Education

As an experienced Music Therapist working in education and in the NHS for a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Team, I am well aware of the ways in which music can enrich a school’s curriculum, promote excellence and help students who find school challenging.

  • Cross Curricular

My music workshops allow students to celebrate culture from a range of heritages. I am happy to tailor workshops to complement whole-school programmes, for example ‘National Poetry Day’ or ‘Black History Month’

  • Working with Challenged Students

Specialist workshops can be designed in collaboration with the SENCO to meet the needs of students who find accessing learning difficult. The kinaesthetic, visual and auditory nature of the lessons means that identified students’ needs can be met outside a formal class environment.

I have several years of experience in schools, working with small groups such as nurture groups, children on pupil premium and those with SEN. I offer smaller intimate groups so that students can reflect on communication, interaction and relationships within the class setting.

  • Promoting Excellence

Music enriches the broader aspects of achievement, such as those reflected in the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils. Music workshops allow a creative environment to develop this aspect of school life. Indeed exploring, investigating, discovering and independent learning through music can benefit students throughout your school.
