Roselyn Maynard was born and educated in Switzerland. She took her Masters degree in Performance and Teaching at the Hochschule der Künste Zürich.

She studied for her Postgraduate Diploma in Performance at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where she played the world premiere of her first commission - Luke Styles' Recorder Concerto.

Together with the other members of the recorder quintet Consortium5, Roselyn performs all over the UK. The group has commissioned many original works for recorder, most recently a piece commemorating the centenary of the death of the Suffragette Emily Davison, composed by Roxanna Panufnik. As well as working with composers, Consortium5 lead educational projects for people of all ages, aiming to transform the classroom experience of the recorder.

Consortium5 have released their first album with the nonclassical label, since reviewed by Chicago Time Out as being one of the top ten classical albums of the year.

Roselyn is a committed teacher. She is involved in the ‘In Harmony’ Project in the London Borough of Lambeth, a ground-breaking musical education project based on ‘El Sistema’. She also leads a number of Wider Opportunities programmes for Lambeth Music Service.

Her interest in movement and bodily awareness, and her study of dispokinesis and Alexander Technique have informed Roselyn’s stage performance and teaching.

Besides her musical activities, Roselyn has been practising the Japanese martial art of Aikido for more than ten years.
