© Step Up 2013-2017. Step Up and the Step Up logo are registered trade marks of Nathalie Richardson trading as Step Up UK Nathalie Richardson As well as being the Principal of Step Up, Nathalie is the main vocal coach for all schools at Step Up. I started Step Up in 1996 after a summer school. I had recently left The Guildhall School of Music where I had gained my degree studying singing as a first study. I starting teaching during my time at The Guildhall and taught both privately and at various colleges such as Italia Conti where I met Stacey. It was my teaching experience and training at the Guildhall that led me to want to start a theatre school for children that combined excellent teaching with a strong work ethic built into the course. The way that the Step Up course is structured means that commitment is essential and the speed with which we archive our goals at Step Up means that the children have to be focused at all times. I am very much in demand as a coach in various establishments and have recently opened a full time music prep school called RIMU Music Preparatory School and Nursery (www.rimu.co.uk) for 18 months to 11 years.
