Welcome to my singing courses.
Introducing my new course 'Let's Begin' - A 10 day course for children aged 2-6 (approx).
Children love to learn these songs and make them their own. These songs come from our culture and heritage and have been tried and tested. Through songs, rhymes and musical games, children will be introduced to musical concepts such as high and low pitch, loud and soft, fast and slow, rhythm and pulse and inner-hearing. What makes this approach unique is that the activities using the songs are presented in a highly methodical way and designed to be progressive so concepts are experienced first and then made conscious. This will lay the foundation for reading and writing music later.
Here you can view my introduction PLUS the FIRST LESSON FOR FREE (see the end of page).
Read on to find out why your children will LOVE them!
"I believe that music is our birthright and that music should belong to everyone. It's my life's purpose to share my love of music, to inspire, bring joy and join communities together. I studied as a pianist at Chetham's School of Music where I gained my ARCM and LGSM diplomas and won many prizes and awards. I went on to gain a music degree from Kings' College London. I studied singing at the Royal Northern College of Music and I was awarded a Certificate of Professional Practice in Early Years Learning from the British Kodály Academy and Roehampton University. I have many years experience teaching all ages from babies to mature adults in singing, piano and musicianship"
10 Reasons why you should choose this course...

Subject matter - songs are about animals and normal everyday activities that children will relate to.
Confidence - there are opportunities for the children to invent their own actions and words so they have ownership of the songs.
Memory & concentration - both skills will be developed and strengthened by copying short melodies and pitch matching. These skills will enhance your child's abilities in other areas of learning too.

" You are very good at singing and I like you"
Zac, aged 5
"My 2-year old was entranced from the very beginning of Eleanor's class. He laughed and sang and reacted to Eleanor all the way through. That night he insisted on a teddy bear in bed and I could hear him singing the teddy bear song in his cot for ages!"
