Aimee Presswood grew up in Hong Kong and South Africa before returning to her home country, England, to study.

Neus Peris is a Catalan pianist, currently studying for a masters’ degree at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with Douglas Finch. Her past education took place in Barcelona, with pianist Albert Attenelle.
Neus has performed in many venues in Spain and also in Denmark and France, and regularly takes part in international festivals and masterclass, where she had worked with great and inspiring musicians such as Pascal Rogé, Hortense Cartier-Bresson, David Kujken, and Lylia Zilberstein, among others.
Her repertoire is based in twentieth-Century music, with which she has a special affinity. Last July she was awarded the Yamaha Scholarship given by the Barcelona Piano Academy 2015.
