Zoe Greenhalgh is an Early Childhood Music Specialist with a wealth of experience of working with babies and young children and their parents, carers and teachers in a wide range of settings. She is a well established workshop leader and is a British Kodály Academy Certificate Course Tutor and Associate Tutor in Early Years and Primary Education at Edge Hill University. In 2014 Zoe researched Early Childhood Music group provision in the UK as part of the Masters Degree in Early Childhood Music at Birmingham City University/ CREC..
Zoe is trained in the internationally respected Kodály approach to music education which focuses on engaging children in enjoyable, practical, carefully structured musical activity relevant to their physical, intellectual and emotional development. This child centred approach is based on teaching, learning and understanding music through the experience of singing, using traditional singing games and rhymes to encourage each individual to experience firsthand the joy of music. Teaching music this way with young children has a huge impact on all aspects of the child’s development and is also great fun. (Further information at: http://kodaly.org.uk/ ).
Professional memberships include Music Educators and Researchers of Young Children (MERYC), The Association for the Professional Development of Early Years Educators (TACTYC), the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) and she is a former Trustee and Vice-chair of the British Kodály Academy. She is an active musician playing Viola in Bolton Symphony Orchestra and singing in a choir.
