Baby & Pre-school Music Teachers

Gillian Corrigan

Baby & Pre-school Music Teacher and Co-ordinator

As well as co-ordinating our Baby & Pre-school Music programme, Gillian teaches classes on Mondays and Thursdays.

“I have a passion for sharing music with others having been brought up in a musical home where I learnt the violin, piano and oboe.  I’ve played in lots of orchestras and musical ensembles and have always enjoyed playing with others.  I have been teaching with Abingdon Music Centre since 2006 and I really enjoy working with young children to impart a lifelong love of music. I believe passionately that music really does have the power to express feelings and emotions where words fail.  Music can draw communities together and I am privileged to have the opportunity to be part of these young children’s – and their parents’/carers’ – lives.”
