She graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2011 and is now continuing her studies at the Universität der Künste, Berlin with Konstantin Heidrich. She had won various scholarships and awards including second prize in the International Israeli Music Competition, the concerto competition at the ISA festival, Vienna and scholarships from the Countess of Munster, DAAD, Martin Musical Scholarship Fund, Drapers' Company and the Worshipful Company of Musicians.

As a soloist and chamber musician Ella has performed in venues such as the Barbican, Fairfield Halls, Purcell Room, Snape Maltings and Wigmore Hall. She has also toured extensively throughout Europe including France, Denmark and Istanbul and played on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune and Portuguese radio RTP. She has been invited to play in festivals such as the Thy (Denmark), Aurora (Sweden), Viana (Portugal) and IMS Prussia Cove chamber music festivals where she performed alongside artists such as Peter Donohoe and Jean-Guihen Queyras. As a concerto soloist Ella has appeared with Orchestras such as the New English Concert Orchestra, the Spirit of Europe Orchestra and the Chichester Camerata. Ella has participated in masterclasses with Frans Helmerson, Steven Isserlis and Ralph Kirshbaum and as a chamber musician with Thomas Ades, Eric Hobath, Heime Muller and Andras Schiff. She has also attended the ProQuartet Academy, France and Britten-Pears Academy, Aldeburgh.

Philharmonia Orchestra's Martin Musical Scholarship Fund, administered by the Philharmonia Orchestra, has given invaluable support to countless young musicians since 1968.

Its anonymous founder and benefactor provided enough money to enable exceptionally talented students to bridge the difficult gap between full-time study and professional status. Many Martin Music Scholarship Fund award winners have gone on to extremely successful orchestral or solo careers with names such as Natalie Clein, Nigel Kennedy, Freddy Kempf, Steven Isserlis and Jennifer Pike forming part of the Fund's alumni.
