It wasn’t until I was diagnosed with being dyslexic as an adult that I began to understand what I had been fighting against all the time I had been at school. It was at music college that I was shown solutions to my problems, and ways to overcome difficulties when learning in an environment where you have to be a self motivated learner. It was later in the classroom as a teacher that I realised I had the opportunity to help others overcome these same challenges. When I found out about the Creative Mentors Foundation, I realised that working for them would give me the opportunity to focus on my learning about dyslexia and dyspraxia but also to improve my skills as a music educator.
