Collaborating with UK widow coach Karren Sutton to set up the UKs first Widows Choir was a proud moment in my career. An emotional experience and a privilege to hold space for such an incredible group of women.
Are you someone who would love to sing but lack the confidence or self belief that you actually can?
Perhaps singing in the shower or the car is where it begins and ends?
If this resonates, then my carefully developed and unique course is the answer in building your confidence.
By the end of the course you will be ready and raring to go with the confidence and the voice to sing out of the shower and join a choir!
This took place over the course of just 3 days in London for The National Youth Theatre of Great Britain,
to sing Rag n Bone man’s ‘Human’ in 3 part harmony.
This incredible performance was the end result.
Please note; there was no full choir rehearsal before what you see here!
