Personal Description:

I am a recent graduate of the University of Greenwich where I gained a PGCE in Primary Education. As a passionate specialist in music, I chose to concentrate on how music can benefit children with ASD during my Professional Enhancement module. I centred my research on the ‘triad of impairments’ and visited Elmhurst Primary School to observe how the specialist music teacher used music to develop the children’s interpersonal skills. Since graduating from the University of Greenwich, I have become a classroom teacher in London where I completed my NQT induction year and took on the responsibility of the music coordinator where I developed the school’s music curriculum, singing assemblies and after school music provisions for the children.

Tutoring Experience:

I am also a graduate of Bangor University, having obtained a first-class Bachelor of Music with Honours degree. I was awarded the Robert Pascall Award by the Bangor University School of Music for my edition of Philippe Basiron’s Missa de Franza, which was regarded as ‘reaching a professional standard’ and ‘readily publishable’ by Professor Christian Leitmeir, Associate Professor of Music at Magdalen College, Oxford. It has subsequently been published. During this time, I also became a piano and music theory teacher and completed an ABRSM Diploma in Instrumental Teaching. This helped me to develop many effective strategies for helping my students to achieve the highest possible standards in preparation for their ABRSM piano performance and music theory exams.

Tutoring Approach:

Prior to attending Bangor University, I was the accompanist and co-musical director of the Maletones Choir, Wales. This gave me plenty of experience in leading a choir as I attended weekly rehearsals to accompany and rehearse with the choir in preparation for concerts. I have also gained experience in planning and organising shows and musical productions as I was the musical director of the New Start Theatre Company, Wrexham. This involved organising and producing professional quality compilation shows within a short time limit, including Those Good Olde Days, A Handful of Songs, We’ll Keep a Welcome and A Dickens of a Christmas. Since moving to London, I have also gained experience as a music leader for Funky Monkey Keyboards and KeyNotes Music. This involved teaching small groups of children how to read music and play pieces of music on keyboards.
