Becky is a storyteller, cellist and music workshop leader, with a particular interest in working with young children and their families. After studying for her Masters in Contemporary Music at Goldsmiths University, she found a passion for stories and storytelling. She now leads projects in schools, delivers pre-concert talks for families and devises story and music sessions for early years groups.
For the past 13 years Paul has been working with young children and families, leading music sessions and performing as an under-5s storyteller and actor.
‘My work always has music at its core; I studied music composition at university and play the violin, guitar and piano. In my sessions I strive for enjoyment, interactivity and learning in a relaxed but alive environment – and I love to introduce families to new, engaging songs and musical experiences!’
Samantha has been an early years music teacher for nine years, and freelances as a children’s entertainer and piano tutor. She is a trained actor-musician, allowing her to blend action with music within her theatre practice – perfect for musical storytelling! She plays the flute and works as a puppeteer, and is sure to include these elements in bringing story sessions to life.
