What is Community Music Malvern and who is Es?

Hi, I am Es Hoyle. My background is varied, including qualifications in teaching, singing and singing for health.

I have experience of teaching singing and music with age groups ranging from 0 (pre-birth) to 104 ( I would happily work with older people but haven’t met many recently). My music training is through the British Kodaly Association, Doremi Connect, Alzheimer’s Society and my amazing singing teacher Erika Mädi Jones. Singing is central to my own well-being…when the going gets tough I find that to put a smile back on my face and a spring in my step I just need to sing the song from my heart. People are my other great love, so I can’t wait to meet you. I hope to help find the way to make your hearts sing too.

Do click the video above to take a walk with me as I chatter on about what Community Music Malvern is all about and why YOU should sing!
