Dorothea Aspinall showed remarkable early ability for the piano, as might be expected from one whose father was a professional violinist and assistant music master at Wellington College. At the age of twelve she won an exhibition at Reading University, where for five years she studied with Howard Jones , afterwards gaining an open scholarship at the Royal College of Music. She there carried off the Wilson Scholarship, enabling her to study with Irene Scharrer and eventually to launch out on a distinguished professional career.
She, has played piano concertos with many of the country's leading orchestras, and has broadcast on numerous occasions both by herself and with Audrey Piggott as a member of the New English Trio.
