I am a professional singer and musical theatre performer & teacher. After graduating from the Italia Conti Academy of Performing Arts in London with Honours, I toured Germany in ‘Phantom of the Opera’ understudying and playing the role of Christine.
Since then I have appeared in numerous productions including: ‘Cabaret’, Union Theatre, London, ‘Return to the Forbidden Planet’, London and Herts, ‘Tonight’, Peacock Theatre, London. I have also appeared in many pantomimes up and down the country playing principal girl and more recently the Wicked Witch!
I have been a session singer and vocalist for various bands & even toured the UK and Ireland as a dancer and Magicians assistant!
I began teaching in my last year at Italia Conti and am very lucky to be teaching music and performing arts at several different schools in Essex and Herts to students aged 5 months - adult!
Tiny TemposTM was established in 2012 by sisters Becky and Fern Oliver to offer fun, friendly classes run by professional music teachers.
I am a Primary school teacher with 25 years experience of teaching music to young children in North London and Hertfordshire. I have a teaching degree as well as an MA in Education from the Cambridge Institute of Education.
I have 2 children aged 15 and 17, both learning to play a variety of instruments.
I have always been interested in how a child’s early experiences contribute to their overall development and how every child has the potential to be musical and to develop language, memory and imagination through musical activities.
