About Janey

I have a passion for music. If I’m not teaching music, I’m either singing, playing the cello or listening to music.

Maxwell Mini Music started in July 2014 and in that time has built a loyal following from local families, mainly in the Beckenham area. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the growth and development of many children who joined as new-born babes and are now confident walkers who enjoy their weekly music class with their friends.

In addition to fifteen years experience of teaching music and the whole curriculum in primary schools, in 2013 I started running a schools’ music festival for the Westerham area and this event has become popular and successful.

This experience together with my BA(Hons), MA(Mus) and PGCE have enabled me to become a Member of The Incorporated Society of Musicians (a professional body for UK musicians).

In April 2016 I took over leading the Junior Choir at St. George’s Church, Beckenham and this provides an extra opportunity for music making with children in the Beckenham area. In addition to this I have recently taken on the role as music teacher in a local nursery school.

I’m currently an active member of three choirs: the widely acclaimed London Philharmonic Choir and the choir of St George’s Church, Beckenham and the Bromley Philharmonic Choir.  2016 highlights included singing at the Royal Festival Hall, the Royal Albert Hall (including the BBC Proms), Ripon Cathedral and the Palais de Beaux-Arts in Brussels. 2017 events include a Karl Jenkins recording, singing in the BBC Proms and Ely and Portsmouth cathedrals.

My hobbies include attending music concerts, especially the BBC Proms and LPO concerts, walking and reading.
