I hold a Degree in Education (music and English) and have about 20 years experience teaching music and English in schools and in an independent capacity.
My experience includes teaching at University workshops for students requiring bridging prior to starting degrees.
The creative side of learning is something which I have a particular interest in and
I believe that great care must be taken care to give all children in all ages the opportunity to gain the highest level of English literacy as well as musical literacy.
Most fundamental to my philosophy however is the conviction that language is the most powerful tool that humanity possesses and that music is a vital part of the cognitive and emotional development of children of all ages.
