Jill York started the organ in the 6th form at Kendrick School, continuing at Bretton Hall and Reading University. Bringing up a family, teaching and having a Quaker background meant she stopped playing for 33 years, then took it up again and studied with Jonathan Holl. Jill has taught music and archaeology in secondary schools and colleges, taught piano and organ privately and been director of music at a local church. She now deputises occasionally and plays the organ because she loves it. She is a past President of the Berkshire Organists’ Association.
