MA (Cambridge), MA (Durham), PGCE (Cambridge), Dalcroze Professional Certificate
Alison grew up in West Yorkshire, and studied music at St John’s College, Cambridge and Durham University. Whilst working as a cello and piano teacher, Alison was struck by the creativity and intuitiveness of the Dalcroze approach to music teaching, which explores music through movement, singing and improvisation. This led her to study for the Dalcroze Professional Certificate. Alison is currently studying for an advanced qualification in Dalcroze Eurhythmics, the Dalcroze Licence.
Alison enjoys working with young people of all ages. She has taught Dalcroze Eurhythmics at YYM since 2010, initially on the Leeds programme, and now at the Hull centre. She works with primary school teachers for the Voices Foundation, and has previously taught in various settings for Opera North. Alison’s latest musical adventure is as music teacher for Coram House, the Junior school at Ackworth School, Pontefract.
