Richard lives and breathes music and singing and is on a personal mission to share the amazing benefits that being part of a choir can bring to anyone and everyone! He is immensely looking forward to his time with Rock Choir – Let’s Sing!
I have been working for Rock Choir and I can genuinely say that I have loved every single second of it. It ticks all boxes for me.
I work within a great team of like-minded, creative, genuine, supportive and incredibly talented people. This is both on a local, regional and national level. I feel that I am both supported and challenged by Caroline and the team both as a musician and on a personal level.
The performance and creative opportunities that Caroline and Rock Choir have provided for me in my short time as a choir leader I could have only dreamed of in my previous job. I love the members, I love the music, I love my team and I love the whole ethos of what Rock Choir is all about.
We are always looking to provide the very best tuition, opportunities and support for each and every member and I for one continue to be inspired by Caroline and her creative team.
