About ‘MooreNotes’

‘MooreNotes’ is a new and exciting venture for me. I have been a music teacher for the past 27 years having taught in a variety of schools in both South and West Yorkshire and have experience of teaching music at KS2 to post 16.

Leading class and group projects, as well as composing for school ensembles and shows has given me an excellent foundation on which to base tailor-made workshops and activities. I am also an avid composer producing original works aimed at the young and the more experienced performer.

'Blow Away The Blues' has a great swing feel and catchy melody. A great way to introduce part singing and 12 bar blues classroom work, ideal for my Year 5s
