Mrs Shirley Court – Music Teacher

Teaching career

I taught for 12 years as a Primary School Teacher in two schools in Nottinghamshire. I then became the Vocal and Choral Specialist for Leicestershire and was appointed as the conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra’s Junior and Senior Choruses . I became the Primary Music Advisor for Leicestershire Arts Service. I moved back to Cheshire 14 years ago and worked for the Cheshire Music Service which is how I first came to work at Lower Peover School. Seven Years ago I became the Director of the Halle Children’s Choir.

Why I teach?

I love working with children of all ages and abilities. I try to motivate and engage children in singing to unlock and encourage any musical talent. I have seen on numerous occasions how being involved in music can change and influence many lives. I love to hear children singing really well and enjoying themselves. (I would be far too noisy and laugh far too loudly to work in an office environment anyway !!)
