Jacqueline had her debut recital in June 2019 ‘Music for a While’ at All Saints Church West Dulwich, followed by another concert in October, 'Music of the Night' which raised over £1,000 for a new audio and visual system at her local church, St Mary of Nazareth. During 2019 Jacqueline also performed at a private inauguration and the ‘Last Night of the Proms’ charity event by the Salvation Army, Croydon.

In February 2020 Jacqueline performed her first duet recital with Francesca Lauri a fellow pianist at Trinity in Beckenham, which was a raving success.
