I'm Rachel Turner, and I run the Rhythm Time franchise
in the Leamington Spa, Warwick, Kenilworth, and Stratford-upon-Avon
I first experienced Rhythm Time as a mum at classes with my son in 2010.
We attended baby class, then I must add I tried other classes in the area. But soon came back to Rhythm Time with my daughter and we attended toddler and pre school classes in the same morning. My daughter still attends pre school classes which she absolutely loves and could run herself!
I was working as a waste management consultant in Birmingham in a quiet office with engineers and lots of reports. I ws the noisiest person in the office and knew I wasn't in my ideal career.
When the opportunity to become a Rhythm Time assistant became available I jumped at the chance, it is such a joyful job and no more long commute.
Then I trained as a teacher and knew I could lead the classes with my enthusiasm and musical background.
My father often sang and I played the piano and trumpet, I will bring the trumpet to class one day! I also attended dance lessons for most of my childhood up to the age of 15.
When Sue was hoping to retire, its seemed natural for me to take over the franchise, I get to teach the lessons which I love and have a fantastic database and system to keep me occupied.
I simply love teaching music. The Rhythm Time classes are
particularly rewarding as you can see the babies and children
quickly developing musical skills, and really enjoying
participating in the Rhythm Time musical experience.
There are so many benefits for the children as they join in
making music in a structured but fun environment.
We have such a joyful time, we never know what the children are going to say and we are often laughing in class with their funny ways as they explore the music and instruments.
I hope you will want to join in the Rhythm Time experience, and
give your children the most brilliant musical start in life.
