MUSIC CV

Hello, my name is Laura Loft and I am a Musician, Singer-Songwriter, Performer and Educator based in Exeter. 

I write songs as commissions for many projects and have been focusing on Children's Music Making projects for the past 4 years. I wrote and self published 'Big Emotions: Mindful Music For Little People'; a creative music wellbeing resource for EYFS/KS1 3-7yr olds. This is accompanied by an audio book, instrumental soundtrack plus a schools activity pack which includes 5 originally composed songs. 

Please enjoy my Music CV and some samples of my music.
