About Me

Based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. I'm a singer, songwriter and community musician.

I believe that singing belongs to everyone and is a fundamental community building activity. My mission is to make it as joyful and accessible to as many people as possible.

I specialise in running harmony singing groups and workshops in the community, in mental health settings, in prisons and in schools. I provide one-to-one singing lessons for individuals wanting to learn more and take their singing to the next level.

I perform original material using voice and loop pedal under the name Kaninchen, sing in the brilliantly fun Yellow Goose Dance Band, and sing in a touring band with mega Prince nerds Prince Tribute Endorphinmachine.

Training:

I hold a Music Performance BMus(Hons) from the University of Huddersfield and an MA in Community Music from the University of York.

I attended Natural Voice Practitioners Network singer leaders training with Frankie Armstrong in 2009, attended Rhiannon's 'Mele A Hakuwale' followed by year long improvisation course 'All The Way In' in 2019. I have completed Vocal Process' 'Singing Teacher Training' and the SOVT Singing Technique course by Oren Boder.

I am a Vocal Health First Aider  

with Vocal Health Education.
