Gillian Corrigan

Baby & Pre-school Music Teacher and Co-ordinator

I have a passion for sharing music with others having been brought up in a musical home where I learnt the violin, piano and oboe.  I've played in lots of orchestras and musical ensembles and have always enjoyed playing with others.  Although I actually have a Law degree this has enhanced my appreciation and understanding of those around me.  Since moving to Abingdon 13 years ago I have felt so at home in the musical environment here where I enjoy working with young children to impart a lifelong love of music. I believe passionately that music really does have the power to express feelings and emotions where words fail.  Music can draw communities together and I am privileged to have the opportunity to be part of these young children's - and their parents'/carers' - lives.
