Welcome to the online home of Anna Himsworth, a piano teacher, Colourstrings registered music teacher and artist based in Glasgow.
Thank you for visiting my online home. To register for classes or to arrange a piano lesson you will find information on the contact page. I look forward to hearing from you.
I love music whether listening, playing, composing, teaching or recording. Music is to be enjoyed by all and I believe everybody is included. Creating a positive environment where people of all ages can come and learn about music is my passion.
I have led and been involved with music projects in various community settings; music in nursery and primary schools in the form of singing and music workshops; in secondary schools in the form of both sound art and electroacoustic music projects. I have also led drumming workshops, community music workshops, music in a church setting and composing for the Glasgow Westend festival and facilitated singing workshops in nursing homes and a hospital. I studied MA Music at Glasgow University and went on to focus on music for early years and piano teaching.
Music Box, Colourstrings Kindergarten was established over 12 years ago in Langside Parish Church in Glasgow Southside and since Spring 2008 I have had the delight and privilege to direct it. Music Box is a very friendly kindergarten, with over 70 babies and preschool children and a primary one class who love coming to my classes weekly.
What people are saying...
"I love Anna’s music class she is always so cheerful and understanding of each individuals needs."
"I was so impressed at how cleverly the foundation had been laid. My daughter learnt to play all the old familiar tunes on violin and has never looked back."
"Anna Himsworth creates a relaxed and gentle environment to introduce young children to music. I would thoroughly recommend it."

"Our children have always enjoyed attending Music Box and are always encouraged to express themselves freely."
