Profile - Joanne Pue
My name is Jo and I am a local musician, singer and performer from the Wirral. I am a trained violinist and started learning aged 9. I also play guitar and other instruments and I sing too. I have a passion for music and enjoy music ranging from Irish, folk, country and popular. I have performed locally at the Gladstone Theater, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, The Palm House, the Liverpool Cavern, The Brindley Runcorn.
I have 2 small children aged 5 and 6 years. There is a definite need for more music and creativity in Early Years. I have seen first-hand the benefits that it can bring to children and families.
In 2009 I set up my own company Melody Makers with the aim to embed music in the everyday environment of the early years setting and help children and parents to love music.
Since 2009 Melody Makers has provided music workshops for 0 – 5 year olds and their families at Sure Start Children centres, private nurseries and child minder settings across the Wirral, as well as Special needs schools and after school clubs for parents and children.
Melody Makers takes part in Events such as:
- Liverpool Sense of Sound "Festival of A Cappella
- National Child minder Association Week
- National Family week
- Liverpool Food and Drink Festival
