The Scottish soloist on music as a force for social improvement:


  • Keen Ned says:

    The word she’s struggling to find is ’empowerment’ – but bravo to her for saying it. There are many people who might do well to listen carefully to what she has to say. Music isn’t a fashion accessory, nor a badge of social achievement.

  • Derek says:

    Nicola is always so encouraging, so dedicated and such a good example.
    She gives a lot, which is appreciated and respected.

  • fflambeau says:

    It is precisely because music is a force against inequality that it is under attack by forces from the far-right world-wide.

    This musician understand this.

  • M2N2K says:

    If she is talking specifically about inequality of opportunity to have access to musical education, then she is making a valid point.
