Recorder for Beginners - Rosalind Coleman

Rosalind Coleman studied at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (now the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) and subsequently taught piano and clarinet in Edinburgh. She continued her studies in London obtaining a Post Graduate Certificate of Education, whilst also developing her flute and recorder skills and singing with the London Symphony Chorus. She then taught Primary Music in London for a number of years which is where she developed a strong interest in Kodaly and Dalcroze musicianship and became aware of the importance of music education in the early years of a child's development – particularly through singing and recorder. On moving to Aberdeen with her husband and young children she taught music in Nursery schools using the Kodaly methodology, amongst others, and built up a private instrumental practice. She currently teaches at Robert Gordon's College where she is a Woodwind Instructor and is delighted to be teaching at NESMS, introducing young children to the world of music.
