"I really enjoyed the strategy of using body percussion during the EARCOS 2019 conference. It was my first time to experience face-to-face on how we can improvise using our body as a percussive instrument. Thank you for opening my eyes on improvisation. Hope to see you and learn more from you soon."

Leigh Wolmarans - Head Teacher, England
"Victoria has been coming into our Montessori School for two years, twice a week and over this time she has managed to build a full repertoire of songs including traditional nursery rhymes and songs and poetry from around the world. Victoria's musicality has the ability to hold the child's attention and she shares her music in a calm, loving, respectful and understanding way. We thoroughly recommend her and the children would do so too!"
Julie Marriott - Former Head Teacher Maidford Montessori
"During our community fun day, Victoria was able to engage with all age groups and encourage full participation by all those present, including the parents. We would highly recommend!"

Joya Brahmachari - Head of Drama, England
"Mrs Leith recognizes and unearths, with enthusiasm and delight, the creative genius in each child with whom she works, and shares generously with others those strategies and tools. More importantly, she instills the love of music in a child, and a desire to explore and create one’s own work. My daughter has been very fortunate to have had Mrs. Leith as her teacher for the first couple of years of her schooling, and right now she eats, sleeps and breathes music!
I am excited to follow Mrs. Leith on LittleSong as we continue to benefit from her work.
Thank you “Ms Vicky” and never stop your efforts!
Parent at Teda Global Academy
