Following a successful career as a primary music specialist, Sue Nicholls became an Advanced Skills Teacher, a post which allowed her to follow her particular passion within music education: the support of the generalist teacher.

Her books to date: Bobby Shaftoe Clap Your hands, Music Express EYFS, The Handy Band and Pat-a-Cake, Make and Shake and Music Express EYFS, published by Harper Collins (A & C Black), demonstrate an accessible and practical approach to delivering EYFS and primary music curricula. She has composed and contributed songs to many other books, including Singing Sherlock 1, 2 & 3 and Voiceworks at Christmas.

Other publications include The Song Stack and Playground Song Book published by Music Education Supplies and her latest song book: Voicelinks was published by Oxford University Press, forming part of the acclaimed ‘Voiceworks’ series.

Sue currently delivers CPD training, conference workshops and seminars nationwide, working as a freelance music education consultant: she also runs the ‘fast-track’ Trinity ‘Certificate for Music Educators’ programme at the University of Northampton. As part of her commitment to supporting music education for trainee teachers, Sue lectures at the University of Leicester, delivering music modules to PGCE and ‘School Direct’ students.
