Following studies at the Yehudi Menuhin School, Laura Snowden went on to study guitar and composition at the Royal College of Music, winning the Guitar Prize in her first year. She was selected during her time at the RCM for the Tillett Trust, St John’s Smith Square and International Guitar Foundation Young Artists Platforms, and won first prize at the Ivor Mairants Guitar Award and the Ligita International Guitar Duo Competition with duo partner Tom Ellis. Also an accomplished composer, her programme ranges from the renaissance music of Dowland to her own Anpao.
