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 2pm and at The Antwerp Arms in Tottenham at 2pm on Thursday afternoons.  Classes continue during school holidays.
