Who are we?

BA primary Education (Music and Early YEars), with QTS
Finn is a trained primary school teacher; specialising in the Early Years and in Music Education. Music has always been central in her life. Having previous experience working as a nursery and primary school classroom teacher as well as music lead in Southwark and Camden Primary schools and nurseries, Finn is now focussing solely on building and developing Crescendo around Surrey and Sutton; in particular, on music with pre- and post-natal mums and babies.
Having gained her own initial musical experiences at a young age with Camden Music before moving onto teaching workshops and classes across Camden, she came up with the idea for Crescendo in early 2011. She started classes, with the support of the Camden Music Service, and then expanded to schools, nurseries and settings across Camden. She has completed training in various early years styles of teaching and uses her research and training to provide classes that are catered specifically for each child. Particular focus is given to pitch matching, exciting repertoire, movement, pulse and rhythm, through imaginative and engaging activities. Finn believes that your learning journey never finishes and has included a list of the training that she has completed so far below, if you are interested.
Since the birth of her own baby, Crescendo has taken on a new lease of life and Finn is very excited about the expansion of classes in and around Carshalton and Wallington, as well as using music as a tool to connect local mums, dads and carers.
A list of Finn's relevant training and qualifications....
Crescendo employs only the very best music teachers, with a real desire to share the joy of music with all of the children and parents that they meet. Although experience with the early years is preferable, please do not hesitate to get in contact if this is a genuine interest of yours; I am a keen mentor and would rather your passion for music shone through, although some teaching experience is essential. Working with the early years can be intense, but incredibly rewarding. Crescendo is always looking for new teachers so if you feel that you have something to bring to the team, please do get in touch!
