Grace Scott Deuchar studied her undergraduate degree as a scholar at the Royal Academy of Music. Having spent a year studying in Paris with David Walter after graduating, she is now a John Fewkes scholar at the Royal Northern College of Music, and over the years has studied the oboe predominantly with Nicholas Daniel, Melanie Ragge and Stephane Rancourt. Grace enjoys a wide range of musical activities, playing at various concert halls across the UK and has worked, in this time, with conductors such as Sir Colin Davis, Semyon Bychkov, Marin Alsop and Trevor Pinnock. She recently performed in a joint project between the RNCM and the Paris Conservatoire which involved concerts in London, Paris and Manchester and a recording for BBC Radio 3. She has performed with her trio in the Royal Albert Hall, and, a keen recitalist, has performed many solo concerts at her home county of Kent (where she was the winner of the Maidstone Young Musician of the year Competition and of the Canterbury Concerto competition), her most recent recital being in the Church of St-Martin-In-The-Fields. Grace is also a keen baroque oboist, and performed in the London Handel festival and with the Oxford Bach soloists during the Easter. Grace looks forward to completing her studies next year, with the generous support of Help Musicians UK.
