You can contact any member via the Contact Form on their profile page (use the filters to find the member you would like to contact!).
Please note that individual members choose exactly what information to make public and so some profiles may appear incomplete.
If you have any further membership queries you canĀ email Anja, our membership secretary.

The filters work with any combination of letters in a member’s name or their home town, or any letters or numbers in a postcode and so may produce unexpected results in some cases (ie. a postcode of KN18 1ER would be found in a search for N18). You can select multiple counties by holding down the command key (or equivalent for your specific operating system) and clicking on another county. Please allow the system a second or so between additions for it to search!).

    I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Music from Oxford Brookes University (June 2016). During my time at university I was Musical Director of the String Ensemble for 3 years - this role involved giving guidance to the ensemble in how to improve their performance including giving some tutorials to small groups and individuals. Work with other ensembles includes Orchestras, Choirs and Pit-Bands; including being an Orchestral Leader.

    I have also worked with children and adults with special needs in a music therapy environment as part of a placement with Soundabout for my double honours module in Professional Practice. My long-term goal is to become a Music Therapist. I believe that music is important for everyone and through learning an instrument, you can reap that unique therapeutic value that music has. Whether you want to 'play for pleasure' or work towards the rigour of examinations, music has benefits for us all! Whatever your reason for wanting to play, music will give you a great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction in itself as well as having many other beneficial skills which you can use in other subject areas.

    Since September 2016, I have been working as a Music Tutor in a specialist independent school for children with dyslexia and associate difficulties. My work there has involved covering sick leave for the Head of Music during which I was responsible for preparing pupils for their Carol Service and Harvest festival (and playing the Organ for these), as well as some classroom teaching of 7-12 year olds. I incorporated some Indian music into my teaching, to link into their studies of India in various other curriculum subjects - I like to draw upon links with other curriculum subjects. I continue my work there as a peripatetic tutor on a 1:1 basis.

    My experience working with children and adults who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is extensive, and includes many further contexts, both musical and non-musical, than I can list here. As a result of this, I have pledged to be one of Wiltshire Music Connect's Inclusive Music Aware Practitioners. My recent work in this area involves running weekly class Music sessions in the local special needs school, which is hoping to become a centre of excellence in its provision.

    In addition to my school-based teaching, I teach several private pupils and travel to their homes for lessons. Amongst these are some family groups in which I teach two or more family members; whether siblings, or parent and child - it is a pleasure to see the shared love of Music when working with these families.

    I have an annual subscription to the DBS Update Service and have also completed eight courses in Safeguarding, for both Children and Adults, (certified by Wiltshire Council, Wiltshire Safeguarding Children Board and Oxfordshire Safeguarding Children Board, amongst others). My most recent training has been completing EduCare's Child Protection in Education (Music), which is a Level 2 course endorsed by the Musician's Union.

    In addition to reviewing my safeguarding training, I routinely take part in other CPD activities through my local Music Education Hub, amongst other sources.

    I am a registered Associate Provider of my local Music Education Hub, Wiltshire Music Connect, in recognition of the quality of my teaching. Please visit my page on their website for a more detailed profile:

  • * BA (Hons) in Music
    * Level 3 Diploma in Music Therapy
    * A-Level Music
    * GCSE Music
    * Instrumental Grades
    * Child Protection in Education (Music) Level 2
    * I am currently studying towards Trinity College London's Level 4 Certificate for Music Educators, a qualification which gives recognition to the work I currently do.
