2021 UPDATE - PLEASE NOTE - the live workshops have ended now, but you can watch them back on the Facebook page! If you'd like to organise some remote learning for yourself or a child/ren, get in touch!
Due to the Coronavirus crisis, my in-person workshops have had to be suspended indefinitely. I am missing you all!
In the meantime, I have decided to do what I can to help you continue to educate your children at home. That's why I am providing free live-streamed musical workshops for children aged 4 - 7 (Key Stage 1) and 7 - 11 (Key Stage 2). Key Stage 1 workshops will focus on the development of fundamental musical skills such and listening, pitch and pulse. Key Stage 2 workshops will build on this, introducing the use of a basic instrument (ukulele) and continuing to develop awareness of pitch, pulse, rhythm, musical structure, how instruments work etc. My hope is that parents will also enjoy taking part in these workshops with their children and we can all learn together!
The times of the workshops are:
Key Stage 1: every Wednesday at 11am
Key Stage 2: every Friday at 11am
My personal philosophy is that music supports good mental health and emotional development, and so my aim is to help your child develop a healthy musical mind during this stressful time.
I am new to the world of live-streamed workshops, so in a way we'll be learning together - but this is the world we live in and music is vital! My goal is to reach 1000 subscribers on my YouTube channel so that I will be able to broadcast live to more people, but until then I will live-stream via this Facebook Group and my Facebook page.
I continue to teach clarinet and saxophone during this time (beginners to advanced), using Skype, WhatsApp or Zoom. Please do get in touch if you're interested in on-line lessons.
Please feel free to share this information with your friends! Thank you, and I look forward to connecting with you all on-line x
