Veronica began facilitating music workshops in 2007. With vast experience as a music artist and a passion for working with young people she fell into the role quite naturally.
She completed a PTLLS qualification and Logic for beginners course at CM Music College in east London. She has also received training to deliver the Bronze and Silver Arts Award.
Having freelanced for organisations including Kingston Music Service, The Philharmonia Orchestra, Bounce Theatre, Eastside Educational Trust, Immediate Theatre and Hoxton Hall she has built up significant experience delivering taster workshops and short courses to young people in schools and youth clubs.
Veronica has had the opportunity to work on some fantastic projects mentoring young people to help develop their own original material and achieve the Arts Award. Some highlights include her role as spoken word facilitator on Symphonize with The Philharmonia Orchestra and a cross-arts theatre piece, which was performed at the Saatchi Gallery in London.
Veronica’s interest in music and performing arts began at an early age, taking regular classes at Sylvia Young and performing in shows with youth theatre groups. After completing a HND in Popular Music and Performing Arts she began to create and record her own material working with music producers and regularly performed at night clubs as a freestyle vocalist and MC.
She was introduced to the style of Hipopera theatre whilst working on projects with The Roundhouse and The London Urban Collective. Both projects gave her the opportunity to write her own lyrics for her character role and perform at The Roundhouse, Pleasance Theatre and Bloomsbury Theatre in London. This lead to her being cast the lead role in a short film and music video that explored gender discrimination and human rights. The film was produced by Company of Angels and was shown to young people in schools across the country.
Veronica continues to create and perform music regularly, working under her alias Leah Vee. She is collaborating with music producers on lots of new material and is set to have a number of releases in the pipeline. Click here to find out more.
Yoga has played a very important role in Veronica's life since her late teens. She instantly adapted to its flow and recognised the benefits it had on her mind and body. Training to become a yoga teacher has had an extremely positive impact on her lifestyle. She practices daily and enjoys sharing its gift with others.
