Vicki's passion is the ‘joy of children’. Playing, interacting, listening and being involved in their lust for life. To this end she has been lucky to have a long career involving doing what she loves, thinking of creative, fun ways to teach. She believes music is integral to all learning and that it is never too early to begin to experience its unique wonderful vibe to life.
