“Clara is a brilliant choir leader and manages to get everyone making a great sound even though few of us consider ourselves to be good singers! We are relaxed and informal and there is a lot of fun and laughter.” Jane, Bratton Sings
I run two community choirs called Clarity Choir, which I lead using the principles of the Natural Voice Network. I was trained using this method by experienced choir leader Candy Verney. They are both open-access, a cappella choirs that are as much about the social and community aspect as they are the singing. Performance dates are listed on the Clarity Choir page.

I have set up an a capella singing club for pupils at St Laurence School in Bradford on Avon and in May I will start a series of whole-school singing workshops at St Michael's Junior School in Bath.
Singing Days and Workshops

Singing is a great relationship builder and can be a fantastic way to help teams bond. A typical singing day would include:
