Musical qualifications
Annie has a degree from the Royal Academy of Music where her principal studies were piano and oboe.  Her other musical qualifications include:

  • LRAM diploma in piano teaching
  • ARCM diploma in piano teaching
  • Grade VIII silver medallist (second highest mark in Britain of all instrument exams for that period)
  • GCE A level Music with distinction

As a Composer
Annie has now written four albums of instrumental music (see Annie Locke website, where you can sample and buy her music). She released her fourth album, A Glimmer of Hope last year. This is an album of her own solo piano pieces. Samples of these can be found on this site.

She has given many solo concerts on both piano and using multi-keyboards, and these include a solo piano recital of her own music at Cheltenham Town Hall, and more recently, at the Berlin Philharmonic Hall. Some of her concerts have included on-the-spot improvisations - some of which became the basis for pieces on her album 'Memories'.

She has also improvised musical portraits of friends in their presence and these became pieces on her album 'Portraits'.

For a number of years (16) Annie was the resident pianist at the Three Ways House Hotel in Mickleton, near Chipping Campden (well-known for its Pudding Club of Great Britain), where she played a variety of styles in the restaurant, including her own compositions.

She is deeply interested in the effects of music and sound on health and has given talks, and broadcasts on radio, on the subject.
