I've been working with children and young people for about 20 years now! My experience is a mixture of playwork, performance, support work in schools and arts workshop facilitation. Since 2004 I've been running Funsense Theatre Company, an arts organisation offering all sorts of arts and drama activities.
With the music side of things I am available to book to bring my songs to younger audiences. I visit community events as well as nurseries and schools, both special and mainstream. I enjoy performing shows that the children can be a part of as well as enjoy as an audience. My aim with a performance and/or workshops is to help children have fun and see the value of their work and ideas. Workshops can focus on writing songs, poetry or creating artwork and puppets and tie in with a theme if requested.
An example structure in a school would be a morning performance to everyone in an assembly followed by a series of classroom based workshops and shows throughout the day. I'm able to pitch workshops accordingly depending on the year group.
Please get in touch if you are interested in me coming along and I can send you some further information.
