“Katie's love and enthusiasm for singing is infectious. Which means she generates that same love and enthusiasm in others. ”
— Bob Harper
“Singing is just amazing. The benefits gained are both physical and mental and I always feel so much better during and after a singing session. It's also great to meet up with others either in person or via Zoom and see everyone smiling and having fun.”

🌹 🎶 Warning: Singing can seriously increase your health and 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, world, folk - are taught by ear, layering harmonies as we build a great sound. Plus the all-important tea/chat break and plenty of laughs along the way.
🌹 🎶 Katie's Approach
Katie has directed sessions for over 20 London choirs, including five hospitals and has directed large scale events including Sing for Water, Festival of Peace Croydon and St Christopher's Hospice. 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. ”
— Anna, Welcome Choir
