Choirs

 Building community through the magic of harmony singing.

Come & Sing!!!

Katie's love and enthusiasm for singing is infectious. Which means she generates that same love and enthusiasm in others. ”

— Bob Harper

🌹 🎶 Warning:  Singing can seriously increase 
your health & happiness! 
Singing in a choir has many wonderful, well-researched health benefits:
Social Vitamins - building oxytocin boosted friendships.
Breathing deep - supports lung health 
Voice gym - a fun work-out for mind, heart, body and soul
Mindfulness - tuning into the present moment
Confidence - lifting spirits and self-esteem
Contribution - raising voices for local/ global causes.
Unity - joining voices with people from different backgrounds
Joy! - enjoying the magic of singing together

🌹 🎶 What happens in a choir session? 
We start with a lively, fun, warm up to tune up our voices.  Songs from global genres - pop, folk, folk - are taught by ear, layering harmonies as we build a great sound.  Plus the all-important tea break and plenty of laughs along the way.

🌹 🎶 Katie's Approach
Committed to making the magical benefits of singing accessible and inclusive, Katie co-directed mass choral fundraiser for WaterAid Sing for Water London (2017-2023) and directed Festival of Peace Croydon 2018. She has led and arranged music for over 20 choirs in hospitals, hospices, LGBTQIA+ and mental health groups.
A fully insured, DBS checked member of the Natural Voice Network, she believes everyone has a voice and is committed to leading safe, inclusive choirs with people of all genders, cultures and creeds with zero tolerance for any form of prejudice.
Because Singing Can and Does Change the World...

Pure joy of learning to sing with others. I didn't think I could sing, I can't read music and I had no faith in my voice. Katie helped me to find the courage to try. ”
