About the trainer:

Joy Smith

"I think of myself as a teacher, first and foremost, who is fascinated by the discipline/art of teaching. I switched from teaching science and maths to music over 25 years ago, completing my CT ABRSM in 1999 and teaching with the Wiltshire Music Service from 2004-2014 (Primary, secondary, individual lessons, paired lessons, wider opportunities on keyboard and recorder).

I completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Supporting Learners with SpLD/Dyslexia at Bath Spa University in 2012 and gained Associate Membership of the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA) in 2013. I have also been a member of the British Dyslexia Association Music Committee since 2014.

I’ve also completed some Dalcroze training (Foundation and Intermediate Levels).

Currently I teach privately and part-time in my home studio. My pupils range in age from 6-81 years and I teach piano, keyboard, music theory, GCSE and A’level support and some literacy support."
