As a professional singer with over 30 years experience Debra has performed in  10 countries and  taught both at home and abroad.

She has recently moved to East Sussex and is starting to build up her teaching business again  as a singing teacher of all styles and ages from beginner to experienced, and a voice coach for those who use their speaking voice in a professional capacity, whether that be teachers, telemarketers or after dinner speakers.

Her recent love of the ukulele inspires her to pass on the joy of music through teaching 1-1, to groups, both adult classes  and in schools.

Debra is taking her Music for the Brain sessions into residential care homes which is incredibly uplifting and fulfilling for both her and the residents.

As a Dementia Friend Champion Debra is able to deliver free, one hour information sessions on what it is like to be living with dementia, either as someone who has it or their carer and these sessions are available to all in the community to create awareness. Please contact her if you interested in holding one of these sessions for your friends, family or colleagues.

Several years ago Debra retrained as an Image Consultant and now specialises in the occasional client from  the Trans community – she is a  member of the Beaumont Society.

Debra has an up to date DBS check and full public liability  insurance.

Hobbies include gardening, walking, Spanish and networking, of course!
