What have you taught in the classroom/party /playgroup or holiday club ?

I've taught singing and music for The Popstar Academy (technique and teaching the musicality/structure of the songs we learnt) and at Perform I taught singing, dancing and acting as well as leading a number of games with them

I love to teach French because I really enjoy  being surrounded by “les petits choux” They are really adorable at this young age and I believe that this is the time when they discover the world and they have  amazing abilities to learn and absorb a lot of new information Equally as a French native and as young child, I was discovering different way of teaching, through repetition but in a fun way which is very much representative of Jumping Beans.

NICOLAS de Chastenay 


I teach guitar lessons (one to one and groups) to students from 3 to 40 and English tutoring to French children , I have been giving French tutoring to English children. Music is an important part of how I like to teach, we usually translate songs and sing them together, at this age it is about discovery rather than technical matters and I think that speaking should be the main focus. I find working with children very interesting as it is a challenge to keep them focused and keep the experience enjoyable.

I have been working as a self-employed musician with for almost 3 years, playing music in Spanish for children at nurseries.
