I lead a number of community choirs in and around Greater Manchester. Anyone is welcome to come along and have a go and you don’t need any singing experience. There are no auditions and you don’t need to be able to read music, as everything is taught by ear. The main objective is always to enjoy singing together!

NB: I am one of a number musical directors for this group, and I typically teach 3 sessions per term.

This super friendly group is not so much a choir as a group of women who enjoy singing together.
