Ali Rycroft BA Oxon MA UEL [Profile]

Ali has been teaching music to young children since 2010 through Colourstrings, a form of music education created in Finland by Geza Szilvay which follows the principles of the Hungarian composer and music educator Zoltán Kodály. Wonderful piano lessons as a teenager with Joyce Rathbone turned her musical world inside out and inspired her passion for music and teaching. Ali discovered Colourstrings when she took her children to classes in London and found in it a musical enchantment she would have loved as a young child. Ali holds degrees from the University of Oxford and the University of East London and is currently training in Dalcroze Eurythmics.
