My Profile


The foundation of performing arts is positive thinking, and as live and evolving art forms it is this foundation that inspires creativity, self-expression and personal development.
Without this positive thinking there is no foundation to build on, leaving no satisfaction or achievement for either the student or the tutor. It is also one of the most un-reliable, in-secure, frustrating, confusing and rewarding occupations you can go into!

These workshops have been created and developed to enhance and enrich the music skills of students in years 7 to 10 and to give a little more focus to small groups that class teaching is unable to cater for. I have found that Positive participation in these workshops often improves social, communication & concentration skills and reflects favourably in other subjects for the less academically minded student.

I have run these workshops both as an extension of the music curriculum and also as after school clubs
