In 2009 Helen created Express Yourself Community Choir. She wanted to make music fun and accessible to all, regardless of ability. It went from strength to strength and she soon realised that there was a real demand for fun, relaxed, audition free music making. She was able to utilise her skills as a teacher and musician whilst helping the community learn how rewarding making music can be. Helen’s philosophy is that everyone can sing make music and have fun. All people need is an opportunity, encouragement and self-confidence. Now we are called Express Yourself Pop Choir and we sing Pop Songs and the very best modern Show Tunes.
