I absolutely love conducting choirs- something truly magical happens when you have multiple voices coming together – both musically and emotionally. I have several regular choirs; Finsbury Park Singers, Kensington Singers, Victoria Park Singers, the ITV Staff Choir – plus Rothschild Office choir for Music in Offices. Described by James Sterling, head of BBC Music, as ‘stunning’, watch a video of Victoria Park Singers here.
In December 2016 I was fortunate to be invited by my youth choir conductor (and mentor to Gary Barlow at the start of his career) Robert Howes to take a number of my singers to perform with Gary at the Royal Variety Show, televised on December 13th. In 2017 we went one better and joined Gary, co-writer Tim Firth and the cast of the Girls as the opening act for the Olivier Awards at the Royal Albert Hall.
Since moving to London in 2013 I have delivered choral projects and rehearsals for: Ark Schools, British Academy of New Music, Channel 4, Pauline Quirk Academy, Haringey Shed, the NHS, Royal Academy of Art, Selfridges, Shoreditch House, & Telegraph Newspaper . I also helped launch the Sing to Live, Live to Sing choirs with Royal Brompton Hospital, London in 2014.
I hold an LRSM with distinction in Choral Conducting (2014) and have studied with the Association of British Choral Conductors on their advanced programme. I am also an advocate of good vocal health and up to date vocal teachings. I am currently studying on the Estill EMT (Estill Master Trainer) course with Anne Marie Speed.
Originally from Leicester, I founded Fosse Singers in 2007 ( – until December 2012, a highlight of which was our choral exchange to Sweden), launched a Parkinson’s UK choir, and also relaunched the Square Mile Choir for De Montfort University in November 2012.
