Offical bio

I LOVE helping people to discover their innate musicianship!

I had a very blessed upbringing with amazing musical opportunities and encouragement. I danced, sang, and tootled my way into serious study in Wellington, Sydney and London. I won 2 TUI awards for my children’s albums and was fortunate enough to call the Sydney Opera House my office for a while.

I’m loving living in the Manawatu...and here’s what I do now.

I adore helping people find their voices. I run Women In Song Together and Shed 23 Chorus, workshops, and you can also come to me  for vocal coaching.

I’m very drawn to African drumming...I run sessions for adults in Palmerston North, catering for beginners and those who’ve had a go already!

I am really good with enabling groups of people to drum. I can have a bunch of strangers sounding like rock stars in no time at all. So I’m happy to come to your workplace, school, or conference to get everyone grooving too.

I lead three spectacular performing groups which are available for performances & appearances: Manawataki, Nuvivi and Shed 23 Chorus

I also am a dab hand at ukulele...I can teach YOU how to play from scratch and reinvigorate your playing.

I hang out and work from a cool spot in central Palmerston North: Shed 23- the arts playground of the city. Look forward to seeing you there soon. :)
