Andrea Lee

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 (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-five years, have gone on to perform in West End shows and start careers in music.
