Having started playing the flute in primary school, Chloe began teaching herself saxophone in September 2012 upon being given an old instrument. She started having lessons a year later, and joined the school saxophone group and big band before gaining a place to study at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2015. Since starting at the College, Chloe has enjoyed many opportunities to play a variety of saxophones, and has began to explore the wide range of both solo and ensemble repertoire available.
