Meet Our Principal Jo

 

I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself and welcome you to Little Voices.

My name is Jo and I am the Principal of Little Voices Buckingham.

I have always had a passion for theatre and the arts, encouraged mostly by my mum who trained as an actress and then became a Head of Performing Arts in a secondary school in Buckinghamshire, as well as running her own theatre company.  I took part in many productions when I was younger and then went on to complete a degree in Theatre at Lancaster University.

Since then, I have toured with Theatre In Education companies, been involved in many further productions, including outdoor Shakespeare Festivals and have directed a number of youth productions. I have also been a drama tutor for Little Voices Hertfordshire West for the last 2 and a half years.

Throughout my career I have worked in many schools and youth clubs with children ages 4-16 and am extremely passionate about developing self confidence and self esteem in young people.  This has always been my main focus, it just so happens I think Drama and Singing are amazing ways to accomplish this.

 

I look forward to the possibility of working with you and your child, watching them grow and celebrating their achievements.
