Singing, Aerosols and COVID

Being a member of the UK’s AOTOS, the Association of Teachers of Singing, during a global pandemic has been invaluable. The support I have gained from this organisation has been absolutely wonderful. We’re all desperately feeling our way through 2020, with unique struggles of our own. AOTOS has provided a professional network and safe, private discussion forum for members to learn about coronavirus in relation to singing, how to deliver voice lessons online, prepare to resume face-to-face lessons (for those able to) and, very importantly, air concerns and frustrations. As part of AOTOS provision, online professional development and seminars are now offered to members for free for the remainder of the year.

Available to the public and in association with AOTOS, is also the following look into the results of the PERFORM study (August 2020), currently awaiting peer review. Nicholas Gibbins, Natalie Watson and Declan Costello, three of the UK’s leading laryngologists currently spear-heading major UK studies into aerosol generation by singers, discuss the implications for government guidelines.

It’s a sobering watch, but one that is also filled with hope and determination. With people such as these three, the team and funding behind them and organisations like AOTOS, we #CanDoMusic and #LetTheMusicPlay again.

Jennifer is an incredible singer. We had her with Cafe Society to play at my 40th and it was everything I could dream off- they played beautiful music, and brought a very good vibe to the party. All the guests talked about how great they were, with a repertoire of very nice songs which we loved to listen to, but at the same time allowing us to keep the conversation going. I can’t recommend her enough.

Jenny sang beautifully at our wedding in August 2019! She moved many members of the congregation to tears with her amazing singing. We absolutely loved it and would highly recommend her. Each time we meet up with friends and family that were there, they all comment on how amazing her singing was and how much they enjoyed it! She sang a Maori love song perfectly - commented the relatives from New Zealand! X

Jenny was the absolute highlight of our wedding ceremony. We picked some tricky songs and she had the whole audience joining in at the chorus. Luckily they didn't join at all points because it gave everyone a chance to hear her beautiful voice as well! I can't recommend highly enough.

Jenny was amazing from the moment I enquired about her playing the violin at our wedding ceremony. So quick to respond, helpful, friendly, flexible & professional, and was able to recommend songs and even learnt a new song for the exit music. I was so confident that she had everything under control which was invaluable and it was something on the day that I knew I just didn’t have to worry about. Jenny is so talented and it really added to the ceremony, I am so pleased that I found her! Thank you so so much!

Jenny sang at our wedding - her music set the tone and made for a truly special experience. She has a beautiful voice, is very easy to work with, and worked seamlessly with our (very exacting) venue to get everything just right. Thank you Jenny!
