My name is Shana Elliott, and I am 37 years old. I have been teaching singing as a peri teacher, and whole class teacher for the past 10 years independently and for Thurrock Music Services. I pride myself in giving my full focus and energy to every opportunity that is offered me, and am passionate and dedicated to my teaching work. Teaching is my passion, and nothing gives me more pleasure than working with young people who are the 'music of tomorrow'. I am passionate about encouraging performance opportunities for young people, and have vast knowledge in organising events for performers. I am enthusiastic and enjoy inspiring young singers, within my teaching role, and hope to always encourage and increase the confidence of many young singers. EXPERIENCE I have been teaching for Thurrock Music Services for the past 10 years, and find it the most rewarding of all of my singing ventures. To teach is to pass on your knowledge and to watch it bloom in others, and this is something that makes me passionate about what I do. I have vast experience in teaching young students of all ages (reception to sixth form , and beyond!).
