I’d Love To Work With Your Choir!
For many years I have worked as a Choir Leader and Conductor, for choirs both large and small. It’s a part of my singing life that I thoroughly enjoy.
EYFS - I've worked with organisations such as Little Voices, The Music School for Children, UpBeat Music, Jumping Beans and Munchkin Music, and have worked as a ‘supply’ vocal and instrumental teacher in both nurseries and schools.
PRIMARY / SECONDARY - Alongside teaching private 1:1 Singing Lessons in Schools around London (Wimbledon High School and Marymount International London) I work with the Tri-Borough Music Hub leading Choirs and Vocal Groups that perform regularly at The Royal Festival Hall and The Royal Albert Hall, and have also recorded commissioned material for the Childrens Choirs with both The Bach Choir and The BBC Singers.
UNIVERSITY / COMMUNITY COLLEGES - I regularly get invited as a Guest Lecturer and Vocal Coach for Universities and Community Colleges delivering a variety of workshops and/or commissioned projects.
COMMUNITY CHOIRS - I run a variety of Choirs specialising in Singing for Wellbeing, Singing for Lung Health, Singing for Breathing, Alzheimers, Dementia and Stroke sufferers. I am passionate about the many proven benefits of singing for our physical and mental health and actively pursue arts and health intiatives. Please get in touch if you wish to join any of my current choirs (listed below), have enquiries regarding specialised Courses, or if you want me to work with you to build a Choir for you and your tribe.
* NHS - CLCH Trust Staff Choir
* Chelsea Theatre Community Choir
* Mozart Champions Community Choir
* Military Wives Choir, Kingston
* The London Stroke Choir
TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES - Choir and group singing makes for a superbly enjoyable Team Building activity in the office, or as a Recording Day experience for you and your friends. You get vocal coaching, a two hour recording session and your own digital download as a keepsake! Also a great idea for creating long lasting memories as a party activity or a way to commemorate special occasions. Please see my Recordings / Session Singer page for further information.
(All Singing Courses / Choirs are running and offered as both online and/or in-person)
