Recognised for her remarkable, distinctive tone and exceptional musicality, she began her musical studies at the age of two and took her first saxophone lesson in Sydney aged six. Amy made her concerto debut at 16, and on her 18th birthday made her first recording as soloist with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. That year she moved to London to study at the Royal College of Music with Kyle Horch, then at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Arno Bornkamp. Amy Dickson is a brilliant interpreter of contemporary music and is devoted to the development of new repertoire for the classical saxophone. Working closely with many living composers, she has already made a substantial contribution to the legacy of the instrument’s concerto, chamber and solo repertoire.
