Finding support when you’re a music teacher can be hard work. Especially when your interests are pretty niche, like with Kodály. I know, I’ve been there!

As a music teacher I often felt very isolated. I moved between schools and found it difficult to build supportive friendships with other members of staff.

That’s why Doremi Connect was born!

Imagine being surrounded by like-minded people, all working together. A virtual musical staffroomThat support can be the difference between success and failure. As can having access to experienced Kodály experts, to eliminate the guesswork.

So don’t feel overwhelmed! Inside the warm and friendly Doremi community, Helen and the gang are waiting to make you feel more supported and confident in your teaching.
