About

Teacher HandsignI started teaching at Newington Green Primary School in Islington, North London, in 2001. I soon became the music subject leader running a small choir and leading singing assemblies and I enjoyed teaching my own classes songs which I accompanied on guitar. In 2010 I was offered the chance to be the school’s fulltime music teacher. A couple of years before this I had visited Gallions Primary School in Newham and fortunately I recalled the name Kodály from this occasion. I googled the name and came across the British Kodály Academy (BKA). I went on the BKA’s 2010 Summer Course and over the week I realised that this was a very effective way of teaching groups of children music in a fun and meaningful way. For the next three years I studied with the BKA. I am now the music teacher at a large primary school in East London. I teach all the children from the Nursery to Year 6.
