Dawn Elizabeth Howells

Dawn Elizabeth Howells (Proprietor)

“I do not think that my essential beliefs have changed since I could first reach the piano keys.” Dawn learnt the piano from a young age and later worked as a pianist in Cologne Opera. Subsequently, her career as a piano recitalist - she studied with Yonty Solomon - extended to hundreds of performances both in Britain and abroad, and as a teacher of the piano her track record extended over thirty years. She ran Belsize Music Rooms for thirteen years before establishing Peregrine's Pianos in 2010. Dawn, who also practises as a business advisor to musicians, set up Peregrine's Pianos Trading Ltd (piano import and distribution) in August 2015. At home in Hatton Garden, she still spends hours playing classical masterworks for piano.
