Drayton Community Choir

Kay is a member of the Natural Voice Network and shares their philosophy that singing should be accessible to all in a safe and non-judgmental environment where people are encouraged to find their voice. She believes that there is no right or wrong in music and that there is room for everyone to embrace the voice they have and to sing in a way they love.


Kay thrives on giving people the confidence to sing alongside others whether it be for pleasure or to perform.   She believes in nurture and encouragement and her teaching style is informal, inclusive and sensitive.

Choir Reviews 

It was with a little trepidation, and persuasion, returning to choir following a long break during Covid 19, and with a new leader.  We began to meet again during October 2022, in the Church room in Drayton, a small, but cosy space, with excellent acoustics.  A small number of us, after a few sessions, performed at Carols by Candlelight in December 2022 after only a
few sessions.  Kay was so suppportive and encouraging to us all who were a little daunted!
With numbers dwindling a little in the new year, Kay has been an inspiration to us all.  Writing arrangements, teaching us new music – Kate Rusby, and Kirsty MacColl being particular favourites of mine.  Obviously a talented musician, the ukelele accompaniments, and ease and patience with which Kay teaches us different harmonies is wonderful to be part of.  Kay’s
style of leading the choir with indie folk mix of music, is fun, enjoyable, enthusiastic and encouraging to us all, the sessions filled with laughter, making singing the pleasure that it should be.  Always making us feel at ease even when those bum notes slip in or the harmonies don’t work as planned!  Thank you Kay.

I really enjoy going to choir. There’s no judgement, you don’t need to be able to read music, or have done any singing before, and Kay is great at encouraging people to have a go at things, if you want to – equally there’s no pressure to do anything you’re not comfortable with. There’s always a lot of laughter, and singing with other people is a real mood-booster. I know that if I’ve had a rubbish day, going to choir will turn my mood around, and I’ll come away on a high.
