Meet the faces behind
Pevan & Sarah!
“It’s a teachers job to understand that every child learns differently – ‘if they can’t learn the way we teach, we teach the way they learn’.
In my classroom, I noticed that the kids were really reacting to the music I would play. This allowed me to engage with some kids I had previously struggled to connect with.
Instead of saying my ‘go to’ teacher lines like ‘it’s okay to make mistakes’, I began to sing them to the kids. The result was remarkable. I was reaching my students on a whole new level.”
“Music is so accessible for everybody – you find music in every culture around the world. The incidental learning that goes along with music is so powerful!
There is music for everyone, it’s non-discriminative, it will find you. It’s an art form and it takes on its own life and people are drawn to it.
It doesn’t matter about the style or the genre, it’s going to talk to someone. All we want is for our music to reach that one person who really needs to hear it. That’s who we’re writing it for.”
... and Pevan!
“Sarah and I had been friends for years, so when she mentioned she wanted to write music to help her students to learn, I jumped at the opportunity to collaborate with her.
Now, I’m the first to admit, I haven’t got the best singing voice in the jungle, but what I lack in tone and pitch, I more than make up for with my awesome dance moves, expressive rap skills and all round cuddliness.
My favourite part of this whole project has been meeting so many little ones who all love our music. I have the best job in the world!”
