We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Julia O’Connor, as our peripatetic piano and singing teacher. Julia will begin her journey with us in the summer term, teaching one-to-one lessons with children of all ages and abilities to boost the huge musical success at Heywood Prep.
Julia received a music degree from the University of York and has studied with the English National Opera.
Julia also brings with her a wealth of experience including singing extensively on the stage in operas, choirs and smaller ensembles. As a Grade 8 pianist and accompanist, Julia has taught from beginner level to Diploma with a 100% pass success rate.
Music has been a passion for Julia since she was a young child, and as a mother of 3 young children has a strong understanding of what young children need in order to reach their full potential and believes in the importance of developing correct technique from a young age.
Peripatetic music lessons are a fantastic opportunity to learn skills for life and to gain qualifications along the way; we are excited to see Julia apply her passion and enthusiasm to this important provision.
