​How long have you been working with Musical Futures?
I first saw MF in action during a PHCE mentor training session at Reading University in 2007. There was a group demonstrating “In at the deep end”. I was instantly hooked! I’ve spent my career since then convincing my HoDs  to adopt the teaching style within our Departments!

What do you do?
I am currently a part time secondary school music teacher.

What is your background?
I’m originally from Glasgow and at 18 I moved down south to study a BMus at the University of Huddersfield from 2002-2005. I specialised in voice. I then stayed on and did my PGCE in secondary Music teaching and got a job in Maidenhead. I now work in Bracknell.

Five words that sum up Musical Futures?
Innovative, inclusive, exciting, inspirational, engaging

What music are you listening to at the moment?​
Lots of nursery rhymes as I’m on maternity leave with my second daughter!
