Penny Rawlings

Penny founded Preludes in 2009 with Charlie Groves in two Bristol schools. Since then the project has grown and grown, and now provides thousands of children across Bristol and Bath with a high quality music education. 

Penny plays violin, recorder and piano and has been involved in community music and education for most of her musical life. Prior to Preludes she ran Hum and Drum sessions for children from six months to twelve years old, and has performed in care homes across Bristol. Throughout her career Penny has given countless young people an incredible start in music and continues to inspire and enrich the lives of many today.
