Current and Past Employment
KS2 Music Teacher: Clarendon Junior School
January 2010-March 2013
I recently taught Key Stage 2 music to both lower and upper classes in a community school in Tidworth. I designed my own lesson plans with cross curricular links in order to generate passion and enjoyment in a more creative and productive learning environment. This enabled me to differentiate teaching and learning to the different abilities within the classes. Lessons included music theory, composition, performance and song writing.
