Play-based music education for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers as well as vacation day drop-in programs and summer camps for young elementary school students.
Hi everyone! I’m Debbie, born and bred in Derry City where I continue to teach today. My family and I reside in Moville, Donegal. My passion for music goes back to my youth and continues to this day in my professional life as a Foundation Stage primary school educator. Recreationally I’m a MD for youth and adult choirs. I trained in violin and voice and a graduate from St. Mary's Teacher Training College, Belfast. Later I graduated from University of Birmingham with a Post Graduate diploma in Special Education: Hearing Impairment with a solid 22 years of hands on teaching experience.
I truly believe that music is a positive factor to help children with self esteem, social, communication and language skills. Music aids in the improved well being overall with children and people of all ages. Music is non-discriminatory, it crosses boundaries and is inclusive to all! I believe that Wee-Arts is a wonderful program that speaks to all and will expose children in a fun and light-hearted way to the foundations of music in a play-based creative way.
I’m so excited to be bringing this interactive, child centered programme to you and your little ones in Derry and Donegal . I’m mostly looking forward to share my love of music with all of you when we begin our musical journey at Wee Arts.
