I trained as a natural voice practitioner in June 2017, at which point my only experience in working with singing and groups was at my local church where I play the organ. I realised that my approach was far too technical and not in keeping with my own philosophy that everyone could sing.
I came across natural voice after attending a workshop at a festival in Wiltshire and knew that it fitted with what I was trying to achieve.
Since becoming a trainer I have run ‘pop-up’ groups for particular events in my local area for Christmas and a Spring Sing, for example, delivered workshops at Sidmouth and Broadstairs folk festivals and teach a regular class for older learners, (Agewell Project), as part of my work at Hammersmith & Fulham’s Adult Learning & Skills Service.
I have been running a Zoom sing since lock-down which has proved popular.
Originally from Somerset, I currently live and work in London.
