I also run music groups in care homes, most recently setting up ten care

by myself called Musical Memories.
I run monthly community Drum Circles using African drums as I am a qualified

using singing and drumming.
In addition to these groups, I teach students on a one to one basis, in
singing for fun using a Natural Voice approach, piano, clarinet and saxophone.
