Iona Reid - Piano Tutor

Iona is a passionate and driven musician, committed to creating and sharing expressive music with the wider community. Determined to pass on the living Scottish tradition to future generations, she hopes to inspire passion to keep the flame burning. After graduating from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland with a first-class BMus Honours in Traditional Music (piano), Iona returned to the building last September on the Continuing Education course in the jazz department. After winning the Danny Kyle award at this year’s Celtic Connections festival, Iona will record an EP with her band ‘Beatha’ this year.

Cutting her teeth in the Ceilidh band world of piano playing, Iona was then enraptured by the solo Trad piano community which she discovered after her move to Glasgow in early 2017. Iona studied with James Ross at Junior conservatoire, and later with Mary McCarthy and Alistair Paterson during her degree, through whom she discovered much of her personal musical language. The solo Trad piano world is so new, so small, and yet bursting with colour and ingenuity; Iona is excited to be involved in this community as it finds its’ home.

Iona’s compositions are inspired by her love for people and nature; culminating, most recently, in her final recital performance of original pieces about water. Entitled ‘at Home in the Water’, she explored the places where she felt most grounded by the natural world, and allowed this feeling to flow through her music; she hopes to record this collection to help it reach more people.
