Our Facilitators of Song:
Tembre de Carteret:
Tembre is hosting the We May Sing Zoom events from her home is County Clare.
Tembre has been leading men, women and children in song in Ireland for 19 years. As a singer she feels blessed that she has been able to have music as her passion and her job. Her roles are as a choir leader, community musician, mentor, early years music educator and performer. Tembre leads in a natural organic way, creating a safe, held and fun space, inclusive of heart and exploration. Tembre has a love and passion for singing, easy melodies and harmonies that is accessible able to all. She will be hosting this event for us all from her home in County Clare where she lives with her family.

Ali Burns:
Ali Burns is a talented and unique song writer, based in Scotland. I have spent years learning and teaching her songs, so many choir members and workshop participants have sung her songs, maybe without knowing it. It is such a pleasure to have Ali join us in June. Below is her Website and below is some more details about her and her work. Tembre
‘I’m a songwriter and workshop leader based in S.W. Scotland. I write songs then I teach them at harmony singing workshops and perform them with choirs. I also publish the songs and arrangements I write.
I’ve always been fascinated by the sound of voices singing: it doesn’t have to be a great voice – in fact quite the opposite – I think I’m inspired just by the fact that people’s voices are so closely connected to themselves and that they are prepared to stand up and sing – this is me – this is what I sound like! And when you put many voices together, the strong support the weak and the whole is such a magnificent thing – so much larger than the sum of the parts. I’ve developed my own style of writing over the years. I’m interested in the early British folk hymn style of West Gallery music, developed after the reformation: one of the defining things of this style is that everyone has a great tune to sing and this suits my approach to workshops where I want every singer to go home with a great tune ringing in their head.’
Sophia Efthimiou:
Sophia is singer, choir leader and music teacher based in London and Sussex. She has a unique and infectious style, bringing a sweet balance of humour and depth to her workshops.
Her warm and playful nature creates a sense of ease and unity, enabling everyone to drop into a space that is both held and free. Her own dance and movement practices naturally inform her leadership style, helping to bring the voice back into the body where it belongs.
She collects and teaches songs from different cultures and traditions from around the world, leading harmony singing workshops with people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to bring out the natural voice and reinforce our innate human ability to make music. Her singing workshops are soul inspiring, heart warming and empowering, creating a sense of euphoria and connection for everyone involved.
‘Until we can sing together again in person I’ll be offering some online workshops to keep the singing alive in our hearts. It’s a different way of being together in the music – people have found it very moving to see each other singing and know we are all experiencing the same song at the same time.’
