Thula Mama is an informal choir I run for mums and mums to be.  I started running it when I was six months pregnant with my second baby.

We sing simple songs from around the world in easy to grasp harmonies. These rounds, chants and lullabies are a refreshing change to The Wheels on the Bus!

Listen: Bright Morning Star

Along with all my other projects I wanted to make more music accessible to people who might not otherwise hear it.  When I discovered Helen Yeomans’ franchise this seemed like the perfect thing to do while I was busy being a mother.  Both my son and daughter love the songs.

I have discovered that the mixture of my choral training at university and my experience as a piano teacher has meant that teaching a choir has come very naturally to me.

At present I run this class at The Stoke Newington Tea House, on Monday afternoons at 1:30pm and at Mothers Hub in Walthamstow at 11am on Wednesday mornings.  Classes usually continue during school holidays.  Sign up to my mailing list to receive notifications.
