Her repertoire is hugely diverse, ranging from core classical music to twentieth century and contemporary music. Joanna MacGregor has made over thirty solo recordings, ranging from Bach, Scarlatti, Ravel and Debussy, to jazz and contemporary music.
Joanna read music at Cambridge University, studying composition with Hugh Wood, and continued her postgraduate studies with Christopher Elton at the Royal Academy of Music
