towards choral excellence

Deborah has a rare gift for communicating basic technique clearly and precisely and she does this in an effortlessly engaging way which leaves the singers enthused and enthralled.

 Duncan Aspden (City of Oxford Choir)

The more I work with amateur singers, the more I become convinced that the limitations we conductors come up against are best resolved through our choirs developing a better understanding of vocal technique. Issues of poor blend or intonation; compromised beauty of tone or legato; boring fortes and pianissimos; and any shortage of vocal colour, text, drama or communication, are all sorted most quickly by dealing with the technical problem underlying the issue. They are also then less likely to recur. Deborah has a rare gift for communicating basic technique clearly and precisely. She explains technical terms often discussed but rarely understood, and develops mental images to which I can refer in the weeks following. She does this in an effortlessly engaging way which leaves the singers enthused and enthralled. Above all, she does this in the context of, and in the service of, the music. And of course, she can demonstrate to the sopranos and altos what I can only hint at!
