My Voice Experience

I got into music through experimenting with various writing forms such as poetry playwriting and

I am passionate about creativity experiment and adventure and since following my creative talent I have given a showcase of my original music in April "008and been asked to do a follow up perfomance on the strength of this the same club and another professional club on the strength of that. Who would have thought that I could do that at 49.

I am a poet I have got things to say and I want to express those things as creatively and artistically as I can through the medium of song storywriting and playwriting etc

I enjoy working with children and did a French and music day in a local school teaching the children a simple french song I had written and also some traditional ones-it was fun and it went well. I am up for doing it again and I the kids are too

I want to experiment with music and voice in as many forms and fields as possible and am looking for likeminded creatives
