Jemma trained as a classical flute player, but she realised, soon after a classmate hit her on the head with a flute, that it wasn’t her jam. She has been passionate about music since the age of 4 years old, where her brilliant parents gifted her the opportunity to join theatre groups, dance classes and music schools. After completing a Bachelor of Music at the WA Academy of Performing Arts (the same campus as Hugh Jackman!) she has gone on to enjoy an endlessly vibrant and diverse career in children’s music, theatre and TV production. For more on her story, listen to Episode 55, Jamming with Jemma.
