FAITH WATSON

Tutor: FAITH WATSON

Faith is a member of the Natural Voice Network. She has been leading harmony singing workshops since 1998 and, through her business: Singing for Larks, she runs regular harmony singing groups in Greater Manchester, her own programme of day and weekend workshops around the UK, and one-off workshops, projects, holidays and events for other groups and organisations (including 2 previous holidays to Kerala with Aminesh Chamakala). Faith writes and arranges acapella songs for her own open-access workshops, for The Lovenotes (the acapella group she performs with), and for other voice leaders and singing groups. At the heart of all Faith’s work there remains a love of acapella singing and the belief that everyone, no matter what their level of skill, confidence, or experience, can enjoy the thrill of singing together, in harmony.
