Martha Wright

Founder and Director

Martha founded Mindful Music while working as a primary school teacher in Medway. She had become aware of the emotional needs pupils were struggling with and the patterns of behaviour negatively affecting their wellbeing, and so started to pilot music projects to support children in their development of emotional literacy. This began the ongoing process of contextual observations supported by her mindfulness practice in the tradition of Nobel peace prize nominated Buddhist monk, Thích Nhất Hạnh.

Martha has a masters in Transformational Leadership through Teach First and Canterbury Christ Church, and a degree in Music from Durham University. She is grateful to be part of the global Plum Village sangha (mindfulness practice community) and spent three months coordinating retreats for The Barn Retreat Centre in Totnes.
