The job opportunity of a lifetime...
Two days after her final performance at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Becky found herself on the Caribbean island of Montserrat. Why? Sir George Martin and his charity, the Montserrat Foundation UK, wanted a Guildhall graduate to spend a year developing musical opportunities for the youth of the island. This one year position quickly turned into two as Becky fell in love with the island and its people. During her time on Montserrat, Becky devised both community and school-based projects and founded the Montserrat National Youth Choir. Her two years on the island had a great impact on the musician and person she is today.
Becky delivered a variety of different community-based music programmes ranging from devising new musical theatre to learning the ukulele.
Becky founded the 80-strong National Youth Choir of Montserrat ranging in age from 7-30 years. Producing sell-out performances, this choir continues to go from strength to strength.
Becky delivered workshops and music curriculum across the island's nursery, primary and secondary schools.
