* Sheila studied recorder at Lancaster University and later undertook post-graduate studies with Philip Thorby at Trinity College of Music. After more than twenty years spent working as a freelance recorder teacher in and around SE London, she relocated to the East Midlands in 2006. She is now a regular conductor of Lincolnshire SRP and currently directs an adult recorder workshop in Lincoln. She does, however, continue to play with South London SRP and is joint conductor of the London Recorder Orchestra. Sheila is also a keen arranger of music for recorder ensemble and, as a busy visiting conductor, usually provides a varied programme of music. In 2001 she founded Willobie Press, which publishes some of her work, and is happy to bring publications to Branch visits/Playing Days.
