OHM music review for Little Lupin –
“The highlight of the night is the musical score, which has been devised by cast member Richard Hughes; he provides accompaniment using a variety of instruments, including an accordion, tuba and even two pairs of scissors.
I have also worked as Artist In Residence in a St Paul’s Nursery School and Children’s Centrewhere I offer creative provocation and support, encourage and extend children’s explorations.
I am working on a project looking how creative process and narratives can support aspects of speech and language, with a particular focus with boys, especially those who have English as an adittional language.
