A Cambridge graduate and professional musician from Chorleywood is hoping to share her passion for music with children.
Marianne Ryall was born to two very musical parents and grew up in Chorleywood. After attending St Clement Danes School, she went on to read music at Cambridge and graduated last year.
At Cambridge, Marianne studied the psychology of music and learned that music is proven to be instrumental in social bonding and cohesion.
This, coupled with her love for children, is the reason why she has set up Mini Mozart sessions at Christ Church, which allow children and their parents to sing along to Marianne playing different instruments.
Proficient in piano, bassoon, saxophone, clarinet and the oboe, Marianne is keen for little ones to get up and close to a variety of orchestral instruments.
She said: “It is well known among musicians that if you grow up in London, you have much more of advantage when it comes to music, so it’s important to break out of the M45 bubble. I feel it’s especially important in a world where the arts are being so ignored.”
