Hello, my name is Laura and I love running Rhythm Time Wharfedale, Craven and Keighley! I took my twins to Rhythm Time in Skipton for two years before I took over in 2017. They absolutely loved the classes and are both now very excited that Ratatat (our friendly listening bunny) lives with us!
Before Rhythm Time I worked as a freelance professional recorder player (yes, you did read that right!) since graduating from The Royal College of Music in London. I had four fantastic years studying there and had been making my living from teaching recorder to all ages and abilities, performing with chamber groups and occasionally orchestras, and even ending up as editor of The Recorder Magazine!
I love singing with my two little ones and can't wait to share the wonders of music and singing with other families through Rhythm Time. I might even have to sneak a recorder or two into classes occasionally!
When I'm not singing around the house or playing my recorders you might see me hanging off a rope somewhere (or more likely holding a rope for my husband) at Malham Cove or Kilnsey crag in the Yorkshire dales. I love photography, climbing, skiing, going to the opera and my sewing machine - when I get the time!
