About Kerry

 

‘Singing for All ’, is a small organisation with big ambitions to improve lives through singing. ‘Singing for All ’ does just that: providing singing tuition for individuals, groups and teams of all levels and abilities, enabling students to sing confidently, develop voice techniques and enjoy the power of the human voice. Kerry believes that through a supportive, encouraging, and positive approach everyone can not only learn to sing but they will also benefit both physically and mentally from the positive ‘side effects’ singing has, in particular when singing in groups (evidenced by formal research.) About Kerry McDunnough, BMus, PGDip, LRAM, a professional singer, graduated from the Royal Academy of Music with both a postgraduate diploma in vocal performance and the Academy’s prestigious teaching diploma, LRAM (Distinction).
