I am very excited to be working at Safa Community School as the Head of Primary Music. I look forward to inspiring many children to join in with music making throughout the school.
I live in Dubai with my husband and two children who are also attending Safa Community School. We love exploring the UAE and travelling abroad. I really enjoy performing and have played many times in the UAE as part of a string quartet. I also sang on stage with The Rolling Stones when they performed in Abu Dhabi!
I graduated from the Royal Academy of Music, London, with a First-Class honours degree. In London, I worked for Live Music Now, a charity which involved giving musical workshops in hospitals, special needs schools and prisons. I moved to the UAE in 2010 for my first International teaching post and completed my PGCE. I am very passionate about music education and the benefits it can bring to all students. I play the ‘cello, piano and I love to sing! I have experience teaching music to all the year groups in Primary and I love to rehearse choirs and ensembles to prepare for concerts. I can’t wait to start making music at Safa Community School!
