The Voice Teachers
About Roxane Smith
Roxane is based in West Wales and has been running voice workshops and singing groups for many years.
She works regularly with singing groups in Drug and Alcohol Rehab, does singing with teenagers, and co-runs and conducts the Sing for Water Choir in London with founder Helen Chadwick. The choir is made up of 800-900 people who make a glorious sound AND raise money for Water Aid.
She specialises in funky upbeat harmonies that get the toes tapping and just make you feel happy. We will be singing all sorts of songs, from here, there and everywhere. Whichever songs we end up singing, they will be fun to learn and a pleasure to sing.
Helen Chadwick is based in London and is a composer, performer and workshop leader. Her theatre pieces have been performed at the Royal Opera House and she had composed for the Royal Shakespeare Company. Her songs are moving, powerful and haunting and yet, simultaneously uplifting and joyful. She is an altogether inspiring presence, and has made 9 (yes, 9) albums.
Sian Croose and Jon Baker are the creative team behind 'The Voice Project'. Their work is innovative and experimental and an absolute joy to sing. It is hard to pigeon-hole their full range of musical expertise....so just 'expect the unexpected'. They are members of 'Human Music' who are a group of 8 singer/composers creating great acapella for the 21st century.
Dave Camlin is a highly verstile musician. His understanding of a interlocking rhythm will rock the workshops and the camp fire singing.
We welcome back Rob Carney, Iona Sawtell and Jamie Dawes as their 'intimate' workshops were so wonderful last year.
