FAQ

Q) Are you regulated?

A) I am a full member of The Musicians’ Union. The Union strongly endorses ‘The Music Education Code of Practice’ that was originally created for and by the profession through Music Leader and Sound Senses. The Music Education Code of Practice helps to ensure music practitioners provide high quality music making and learning experiences for the people they work with. The Code does this by providing a set of quality statements concerning all aspects of music learning.

I have adopted the Code of Practice and am fully committed to providing high-quality work and teaching. I recommend that all teachers, employers, pupils and parents be well acquainted with the code and adopt it when working together.
