Rhyme N Shine offers fun sing along sessions to children and young adults with special needs, adapting to each individual to give them the best experience possible. Due to current circumstances, all sessions will be done virtually via either FaceTime, Skype, Whatsapp or Zoom.
I can’t wait to hear from you all!
My name's Vanessa, the founder of Rhyme N Shine. I went to a performing arts college and studied Musical Theatre up until I was 18. I did all the talent shows and school productions, I just couldn't get enough! After school, I travelled to America to work with children with special needs at a summer camp. We did lots of singing around the camp fire and even put on a production of Beauty and the Beast which they loved getting involved in. Since then, I have been working with special needs children and young adults. With my expertise, I try to adapt to each individual to give them the best musical experience possible.
1-1 sessions are completely focused on just you. You choose the songs/genre, we go at your pace and just how you like it. Sessions normally run for 30 minutes and cost £20 but longer sessions can be discussed.
Ella has been having regular virtual 1-1 singing sessions since the beginning of lockdown back in March 2020, she is non-verbal but with the help of her mum and communication aid, she was able to give me a lovely review:
“Music singing dancing is my favourite” “Vanessa is the best!”
Ella’s mum asked her why she thinks this and Ella said “Vanessa is a good singer” “She sings songs I like” “I can choose songs” “I’m excited about it”
She was then asked how the sessions make her feel and she said “I feel happy, good, fantastic, excited, proud (of my dancing)” “I’d like to do it every day if I could”
Group sessions are just like one big virtual party with all your friends! Everyone gets the chance to choose songs and show their best dance moves. The session is usually for 45 minutes and cost £5 each
