She has won first prize in a number of competitions, starting in 2004 when she won the Making Music Philip and Dorothy Green Award for Young Concert Artists.  She also won the Beethoven Society of Europe's Intercollegiate Piano Competition (2006), The Hastings International Concerto Competition  as well as the Sir Philip Ledger Prize for the best Mozart or Beethoven Concerto (2006) and the Worshipful Company of Musicians' Maisie Lewis Young Concert Artists Fund Award (2007).  Her debut recital at St John's Smith Square in 2009 was chosed to be recorded by 'Slow Down London', to be featured in their 2010 festival.  Also in 2010, she was shortlisted for a 'Woman of the Future' Award in Arts and Culture in association with Shell and as a result, she was invited to give an interview for Stylist  Magazine in March 2011.

She was awarded a fellowship from the Guildhall School of Music for the year 2007/8, where she studied under the Senior Professor Joan Havill and was awarded a major educational award from the Musicians' Benevolent Fund to continue her postgraduate studies at the school.  She previously studied at Chetham's School of Music in Manchester with the Polish pianist Alicja Fiderkiewicz.  She has also recently been awarded a scholarship from the Dartington International Summer Festival where she took masterclasses with Stephen Bishop-Kovacevich.  In November 2011, Samantha recorded both solo and duet albums (with Maciej Raginia) for Schott Music Publishers.

Future engagements in 2011/12 include recital and concerto engagements around the UK, as well as a concerto recording of the Dora Bright Piano Concerto in A minor with the Morley Chamber Orchestra under Charles Peebles.  In August 2012, Samantha will record the piano works of Rory Freckleton at the Wathen Hall, St Paul's School.

'Your playing generates excitement. This is a player with valuable gifts. (James Lisney, Pianist, 2006)

'This was one of the best Schumann cadenzas I have ever heard.' (Alessio Bax, Pianist, 2008)

'this pianist gave a stunning performance full of clarity and emotion.  This was a performance with impact, presence and excitement.' (Knighton Chamber Orchestra, Leicester, 2009)

'The main work was the set of Beethoven Bagatelles op 126.  These works are extremely demanding technically and even more demanding psychologically but she has made them hers and it was a magnificent rendition.'  (Jeffrey Carson, Paros Life Magazine, Greece 2010)
