MUSICAL NOTES

What do you do for PMZ?
I coordinate PMZ’s events throughout the year, including Summer Jam, The Nick Thomas Awards and Tea, Tinsel & Tonsils as well as supporting people in the community to raise funds for the wonderful work PMZ gets to do. I’m also a Music Leader working on sessions such as Sensory Sounds, Sound Track and a 1-2-1 session.

Do you play any instruments?
I’ve played the piano since I was 10. I attempt singing but mostly in the shower. Since working at PMZ I have mastered three chords on the guitar and am brave enough to sing, albeit for the encouragement of others!

What musical instrument would best describe you and why?
As a lover of 80’s music (my childhood!) I’d have to say a good old synthesizer! Axel F anyone??

What has music done for you in your life?
Music has supported me through every possible emotion from the saddest to the happiest times. It has helped to build my confidence and to express myself.

What’s the best bit about working at PMZ?
Seeing the genuine difference PMZ’s work makes to people?s lives. I?m so proud to be a part of the team.

What’s the first record/CD you ever bought?
I remember buying the first Now That’s What I Call Music album on cassette or possibly a Bucks Fizz record!
