“There’s always a relaxed atmosphere and Sarah encourages every child to join in and enjoy music.”
At Kindermusik with Sarah we believe that MUSIC IS THE KEY to unlocking your young child’s potential.
Through our engaging classes, we provide a weekly opportunity for children and parents to CONNECT with each other and with others. Our small classes allow us to NURTURE and include every individual child whilst we all ENJOY making music together and SHARE our experiences.
In addition to our relaxed and friendly classes, we provide every family with IDEAS and resources to continue the joy of music making at home. We work together with all our families to lay the foundations for a lifelong love of music and learning. Let us give your child the best start in life together!
We are proud to have received a Maestro Top Programme award from Kindermusik International for teaching excellence for the last four years.
I am the founder of Kindermusik with Sarah and have been a musician for as long as I can remember! After starting to play the recorder at infant school, I went on to study the violin and clarinet. Having well and truly caught the music bug, I went on to gain a first class honours music degree from the University of Bristol.
Music continues to be a major part of my life as I am very lucky to perform with two local orchestras alongside my cellist husband and various chamber ensembles. I am also the founder of the Whiteknights Ensemble. Added to this is the rewarding, though sometimes challenging, task of helping my own children with their musical practice and taxiing them to their various musical activities!
I first discovered the joys of Kindermusik when my eldest son was at day nursery and knew that it was special! Ever since my children were very small, the house has been filled with a huge variety of musical sounds – bongos, drums, violins, singing, piano, trombone to name a few! My youngest son was one of my own first Young Child Kindermusik graduates.
Discovering the joy that young children can experience through music during their early years led me down the path of training to teach the wonderful Kindermusik curriculum in 2013. By teaching at Kindermusik with Sarah, I now share my love of music with children and their parents so hopefully, as a family, you can develop the same lifelong appreciation and enjoyment of music that I have.
Hi my name is Rachel and I am so excited to be joining Kindermusik with Sarah.
Music has always been a part of my life. It started when at the age of 3 I begged my parents to let me play the violin! They were told that I was too young so at the age of 5 I began violin lessons and immediately loved being able to express my emotions through my violin.
I was very fortunate to gain a scholarship to a music school where I studied with some wonderful musicians and performed in some amazing venues. I added another string to my bow (excuse the pun!) by also studying the viola which I have enjoyed playing in orchestras.
Alongside my passion for music I became very interested in midwifery and worked for the NHS as a midwife and later a health visitor. I really enjoyed supporting women and their families at such a special time and found it very rewarding.
Nowadays I am kept busy by my 3 children but still continue to share my love of music by teaching the violin at a music centre. I also perform about 4 times a year with a local orchestra. I play the piano weekly for a Community choir which is really rewarding.
I cannot wait to combine my knowledge of child development with my passion for music and bring the joy and magic of Kindermusik to even more families.
