Nao Maebayashi

Nao Maebayashi studied with Alexander Kelly, former professor at Royal Academy of Music, before entering Trinity College of Music in 1996.

Nao continued her studies with Douglas Finch, where she was awarded a Bachelor of Music (B.Mus) degree. In 2001, she completed a Master of Music (M.Mus) degree under the guidance of Raphael Torroni at London College of Music. Thereafter, she focused on contemporary piano with Evgenia Chudinovich and Philip Mead. Since then, Nao has won several prizes in music festivals and performed in New Quays Concert, London, hosted by Elena Riu.

Currently Nao teaches at Gordon’s school in Surrey and performs with contemporary ensemble, Metapraxis. She also has her own piano duo and performs regularly with a violinist, Tamaki in the London and Surrey region.

Tamaki Dickenson

Japanese born violinist and violist, Tamaki Dickenson started violin at the age of seven. She won at the South Japan Music Competition several times. She was invited to study with Lewis Kaplan in New York City, and received both bachelors and masters degrees from Mannes College of Music.

In 2002, Tamaki formed the award-winning Degas Quartet, which appeared at several prestigious venues in the United States, including Carnegie Hall, the Aspen Music Festival and the Library of Congress, and was also broadcast on NPR.

Tamaki moved to the UK in 2007 and since then she has enjoyed being involved in many aspects of music, such as teaching, solo performances, chamber music and orchestral playing.

Being passionate about education and bringing music to the community, Tamaki has organized outreach projects in North Carolina, USA and Kagoshima, Japan.
