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; Kensington Singers, Victoria Park Singers, the ITV Staff Choir – plus Engine 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, Haringey Shed, Jones Day law firm, Metro Bank, Newham NHS, Royal Academy of Art, Selfridges, Standard Chartered Bank, Shoreditch House and the UK Green Buildings Council. I also helped launch the Sing to Live, Live to Sing choirs with Royal Brompton Hospital, London in 2014.
I have 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 CMT (Certified Master Teacher) course with Anne Marie Speed (having completed Estill Levels 1, 2 & 3).
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.
