Singing in a choir is a unique and life-changing experience for any singer, regardless of experience or ability. With over 15 years experience of singing in, accompanying and leading choirs of all kinds, I love directing vocalists with energy and humour, ensuring all rehearsals and performances are enjoyable and fun. My natural teaching ability develops technical musicianship, as well as producing performances of high quality. A irresistible repertoire of music, chosen by both myself and members of the choir, keeps singers and audience members entertained, even after rehearsals and concerts are over.
The perfect way to break the routine of work, socialise with colleagues in a different environment and situation and, above all, a chance to reset one's mind in order to continue the day or week ahead with new-found energy and motivation. Setting-up a choir in your office or place of work could not be easier. Singers are led through relaxing breathing and mindful body exercises in preparation for an hour or two of musical fun. A variety of popular and inspiring songs are taught, with singers, however experienced or not, taught harmony and part-singing to help 'turn-off' from any work stresses. A chance to perform at seasonal concerts provides enjoyment for the whole team, and also enables those who choose not to sing to take part. Many organisations have used such occasions to add extra social events to their calendars or even fundraise for chosen charities. If your workplace could do with some mindful musical magic, contact me for further advice and information.
A chance to sing your heart out whilst enjoying a glass of something lovely - what could be better? I am currently setting-up a pub choir in the Richmond/Twickenham area. An informal choir, the focus will be on singing popular and well-known songs with simple musical arrangements that can be learnt by ear. Singers will benefit from the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of a local pub, as well as being able to sing-a-long with friends and appreciate a pint (or two!). Keep an eye out for more information, or contact me if you have a venue in mind.
