Welcome to Music Speaks! I’m Naomi. I’m a musician, teacher and parent with a special interest in the benefits of singing for our mental health. I provide Singing for Wellbeing sessions and friendly music tuition to pupils of all ages and abilities. I am based in Exmouth, Devon where I live with my husband and our two children.
Having been a musician for most of my life, in 2015 I embarked on my journey to spread awareness of the idea that “music speaks”. In doing so, I found a number of supporters who had experienced the benefits of singing for mental health. Inspired and encouraged, I began leading Singing for Wellbeing sessions in my local community and further afield.
If you would like to take a look at some examples of my Singing for Wellbeing sessions, please take a look at the Music Speaks YouTube channel. Here you will find singing sessions you can join in with at home! These were developed between April and July 2020 to aid Singing for Wellbeing at home during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Alongside Singing for Wellbeing I teach violin, piano, guitar and singing to pupils of all ages and abilities. Learning a new skill such as playing a musical instrument is a wonderful way to build confidence for children and adults alike!
