Music Matters is Ten!

January 30, 2011

Last week, Music Matters celebrated its 10th birthday!  All week, the children came to their lessons in fancy dress and we raised just over £200 for Rosie’s Rainbow Fund, which was fantastic.  

On Tuesday, we had a visit from the Maidenhead Advertiser and they did a lovely write-up for us.  Then, a few days later, I received a call from BBC Berkshire and they’ve asked me to come in and do an interview!  I’m busy choosing some of my favourite music for the show, which will be on 7th February at 3pm, and I can’t wait.

Before I set up Music Matters, I worked as a school music teacher and I am also qualified to teach English as a foreign language.  The connection between music and language has always fascinated me and research shows that an early start in music can give children a real advantage when it comes to language development.  That’s why I teach children from birth, almost literally – two of my pupils experienced their first Music Matters lessons when they were just 3 days old!

The feedback I have received from parents is really positive and many of them report a huge improvement in language skills when their children start coming to my lessons.  That feedback makes it all worthwhile and I’m really looking forward to the next 10 years.
