Principal - Lauren Casey

Lauren trained at BIMM and has a BA Hons degree in Professional Musicianship with Vocals. Training at BIMM, gave Lauren a real insight of the expectation in the music industry. She trained with many experts and this gave her the courage to travel extensively internationally as a professional musician. She has great knowledge and experience of what it takes to be a full time performer.
As a band leader, Lauren became her own agent and was successful in gaining work from Carnival Corporation and PLC, P&O Cruises and prestigious Hotel Contracts in Asia. Working at sea made Lauren very ambitious, organised and hard working.

As a child, Lauren was encouraged to perform and given opportunities to excel at Stagecoach, building on her confidence and ‘Creative Courage For Life’. She has used these qualities as a student, teacher, manager and now Principal combining performance and education.

Lauren is a highly experienced music teacher who has taught all ages in both State and Independent schools. She has also been trained in ABRSM, LAMDA and RAD. Lauren is a warm, charismatic and caring person who wants to make everyone at her school feel welcome.
