Music Teacher

Santa Strupka gained her Popular Music degree at the University of Essex, and during her three-year course chose teaching music as one of her special paths. She particularly enjoyed teaching younger children so she completed her qualifications by following a school-centred initial teacher training programme in Primary Education. 

I gained a degree in Popular Music at the University of Essex, and during my three-year course I chose teaching music as one of my special paths. I particularly enjoyed teaching younger children, so  went on to complete my qualifications by following a school-centred initial teacher training programme in Primary Education. 

Music has always been important in my life and my journey started at the age of 5. My music teacher noticed my passion for singing and encouraged me to participate in a range of local and national singing competitions. This led to several years of performing on the stage. I also learned to play the violin and while still young, I performed playing it in small ensembles. In addition, I sang in big choirs, and in pop/rock bands where I also played the piano.

My aim as a teacher has always been to teach and inspire children by offering effective and enjoyable lessons in music and all other subjects. I love teaching music because, apart from providing the fantastic opportunity of learning how to play a musical instrument, it allows children to gain confidence in performing and learning about different styles of music. I believe it is crucial to build each student’s confidence so that he or she develops an irresistible urge to join in and develop the curiosity to find out more about music. Above all I think it is very important to allow students to behave like the musicians they feel they are naturally.

I consider myself a creative person. This is why I love designing, producing and composing. In my free time I enjoy watching musicals, reading, making different crafts and spending time at the beach.
