Hi! My name is Natalie and I am a freelance writer specialising in ghostwriting, but I am also adept at many kinds of freelance and web writing: copywriting, press releases, articles, web content.

My early training was in classical music, and I have two postgraduate degrees in theory and research. I am a pianist and I teach piano and theory. Since 1990 I have run my own music teaching studio. I am also an accompanist.

Along with my studies and early experience in Canada, I have researched and taught music in England, and have also taught English as a Foreign Language in Prague, Czech Republic. 

But besides music, I also have a passion for the written word and writing is the cornerstone of my daily living.
