Sarah joined The Music Train team in 2017 having attended classes with her son at the Roaring Meg branch. A professionally trained trumpet player, Sarah studied at Trinity College of Music and also plays violin and piano to grade 7 standard. Music runs very much in her family with her husband, brother and parents in-law all having music degrees! Having taken a step back from the professional world to raise her two young boys, she still performs regularly with Hitchin Brass Band as the band's flugel horn player.

Jessie joined our team in October 2016 and is in her training year with The Music Train under the mentorship of Andrea Lee, MA Education, Early Years. Jessie attended Music Train classes in Letchworth with her son five years ago and and since then has wanted to train as a Music Train teacher. However, this was put on hold when she moved West and then North with family.

Recently the family returned to Hertfordshire and Jessie wasted no time in getting in touch again. Jessie has a very musical background, her mother being a Suzuki music teacher. She learnt to play the piano, violin, flute, trumpet, drums and percussion, which she played as part of the Liverpool Wind Orchestra for a number of years. With a degree in theology, Jessie has undertaken various roles in her local church. She was Music Director for four years, singing and playing piano and most recently worked as Schools and Children's Worker in Yorkshire. Her sunny disposition and excellent people skills make her an extremely valued member of our Teaching Team.

Registration Fee

Families joining our classes for the very first time are invited to try a single session before deciding whether or not they wish to sign up for the rest of the term. If you do wish to join for the term, an additional £6 registration fee is charged for families that have never previously attended. This is only ever charged once per family and future siblings do not need to pay a registration fee. The fee covers the cost of access to our client on-line resources and one child's T-shirt. Additional T-shirts can be purchased for £5.

Cancelled classes

We regret that if classes have to be cancelled due to force majeure such as snow, or on specific medical advice because of the risk posed by swine flu, they cannot be refunded.
