I love sharing my passion for music with children. Showing them the joy that music can bring is very important. I believe that music has truly healing effects on every soul.
All my music sessions have one thing in common: the music is always live. I aim to introduce children to music in a simple and friendly way, yet I like to challenge them. How else are we to find the next Beethoven, Mozart or perhaps even Jimi Hendrix?
I strive to bring fun packed musical sessions, leaving children happy, with a new tune stuck in their little (Big!) mind and excited about the next class!
