Klio is passionate about music education. Specialising in the early years she has worked extensively as an early years project leader for Trinity Laban's outreach program ‘Raising the Roof’ , training BMus students as well as planning and delivering early years music workshops in museums, schools and children's centres all around Greenwich and Lewisham. She has also developed the very successful early years programme at Blackheath Conservatoire and is currently leading its early years team providing regular training and continuous CPD , while constantly updating and evaluating the programme. Along with singer and Head of Music Mairead Sheerin and pianist Grace Mo and as part of the Conservatoire’s family performance programme they have recently developed and piloted two creative projects, ‘The Nutcracker’ and ‘Aesop’s Fables: The Tortoise Journey’. Featuring flute, piano and narration their aim is to introduce classical music to young audiences through myths and stories. Both projects received excellent responses and are now featuring regularly at the Conservatoire’s family concert series. Her last musical adventure involving young audiences is with Classical Music Rocks, a non-profit community based organisation in West Norfolk which brings live classical music into school settings.
