LOUIS LEESON

GUITARIST /SINGER

I am a musician who was born and grew up in LB Newham with an MA (distinction, 2018) in Music Composition and Ba Hons (1st class, 2013) in Popular Music & Recording from University of Salford. Prior to my university studies I gained a Grade 8 with distinction (Rock School) for electric guitar at the first grade exam I attempted. 
I believe that every child should be offered the chance to learn an instrument, sing or participate in music. This is not only to develop skills that will take with them though life, but also to promote wellbeing, encourage collaboration and bring communities together.

RONJA SOJORNEN

Music Teacher /Guitarist

I love music and children so working in entertaining and teaching music and movement to kids would be a perfect combination. I have gone through drama school education in which movement, choreography, music and facilitation were a big part and through this experience I’ve found that I really enjoy and can excel in this kind of work 

I have taught gymnastics: easy and safe jumps onto a padded surface, making sure everyone waits for their turn and knows how the exercise is done safely and while having fun. I have taught a korean song to a classroom of 20, this was done by sitting on the ground in an organised manner and going through the song line by line. I have also run numerous sports warm-up exercises for a variety of ages and class-sizes.
