Andrea Lee

07944 759007


Andrea set up pre-school music classes from her home back in 1995 when her own children were very young. Starting with just two small classes a week, it soon became apparent that her unique style of teaching had hit the spot, for the organisation quickly moved out of the home and rapidly grew. Andrea has an MA in Education (Early Years) and also two PGCEs specialising in Early Childhood Music (one specifically linked to the Kodaly approach). Using the best current practice and drawing from a variety of musical educational approaches, Andrea has developed our current syllabus and has personally trained each of our Music Train teachers.

As well as leading the company, Andrea teaches her own thriving classes in Letchworth and Gt Ashby. Clients (primary teachers themselves) have commented that Andrea "understands children's attention spans. Every session is hands on and interactive." "She makes classes multi sensory, fun and relaxed for everyone." Another parent recently wrote, "She makes the class so much fun, and without any effort my boys have gained fantastic music ability which is helping them in so many ways." Andrea is passionate that every child should be given the opportunity to develop their innate musicality to its fullest potential and a number of her pupils, taught over the past twenty years, have gone on to perform in West End shows and start careers in music.

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, they cannot be refunded.
