A little bit about me !
Hi there, my name is Naomi and I have I recently set up MusicKids to instill a lifetime love of music in children from a young age, which I am extremely passionate about.
I have worked with children for the last 20 years as a montessori teacher, directing children's choirs, and I currently work as a music teacher in Rathmichael N.S, Shankill and St Francis N.S, Newcastle.
I am "mama" to three gorgeous girls and after experiencing first hand what a positive effect music has in the early years, I decided to study the Lynn Kleiner Music Rhapsody programme, her lessons are fun, playful and an ideal platform for preparing each child to play an instrument. I love this play based approach of teaching and that is why I have continued my studies so that I can continue to support my students on their musical journey and teach the Simply Music Piano programme which follows the same principles as Music Rhapsody and children as young as 6 years of age can start playing songs of different genres after their very first few lessons.
I am so excited about this approach to learning piano. It is a remarkable piano method that looks at both teaching and learning of music in a totally new light.
This programme redefines how music is taught and sets a new standard in entry-level music learning.
My baby & toddler classes are fun, energetic and inclusive for all children and parents are encouraged to join in and will be provided with material to use at home to assist in developing the child's music abilities that they were born with.
I look forward to meeting you in class !
