Monkey NoisesI have been involved in running workshops in the community and in schools for 15 years, including doing a traineeship at The Sage Gateshead in 2002.

I have a long experience of running workshops in music technology, improvising, sound art, film, animation, radio/podcasting, sound design, graphic design and web based work, working with ages 5 to 90 across communities in the UK. I have worked in schools, with community groups, PRU’s and within companies, including project managing several big projects.

Companies I have worked for have included BBC, Sound & Music, The Sage Gateshead, Lanternhouse International, The Baltic, Barrow Borough Council, Heron Corn Mill & Creative Futures Cumbria.

I can run fun activities for school groups, youth groups, adults, older people and teacher/leader inset sessions and have a passion for helping people to express themselves through technology in a relaxed and safe environment. I have long experience of working with hard to reach groups and have mentored many emerging workshop leaders.
