Tutors: Cat Fothergill & Henry Sears
Cat Fothergill has been leading singing groups and choirs in West Wales for over 6 years, as well as a highly successful group holiday in Morocco early in 2020.
St Dogmaels Singing Village and Can Sing in Narberth are both groups which have grown and grown in popularity since she started leading them, in fact both groups got too big for the halls they were in. Cat is also invited to lead other groups in Aberystwyth and the Gower regularly and led singing in care homes and day centres every week. Obviously 2020 brought huge changes to singing , and groups moved online or outdoors where possible.
She chooses uplifting , moving songs from all over the world (with only a slight bias towards African and gospel songs!)
She has a talent for bringing a group together in harmony and helping people to feel connected and joyful.
One of the highlights of her singing career has been the singing holiday in Morocco. The elements of sunshine, excitement, group cohesion and relaxation in the beautiful new Eco Lodge, makes for a magical combination which somehow makes the harmonies even sweeter than usual.
Cat and Henry are a complimentary teaching team; Henry excels with his musicality and harmonies and Cat is always encouraging more blending and good vibes within the group. Together they teach with a warm and humorous touch and help the group to reach new heights of singing pleasure!
