Fionagh was climbing onto an organ bench at a very early age and had an ongoing fascination with pianos, which led to formal lessons beginning at the age of eight. Once in her teens, and tall enough to reach the organ pedals, she received organ lessons from the organist at the local church.
Fionagh began composing short pieces for her students in response to being unable to nd suitable teaching materials. Students frequently asked for their favourite music and she arranged the music to suit their abilities and experience. From this her love of composing and arranging rapidly expanded and grew.
Fionagh has gained qualifications from the Southern Music Training Centre, London College of Music, Trinity College of Music, and she has a Postgraduate Certi cate in Music Technology from Hertfordshire University. Fionagh is currently studying for a degree in music composition and musicology with the Open College of the Arts.
Fionagh is a Fellow of The Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM), a member of The Royal College of Organists, Royal Schools of Church Music and Regional Organiser for The European Piano Teachers Association.
Along with her own teaching practice, she has also taught in music schools, and as a peripatetic piano/keyboard teacher in both private and state schools.
