to Worcestershire as co-principal cellist of the English Symphony Orchestra and English String Orchestra. She is an associate member of the C.B.S..O, loves teaching and coaching to all ages and enjoys being involved in a variety of chamber music groups including The ESO String Orchestra, The London Mozart Players, Sinfonia Viva and Epiphany. Corinne's live performance of Forvantan with the Solihull Symphony Orchestra was recently chosen to be played on BBC Radio 3 as part of the 'Play to the Nation' series. As well as recitals and concerto performanes Corinne has set up an ESO programme to play in Homes and Hospices in the Worcestershire area.
