Helen Teasdale, BA (hons)
Director and Music Makers session leader, Helen studied music at the City of Leeds College of Music and the University College of St Martin’s, Lancaster where she obtained a BA Hons degree in Performing Arts specialising in singing.
Upon graduating Helen joined the professional show team at Center Parcs, Penrith, as a vocalist performing in many styles from musical theatre to pantomime – oh yes she did! She has performed as a soloist at many leading venues across the country with the MAYC Orchestra and Singers, including the Royal Albert Hall, London, as well as appearing as a soloist on BBC Songs of Praise and has recorded two CD’s.
Helen is singing teacher at Stagecoach Performing Arts in Carlisle teaching 7-18 year olds, assistant choir leader of The Lakes Choir and Music Co-ordinator at Blennerhasset Primary School in West Cumbria where she teaches 3-11 year olds.
Helen is married to husband, Andy, and has two children.
Through my own children, I believe music and their love of singing has helped develop their speech, memory and coordination, providing them with a natural sense of rhythm and confidence to dance. I hope you will find that Music Makers provides an enjoyable and fun experience for you and your family, and that you may see your child learn and grow, as I have mine, through the magic of music.
