I have a fascination for the human voice and vocal communication, whether it’s singing, speaking or voice pedagogy. Singing and writing songs has been an intrinsic part of my life since childhood, I now have an established practice, as a singer, public speaker and occasional radio presenter. I have also worked intimately with the voices of others as a radio producer. The exploration of the voice is central to my practice and research, I have explored many forms of voice work, most recently psychophysical approaches including Linklater method and Roy Hart. This practice has given me the opportunity to deepen my relationship with my voice revealing greater expressive capacity and range. I am passionate about helping others to do the same.
I have shared voice research at workshops at The Slade School of Fine Art (UCL May 2018) and gave a paper entitled 'Voice and self and the relational journey between speaking and singing' at the Finding a Voice Conference at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama (July 2019).
I have written about my experience with voice as part of my PhD, found HERE
I am inspired by research by Psychobiologist Colwyn Trevarthen, who I interviewed when making the BBC World Service documentary The Language of Lullabies, and accompanying article The Universal Language of Lullabies for the BBC News Website.
