Singing: The key to a long life
“ I believe that singing is the key to long life, a good figure, a stable temperament, increased intelligence, new friends, super self-confidence, heightened sexual attractiveness, and a better sense of humor. ”
“ I believe in singing to such an extent that if I were asked to redesign the British educational system, I would start by insisting that group singing become a central part of the daily routine. ”

Fully catered 7-day singing workshop/holiday on a wonderful Hebridean Island
This week in May 2016 will be the 10th year of this singing holiday on the wonderful Hebridean Island of Eigg, one of the Small Isles; a week of singing, walking, laughter, merriment and, of course, delicious fully-catered food.
This week is open to singers of all levels, and I will suit the repertoire to the ability of the group. Teaching will be mostly by ear so you do not have to read music.
