Kathryn Teague is a composer, arranger, singer and music education specialist.
Teage encourages a holistic approach to the learning of music and has worked as a peripatetic woodwind and strings teacher, workshop leader, class teacher, music leader, and is currently assistant head teacher and music specialist. As a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE) she guides others in the teaching of music and helps schools devise music curriculums and large-scale projects.
She sings in the ‘London Vocal Project’, one of the UK’s leading contemporary vocal ensembles, specialising in jazz and groove music. The 24-strong choir comprises singers, instrumentalists, composers and music educators.

They are passionate about music education, and have worked with various schools leading workshops in composition and performance that culminated in major productions involving over 1,000 young musicians.
A graduate from the GSMD (Mmus Composition) and IOE (MA Music education), Teage is working on a PhD with UCL Institute of Education, where she will be researching the emerging musical identities of primary school children and how generalists and specialists can support and shape them.
