Currently, I run Riff Raff, the funky pop and rock choir in Bristol, with my co-leader Joe Blench (a fellow singing teacher in Bristol). The choir rehearses weekly on Mondays or Tuesdays. You don't need to be able to read music: all of the parts are taught by ear. There's no audition, just come along and enjoy yourself!
We also run workshops once or twice a year, usually with a particular artist or group as the theme of the day.
For more information on the choir or upcoming workshops please visit our website: www.riffraffchoir.co.uk for more information.
I sang with Naked Voices, a Bristol based a cappella group, for three years, during which time I also arranged two songs for the group. I taught harmony singing workshops with Naked Voices and continue to teach workshops and teach on singing holidays with Sing Your Socks Off. I also perform with The Barefooters, a small a cappella group.
I am a Grade 8 soprano who began teaching in natural voice workshops for a number of years. I gave one-to-one singing lessons for 4 years, combining the natural voice philosophy that everyone should be able to sing regardless of previous musical ability or experience, with the techniques I have learnt in formal training to get the most out of ones voice.
I think singing should be enjoyable and fun.
