Little Voices Kew Bridge Team

Hello from Little Voices Kew Bridge 

Jemma Bird (Principal)

Hello! My name is Jemma and I am the Principal of Little Voices in Brentford East and Ealing. I have been teaching for 9 years after receiving a BA Hons in Music and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education. I am a trained classical and musical theatre singer, pianist, producer and songwriter.

Over the past 9 years I have been Head of Year, Head of Music and Head of Vocational Subjects- at one point all at the same time!I am a Specialist Leader of Educationwhich involves training trainee teachers and coaching teachers about how to help pupils develop important life skills through the curriculum.

I believe so much in the importanceof teaching the Arts in education to help develop transferable skills. I have produced and choreographed many shows including Hairsprayand Into the Woods. One of the biggest projects I have accomplished is organising an Arts Week for 15 different schools across England! Performing Arts was such a big part of my childhood. I performed in musicals, sang in choirs and went on tour with a Concert Band around the South of France.

All of the memories and the experience I had growing up has given me the passion to provide other children with the same opportunities.
