She now teaches Reception and Year 1 full time at Bellefield School in Trowbridge. However, she is still very much involved in teaching music and runs the Trowbridge Superstrings group at Bellefield school. She is currently working towards completing the Certificate in Dalcroze Eurhythmy; an holistic approach to teaching music.
