I have been a choir leader for a number of community choirs, including the National Theatre choir.
Sing Eazy is my own choir. We meet on wednesdays 11 15- 12 30, at my studio opposite Peckham Rye Park. We pride ourselves on being very bold in our choice of material; most of what we want to sing can’t be found in choral arrangement books, so they are mostly my own arrangements – but sometimes we like to dive into a song we fancy on the day and make up our parts there and then. We did this recently with So Long Marianne and the Times they are a changing. In the last few month we have sung: Lots of Neil Young, some clasic Elton, Bruce Springsteen, Thomas Tallis, Joan as Policewoman, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen and by Earth Wind and Fire, plus we gathered a mob of friends and performed the choral version of my christmas single.
The choir is non audition, and the emphasis is on having fun whilst developing a sense of how the language of music actually works, as related to singing. It’s also about finding a way into music as a ‘non musician’. I honestly don’t think anyone who has come along, hasn’t improved as a singer and a musician.
I was the choir leader for Goose Green Community choir for a number of years, but am all better now (only kidding).
