Martina holds a degree in education and has a long-standing background as a teacher in primary education. She tours her lovingly developed musical language-learning programme worldwide with great success.
Martina has always believed that music is an excellent vehicle for language learning, as language in itself is music with its own rhythm and intonation. Inspired by the young MFL learners themselves, she soon discovered that the tunes and rhymes she invented for the language lesson worked. They helped the children memorise new vocabulary and phrases as well as being fun to sing and act out. “Can we sing this song again?”
The children not only sang her songs in the classroom and assembly, but also in the playground and at home. No more encouragement was needed for Martina to continue writing more and more catchy tunes and lyrics, covering almost every primary curriculum topic and most recently her climate change songs.
Martina has worked with the Goethe-Institut London, the Hueber-Verlag and 4learning2gether.eu who have created beautiful song books and teaching packages based on her songs. Martina tours her songs in the UK and all over Europe. She also offers her language learning programme for French and English as a foreign language.
