She appears regularly on BBC Radio 3 and to date she has made nine recital/concerto recordings (one of which was nominated for a Grammy® in 2010) with two more concerto discs planned for 2011/12. Also a dedicated teacher, she is frequently asked to give master-classes all over the world and in 2009, together with Suzanne Wolff, established the Netherlands Flute Academy; www.neflac.nl.
