I am a British trained music teacher and have been living in Cairo for over twenty years. Before coming to Cairo, I taught music in schools in the UK. While working in the UK, at various times, I taught music at key stage 2, key stage 3 and up to and including GCSE ‘O’ and ‘A’ level. From 1996 – 2017 I was head of key stage 2 music and American Elementary music at El Alsson British and American International School in Cairo. During this time I was fully involved in many productions and trained many choirs and singers for performances of all kinds.
During the academic year 2017 – 2018 I was head of key stage 2 music at Gulf English School in Doha, Qatar. I found this post to be rewarding and stimulating and I participated in a number of school events requiring music. However, during this year, I came to believe that my heart belonged in Egypt which I have come to see as home and to which I have now returned.
I am currently seeking work as a music teacher in Egypt, preferably either Cairo or Alexandria.
