Location: England, United Kingdom
I currently lead the 100-voice open-access singing group the ok chorale in Woodbridge, Suffolk, UK. I also run singing workshops open to the general public throughout the UK and beyond.
I am the founder of the UK community choir WorldSong in Coventry, led Woven Chords in Stamford for ten years, and also founded and ran a 12-piece women's ensemble Vox Mondiale and a more theatrical project: Foot + Mouth voice-theatre.
I teach unaccompanied harmony songs from across the globe, all in the original languages. I am a member of the Natural Voice Practitioners' Network. My approach to singing is based on the “Natural Voice” ethos which states that everybody can sing (so we don’t have auditions, anybody is welcome to join) and that nobody should be denied access to music (hence we don’t use written notation, all songs are taught by ear).
I maintain a weekly blog From the Front of the Choir which gives me a chance to air my views and understanding of all things singing and choir related.
