Andrew Linham runs his own specialist music education course across Havering. He has been Head of Music in Goodrington School since September 2012 and within this role received an ‘Outstanding’ from Ofsted. He has also been musician in residence at Ardleigh Green Junior School since 2013. Andrew has been working with the
Royal Ballet School on education projects since 2016 and with the Queens Theatre Hornchurch since 2012.

Andrew is a Mentor for the
Havering Academy of Leadership.

Below is a video of his Advert Creation project run at Ardleigh Green Junior School in Spring 2016.

In 2011 Andrew created
Lyricland as a music education programme for primary schools engaging children in the fundamentals of how music works through singing. It has since been employed across several primary schools and continues to grow as a music resource. It has been used in both the public and private sectors and has received critical acclaim, particularly from teaching schools. Andrew also works for Havering Music School running choirs and large ensembles and heads up the Jazz Provision for the Saturday School. With Havering Music School and the National Youth Jazz Orchestra Andrew recently premiered his new large scale orchestral work ‘Col-Large’, written to celebrate community music making and introducing jazz music to the students of three London boroughs.

Andrew has also successfully run Songwriting Courses in 2011-2013 made available as part of the Havering MyTime initiative and has also periodically worked with East Coast Music delivering summer ‘Improvisation in Music’ Courses.

He is also available to teach privately saxophone, clarinet, piano, ABRSM Theory and Jazz Theory. Andrew welcomes pupils of all ages and abilities. Currently his private students have a pass rate of 100% for ABRSM examinations, with almost all students receiving merits or distinctions.
