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.

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.
