Noteable Music Education was founded in 2006 to create easy to use, fun and creative music resources for music educators.
As a Head of Department for many years, Jenny started writing with the book she always wished she had in her own class: ‘Great Relief Junior’ – an extras/cover book for junior high school classes for when the teacher was away. This led to finding other gaps in the music teacher’s resources with a series of creative composition books ‘Creating New Stuff” and so on.
Jenny aims to make her classes creative and good fun. She uses this approach as a basis for teaching and developing all the skills and knowledge that students require to achieve their goals in music.
