Transcript of White Board Prezumé by Sarah Singlehurst

Overton, Hants

With life long involvement in music - education, participation and performance - I am passionate about ensuring musical education and opportunities are available to all, young and old.

I created and launched a small community singing group in my village called Overton Sings. Following initial success and interest in its first 12 months, it is taking a break to rebrand and investigate new and creative ways to make it more accessible and sustainable in a busy community, where individuals love to sing but have active lives and are unable to commit to weekly sessions.

I have taught pre-school music classes as a Monkey Music Teacher and worked with children at the Primary School on an Olympics themed musical performance.

My 11 year old daughter and 7 year old son have now begun instrumental lessons and my time is happily spent supporting them with their practice...and as taxi to and from rehearsals and performances!
Co-Chaired the Parent Management Committee of Overton Pre-school Playgroup with particular responsibility for HR, policies, recruitment, criminal record checking and day to day issues.

Acted as class representative on Overton Primary School Parent Council.

Work with children at the Primary School as a Parent Helper.
