As a Primary School teacher in charge of Music. I directed a number of small musicals for a four teacher country school. All children were involved in these productions. Examples are Starship Silver Grey, Of Mice and Mozart, Ashton’s Boot. Several of the students involved have gone on to perform in the Arts in adult life.
I have assisted the Senior Syndicate at Gate Pa School with two of their Musicals.
I have been the choir mistress for Gate Pa School, so far being part of two Kids for Kids concerts with Suzanne Prentice and two Schools Choir Festival.
For the last two years, I have taught specialised dance, music and drama in the Junior syndicate.

As Musical Director, I feel it is part of my job to coach cast members in their singing, particularly on the technical side of their songs. I want to present the show and the cast as the best they can be. My goal has always been to have a show that is as professional as I can make it.Please also view my Theatrical Experience and Training Experience pages.
