'Playing the piano is like having an orchestra at my fingertips'- Nellie Bell.
She has always been passionate when it comes to the piano, she loves being aggressive with the keys and using all her energy to express how she feels

Music is freedom, the freedom of expression. Music to me means art, politics, drama, pain, love and happiness and all that life has to offer.' - Nellie Bell
