I am a passionate singer and have sung all my life. I love facilitating music-making with groups, particularly when people are new to singing. I am convinced of music’s power to inspire, uplift and promote connections on an individual and communal level.
Singing is at the heart of everything I do, whether it be supporting new mums to soothe and connect with their babies, encouraging people who are inhibited about their singing voices to sing out, having some fun and laughter through singing with cancer patients or leading community and office choirs.
I am an educator and group facilitator, and all the above is achieved through simply bringing people together and singing.
I worked as a doctor in the NHS before deciding to follow Howard Thurman’s advice: ‘Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.’
