Welcome to our new music teacher

Hi everybody, and thank you for having me in the family of BIS Abu Dhabi! My name is Oushu Lin and I am the new music teacher for early years and KS1.I had a great start with the children last week and I hope I can take this opportunity to tell you a bit more about me.

I am originally from Guangzhou, which locates in the Southeast of China. After returning from Germany, I started working at the British School of Guangzhou. Inspired by my experience, I moved to the University of Jyavskyla, Finland to study for my masters degree in Music Therapy. I speak many different languages in addition to English, such as Chinese, German and Finnish.

I had an interest in teaching music from a very young age. I am a qualified Musikgarten instructor and I have offered weekly music lessons for mummies and toddlers in my last school. I had lots of fun with them in all kinds of musical experiences, such as singing, dancing and playing instruments. I have studied music therapy and have experience of working with children who have special education needs, such as autism and anxiety.

If you are interested in learning more about music therapy, come to have a chat! I really look forward to meeting and working with you all here at BIS Abu Dhabi.
