About Chris Braiden

I am one of the founding partners in a small company named World of Music Education Limited. We work with individuals and groups to provide musical tuition in vocal and instrumental disciplines. I studied to degree level and achieved BA(Hons) in Humanities with Music. I have been teaching piano since 2004 and started working as a Musical Director in 2009 with the Leigh Park Community Singers. I undertook MD training with the Association of British Choral Directors in 2010 which has stood me in good stead when working with choirs. I worked with LPCS until December 2014 when I took over as Musical Director with Cosham Community Choir.
