Read what our members say about the choir here
The songs are all taught by ear, with no need for any previous experience, or the need to read music. The songs are usually arranged in simple harmonies, and you can chose the parts you want to sing.
Helen is a trained primary teacher with over 20 years of experience. She has taught music to children of all ages, as well as adults.
Helen is a member of the Natural Voice Practitioners’ network, which promotes the belief that singing is everyone’s birthright. Her ambition is to help people, especially those who were told they couldn’t sing at school, to discover and free up their inner voice and discover the joy of group harmony singing.
Helen trained in classical music from an early age, playing the violin and piano. Later on she began to develop her singing repertoire, and now performs regularly with the funky Latino Jazz originals band Loop the Moon.
Helen also has experience of working with adults suffering with Parkinson's and dementia, and is soon to be running a specialist group for Parkinsons.... watch this space!
As well as the choir and specialist groups, Helen is founding director of Singing's Cool - the local after-school singing school for kids.
