Marie Louise Taylor was born in Bromsgrove in 1965.

She studied at the Royal Academy of Music and graduated in 1986 with the Vivian Langrish Memorial Prize for final performance, and prizes for playing Chopin and Liszt.

In 1988 she gained a Distinction from the Birmingham School of Music.

She was a finalist in the Redditch National Piano Competition.

She was awarded a Scholarship to Hungary where she attended the Kodaly Institute where she studied Music Education. She also took piano and accompaniment lessons at the Liszt Academy n Budapest.

Since returning from Hungary Marie Louise has taught at the Welsh College of Music, the Birmingham Conservatoire, and Birmingham University. She teaches at the Royal Northern College of Music and at Chettham’s School, the specialist school for musically talented youngsters.

Marie Louise has performed at many venues round the country, both as a soloist and as a chamber musician. Among these are Adrian Boult Hall, Royal Holloway College, Warwick University, Welsh College of Music and the Wigmore Hall.

She also enjoyed playing in Shrewsbury under conductor, Richard White, as part of a Concerto Day, as well as the several performances for the Gateway Lunchtime Concert series. Among her other recent performances are recitals in Birmingham and at St Anne’s in Manchester.

We are delighted to welcome her back to the Gateway.
