It is my pleasure to introduce to you Miss Hildred our Associate Teacher and Choir Director. Miss Hildred is a classical soprano singer, pianist and creates original choir arrangements. Since graduating from Bath Spa University with first class honours in BA Music, Miss Hildred has been teaching and performing in various capacities and continues to study voice under the acclaimed opera singer, Mary Plazas.

Miss Hildred has a long standing commitment to Community Choirs, both as a singer and Musical Director, having taught singing privately to students of all ages across the Bath and Bristol area. With many acclaimed performance credits herself, Frasquita in Bizet’s Carmen (Wedmore Opera), Chorus in Britten’s Peter Grimes (Bath Opera), Belinda in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas (Wedmore Opera), Miss Hildred is passionate about our students be given the opportunity to perform and we hope to be able to showcase their talents to you in the coming academic year.

We are truly very lucky to have Miss Hildred here in our school.  Certainly, I was truly inspired by Miss Hildred vocal demonstrations, as were the student’s. Mr Still
Miss Hildred teaches with passion and enthusiasm, and always a smile, and endeavours nurture individual growth. As well as sharing her technical knowledge, Miss Hildred also encourages students to develop their confidence as a performer.
We should also take this opportunity to let you know that students will soon be able to access the choir lyrics from our Choir Lyrics page. Here Miss Hildred will share song and lyric sheets. Students are encouraged to learn and memorise their songs so that they can look up and address the audience.
