Klio is passionate about music education. Specialising in the early years she has
worked extensively as an early years project leader for Trinity Laban's outreach
program ‘Raising the Roof’ , training BMus students as well as planning and
delivering early years music workshops in museums, schools and children's
centres all around Greenwich and Lewisham.
She has also developed the very successful early years programme at
Blackheath Conservatoire and is currently leading its early years team providing
regular training and continuous CPD , while constantly updating and evaluating
the programme. Along with singer and Head of Music Mairead Sheerin and
pianist Grace Mo and as part of the Conservatoire’s family performance
programme they have recently developed and piloted two creative projects, ‘The
Nutcracker’ and ‘Aesop’s Fables: The Tortoise Journey’. Featuring flute, piano
and narration their aim is to introduce classical music to young audiences
through myths and stories. Both projects received excellent responses and are
now featuring regularly at the Conservatoire’s family concert series.
