• Mentoring & Training Workshops for Educators & Carers

    I offer skills building sessions for teachers, families, beginner/intermediate storytellers and anyone interested in music and storytelling, on the use and purpose of playfulness and musicality within storytelling.


    • Learn how to use interactive stories and music with children up to 8 years old
    • Learn techniques for including children and adults with additional needs as part of a wider group
    • Learn to build trust and engagement with children and adults through the the way you interact with and involve them
    • Build your confidence in using play, music and story to connect with your participants (and nieces, nephews and grandchildren!)


    I can also share specialist techniques and ideas for working with children on the autism spectrum, and ways of working with elders with dementia.
