I’ve been singing as long as I can remember. All of our family had a song to sing at family do’s, like most Liverpool families did. As a teacher and music educator in schools then universities I have always had one belief, if you can talk you can sing! I have shared singing with students, children, teachers and colleagues. The power of song for wellbeing led to me running a work-based staff singing group to revive worn out lecturers at MMU. This gave me the bug for working with lively, challenging, committed adults…that’s why I love the Liverpool Socialist Singers. I came to give a workshop and three years later I’m still here. A life long union member I can continue to raise my voice with others. How brilliant is that.
