Yes! When you come you can choose to sit in the Soprano’s (high voice), Mezzo’s (medium high voice) or Alto’s (lower voice). These vocal parts will correspond to the harmonies you will learn.
This choir is lead by Emily Woodward.
Emily fell in love with music aged 5 when she began learning the Cello. She started taking her ABRSM music grades when she was 7 and was accepted into prestigious youth orchestra when she was 8. She started having singing lessons at a young age and it was clear that performing and singing was the path she would take professionally.
At the Brit School for Performing arts, she studied Musical Theatre for 2 years and went onto study Musical Theatre at Arts Ed in Chiswick. During her training she was a soprano singer in the London Concert Choir and performed at The Royal Albert hall for the annual Christmas concert.
After her training Emily began performing professionally in UK touring Pantomimes, regional theatre and abroad in Europe performing musicals where she took the role of dance Captain and lead vocalist.
Emily started teaching singing 11 years ago in Surrey at Top Hat Stage School and privately.
She was appointed the music teacher at Wallington Primary School teaching music to students in year 1‑6.
Emily is able to enter singing students in for ABRSM singing exams. She is thrilled to be able to give adults in Norfolk the opportunity to sing in a choir and have fun doing it!
Emily is currently studying for her MA in professional Practice Voice Pedagogy with the Voice Study Centre through the University of Wales Trinity Saint David.
