Sophie Whisker

Sophie Whisker had her first foray into music making at Musical Infant classes in North West London at the age of 2 & has never looked back. Sophie loved being a part of her local music school & performing regularly at the Royal Albert Hall as well as going on orchestral tours across Europe. She studied piano & flute at Junior Guildhall whilst studying for her A levels & then completed her music degree at the University of Surrey, specialising in piano performance.
Sophie will be leading Little Notes sessions on piano/keyboard, guitar & flute. Sophie has taught the piano & flute privately for 16 years to both adults & children. She is also a qualified Music Therapist, & has a passion for connecting & communicating with others through music. She especially enjoys collaborative music making; there is a magic in playing with others that just can’t be experienced when you’re on your own. Sophie is a mum of three & this has only reinforced her desire to see children given the opportunity to experience & fall in love with live music as she did during her own early years.
