Edinburgh Young Musicians (EYM) currently finds itself in the unusual position of having all its Saturday morning Musical Play classes taken by a mother & daughter team.
Laura Cross, who spends most of the rest of the week as a P2 class teacher at Buckstone Primary School, has been working for EYM since 2001, teaching the P1 Musical Play classes as well as the junior section of Choir & some Musical Foundations and Chamber Music classes. She first discovered EYM when she brought her daughter Mairi to its pre-school Musical Play classes back in 1998. Fast-forward 21 years and Mairi herself is now teaching those very same pre-school Musical Play classes.
Between times, Mairi worked her way up through EYM as a pupil and subsequently as an assistant, imbibing her mother’s gently encouraging & supportive approach to teaching young children as she developed an interest in early years education and theatre as well as music.
EYM caters for youngsters from their final pre-school year up to 18-year-olds and currently has 3 places available for P1 children & 7 for pre-school children to join classes in January 2020.
