About Me

I am a violin and piano teacher in Sheffield having studied at Birmingham Conservatoire for a degree in music. I also play in the Sheffield folk band Jack's Rake.

I have two young children of my own who I've been singing to since the day they were born – sometimes it feels like I'm their personal entertainer with request after request! Now they're getting older we sing together and it's lovely to see how many of the songs they've learnt during their lives!

The great thing about groups like Tootlepops is that it isn't just about the children. I had just moved to Sheffield when my eldest was born and didn't know anyone except my husband's friends and none of them had children the same age! I joined a baby music group and now have three very close friends as a result – we still meet up every week even though our children are now at school!

So, if you're new to Sheffield or the only one in your social group with a young child, do come along to the friendly, welcoming group of Tootlepops Mums.
