towards choral excellence


 My choir's tone needs a bit of a lift...

The sound quality needs more focus...

 My sopranos and tenors find it difficult to sing high notes well...

I have plenty of altos and basses but I’d like a richer sound...


What can I do? How can I help them?


These are the kinds of problems that Deborah has successfully addressed for many years. As an experienced professional singer, teacher and conductor, Deborah works regularly with the UK's leading choirs and has developed methods of enhancing the choral sound and giving amateur singers a new-found confidence in their own voices.

Her approach is to address sound quality, vocal issues and to enhance and focus the sound. All Deborah’s techniques, exercises and advice have a sound technical basis but are clearly and simply explained so that all choir members will feel more confident of their abilities.

So often in the rehearsal period leading up to a concert, matters of voice production can get forgotten or there just isn't enough time. Conductors are also often reluctant to bring in a ‘teacher’ to help their choir. However Deborah works closely with them to enable the singers to achieve the results that the conductor seeks without taking up valuable rehearsal time.
