Ruth is a qualified management accountant with 17 years of experience working for a multi-national confectionery company. She specialised in creating user-friendly models to help analyse and improve business performance.
In 2013, as a mother of two young children, Ruth decided on a career change. She had always been passionate about music and a keen pianist. Over the next few years she worked hard to become a qualified piano teacher and build a successful business.
The importance of using high quality, relevant teaching materials was clear from early on. There were plenty of excellent resources available online – blogs, teaching videos, games, worksheets – but access to these often involved paying a monthly subscription fee. Ruth decided to use her IT and artistic skills to create many of her own worksheets, educational games and trackers. Her creative resources have been used successfully by many other music teachers.
My Music Resource was born out of a desire to create an accessible and innovative platform where music teachers could source digital resources for lessons, or open their own store and sell or share their resources without the need to build their own website.
