Medley Music Provision so far ...

It has been a delight to work in the three classes in Schools every morning between 9:00 am and 12 Noon providing Vocal, Music National Curriculum and whole class keyboard to the children.

The progression and learning the children have made has been inspirational.

The testimonials highlight the impact this has had for the children.  This may be something you would like to consider for next year.

Medley Music fully support your preferred provision and will continue to offer one hour and two hour lessons in the morning.

For Schools preferring a two hour session for classes, where possible, this fits nicely into the afternoon time scales.

Su Ancliffe

Music Tutor

Su began playing keyboard instruments at an early age – getting her first reed organ at around 5 years old. Her first music lessons were on recorder at school, which started her off reading music. She began piano lessons aged 10, later adding guitar, oboe and flute and continued with these through to university, gaining a BA (Hons) in Music with Education Studies.
Su began teaching electronic organ to groups in 1995 and also piano and flute one-to-one and in small groups. She joined the keyboard project in its inception in 2007 and, as well as teaching, has been involved in writing and recording for the courses. She believes she has the best job in the world!
Su played oboe in the Stockport Schools Wind Band and has continued to play with Werneth Concert Band since 1995. She also plays bass in the swing band and conducts a community ladies choir.
Su feels that the opportunities she had to learn and participate in music at school played a huge part in both her choice of career and her love of making music.
Su enjoys many styles of music, but has a particular passion for 80s pop and electronica and, of course, ABBA.
