About Monica

Monica is a vocalist / choralist and piano accompanist – a teacher, trainer and performer whose aims are to connect, unlock and free the voice that is within us all.

She has had a varied career teaching, singing and accompanying in Scotland, Kuwait, Oman, Dubai, China and Spain.  Monica has sung with the Edinburgh Festival Chorus, chamber choirs of Kuwait and Oman, besides having formed and trained various vocal and chamber groups in Dubai and Muscat.  She now helps train and accompanies a local choir in Jimena.

With her husband Peter, a multi-instrumental wind specialist, she hosts annual visits of Early Music choirs from Lacock in England and over the years Jimena has welcomed choral groups from Holland, Norway and England.

Monica has worked with children and adults of all ages.  In Oman, with the Royal Symphony Orchestra, she taught theory, musical knowledge, pianoforte and choral skills to boys and girls as the essential prerequisites of their orchestral training.  She has started music programmes in various international schools, including Repton Dubai and Foremarke Dubai.  She is blessed with six grandchildren – all of whom sing, dance and play!

Monica is passionate about sharing the joy and experience of singing and believes we all have the potential to unlock our voices.  By the end of the weekend workshop, she looks forward to the group performing what has been taught and shared.
