Verity Stroud

I have been teaching music in a senior school in Cheadle, Manchester for the past 2 years having trained for my PGCE in Manchester after graduating from UoM with an upper second. I will have completed my ECT qualification by the end of this academic year.
I trained with Stockport Music Service whilst on my placements and so gained the skills and knowledge for teaching instrumentally as well as classroom.
I want to continue teaching but as a peripatetic so that I can pursue performing too, whilst moving back home to Devon.
I achieved grade 8 distinction in piano bassoon and singing. I also play guitar and bass guitar. At university, bassoon was my first study.
During my training I taught beginner flute, clarinet and recorder so would also be able to offer this.
