Choir leader, arranger, singer
Wendy has been teaching singing since the 1990s and started her first choir, Portishead Sound in 2005. She loves the sensation of singing in unaccompanied harmony; finding the centre of a note and blending it in a chord with other singers is uniquely satisfying. Teaching groups of people and giving them the tools to sing confidently and then to sing in harmony brings a whole other level of fabulousness! She passionately believes that everyone can sing.
Wendy's style of teaching is uplifting and inspiring. She teaches songs by ear and the harmonies build like magic. Whether you are a confident singer or have only ever sung in the privacy of your own bathroom she will help you use your voice effectively and you'll find yourself singing four part harmony without really trying. Wendy is a member of the Natural Voice Network
Roberta met Wendy at "Portishead Sing for Water" in 2016, when she was looking for a hobby which fitted in around her two young children. She fell in love with singing, joined ViBE Pop Rock choir in January 2017, became a member of the Chandeliers in April 2018 and can often be seen popping up in Wendy's other singing groups, as she loves learning their songs too! (She even gets withdrawal symptoms during the holidays when there are no new songs to learn!!)
Prior to starting a family, Roberta worked in the legal profession. She has since transferred many of her skills to new roles which fit around her family and was delighted to start supporting Wendy with administrative and banking tasks in September 2018.
