After graduating from Oxford University in 1964 with a degree in English, Margaret Woodward became a secondary school teacher and taught in Holland Park school, followed by posts in Cambridge and Milton Keynes where she taught 2 courses for the Open University from 1971 onwards.
On starting a family, she pursued her other passion, music, and worked for the Milton Keynes Music Service for 27 years.
She first volunteered in Tyume Valley in 2001 and taught there on 9 subsequent visits.
She was inspired by the vocal tradition among the children, teachers and parents there, which seemed to her to be unique.
