Musicality ~ School Of Music

Musicality: A noun that means sensitivity to, knowledge of, or talent for music. The word also refers to the quality or state of being musical (aka melodiousness.) A musical person has the ability to perceive differences in pitch, rhythm and harmonies. One usually differentiates between two types of musicality: To be able to perceive music (musical receptivity) and to be able to reproduce music as well as creating music (musical creativity).

Vision: Musicality’s aim is to inspire people to enjoy and perceive music as well as be able to reproduce and create their own, depending on their ability, needs and ambitions.

About Me: I began my musical journey at a very young age. I learned the piano from the age of 3 and then at primary school I played the recorder, melodica, violin and classical guitar moving on to learn and eventually qualifying to teach Clarinet, Piano, Saxophone, Flute, Theory and Aural.

Prior to moving to the West Country I taught for over 20 years in and around Buckinghamshire in schools and privately.

I have played in many orchestras, woodwind groups and currently play with Simply 4 Saxophones. I have also recently taken up singing lessons, something I have wanted to do for many years and am in the process of adding the EWI to my list.

Towards the end of 2010 I trained to become a Licensed Kindermusik Educator. There are many musical programmes for children but Kindermusik ticked all the boxes for me as a complete musical learning and educational experience. Kindermusik is built on strong foundations. There are reasons why we do each section of the class - which area of child development it stimulates, which together grow the whole child, with music as the common thread. The parent is key in the whole process, the first and foremost teacher and gets a lot out of the class as well as being vital to continuing the learning at home. Above all, Kindermusik is fun.
