“We have a spark and Beth lights the bonfire” Keith Moggach Teacher Bradley Primary School Nelson

“That was the best training day I have experienced in all my years as a teacher” Joanne Leak Teacher St Thomas Primary School Blackburn.

“Beth is one of my most reliable Creative Practitioners. Her deep knowledge of voice, music and sound means she can deliver really sensible training and her love of people means she can work in many different settings, Primary, Secondary, PRU’s and SEN. I can trust her to work hard and come up with the goods!” Mandy Precious, Artistic Director, Burnley Youth Theatre.

She works instinctively, responds and plays with peoples energy and it all comes from a deep grounding, a wide knowledge and a confidence in her ability.” Pete Moser, Director of More Music, Community Music Company.

“Her approach is all inclusive and encourages the most reluctant singer to participate without fear, trepidation or the feeling of inadequacy. We can not recommend Beth highly enough because she is a professional and highly skilled practitioner but with that easy to approach and human touch”. If anybody wants a personal recommendation then please do not hesitate to contact:- Frances Clements AST and Arts Coordinator at St. Thomas’ C. E. Primary School (Platinum Sing Up School) in Blackburn Lancashire.

“Beth achieves sensational results, and has both high standards and an inclusive approach. She has worked with our French Department, our Humanities Department and our Gifted and Talented Singing Ensemble” Lynn Provost, Head of Arts and Drama, Derby High School.

“Beth has a magic touch in finding and supporting the children who need this the most. We call it the ‘Beth touch’ in our school!” Julie Bainbridge, Deputy Head, Deepdale Infants School, Preston.

“I really like your songs Beth.” Ahmed 4Years old, Reception, Bradley Primary.

“All our children have gained in confidence and have found that they can be heard, using their voice, found through the workshops that Beth has led. We have been using Beth as a Creative Practitioner in our school now for 2 years, having found our own funding to pay for her time after Creative Partnerships funding ran out. She is great value for money and has been an inspiration to staff throughout the school. She makes the classroom a really acoustically exciting place to learn.” Mandy Greenwood Deputy Head / SENCO, Bradley Primary School, Nelson, Lancs.

She walks in the room – you know you’re in a safe pair of hands” Pete Moser, Director of More Music, Community Music Company.

Beth has been involved in leading music workshops as part of the development of a three year community singing project culminating in 2012 called Sing the Docks at Riversway Festival in Preston Lancashire for our Guild Year celebrations. Beth has been successful in energising the groups and boosting the confidence in our participant’s singing abilities. Singers of all abilities and ages have taken part in the workshops and have fed back that they have thoroughly enjoyed themselves and would like to continue to take part. Thank you Beth for delivering these fun, high quality sessions”. Samantha Blackburn, Guild Cultural Development Manager.
