A singer-songwriter, choir leader and vocal facilitator based in London, I have 20 years experience of performing and bringing music/singing to groups & individuals of all ages.
I founded and led Sydenham Singers for nine years, and Vauxhall Voices for eight years: both established and vibrant community choirs run by committee. At the end of 2020 I decided to move on from both choirs. Sydenham Singers is now run by the fantastic Natasha Lohan, also an NVN member.
I am a co-founder on the team of the much-acclaimed Harmony Live: bringing friendly, mass community singing to London, Brighton & Bristol (so far!), and when lockdown first started I was leading a Singing for Breathing group, a funded community singing group, and teaching music at a primary school for children with learning difficulties.
In addition to delivering other singing workshops for schools (primary & secondary) and arts/mainstream organisations, I have led workplace choirs, presented at corporate leadership development courses and worked with actors on singing in their graduating production.
In an unexpected but very welcome change of direction, I now work full-time in the NHS and run occasional evening and weekend singing courses.
My latest offering ‘Reconnection Sessions’ are group and 1-1 sessions that explore our connection with body, breath and voice in a way that brings participants back to a sense simplicity and stillness.
I produced a 5-track EP in 2007, and have just completed writing my second album.
