Julia also teaches classes for younger children, both in nursery settings and in groups involving their parents and guardians, incorporating dancing, singing, rhythm and rhyme. Her classes use props and stories to stimulate children’s imaginations and take them on fantastic journeys with a fabulous soundtrack. In 2016 Julia was a recipient of the Starcatchers Artist Bursary and took part in the Creative Skills Programme, shadowing artists who specialise in music, drama, dance and visual art activities for early years.
“Just to let you know how much the children in P1/2 and myself enjoyed your visit to our school. The whole thing was so well thought out and just flowed so smoothly from beginning to end giving the children an opportunity to hear different music, express themselves through movement – which they love to do, encouraged them to think and very importantly listen to everything. It was truly magical… Thank you so much for spending time with us and giving us a truly wonderful experience.”
Morag Fowler, Teacher at North Kessock Primary School
