Meet Celia Webb

As a Member of the Natural Voice Network since its founding, I embrace its core philosophy that vocalising, creativity and song should be accessible to all regardless of musical ability or experience.

It’s a wonderfully inclusive and accessible way for anyone to participate in glorious harmony singing without any need for previous musical knowledge, skill or talent.

“Once again I had a complete blast! .. your flexible approach was spot on, this ensured that you met the needs of the group. I will definitely join you again!”

“It was easy to relax and feel completely supported by your expertise”

I run a range of one-off workshops such as ‘Singing for the Terrified’, Seasonal Celebrations, Wassails, Carolling and ‘Wild Singing’;  ‘Age Positive Singing’, and Singing for Well-being.

I offer Natural Voice Sessions for established non-NVN-style choirs, voice technique for theatre and performance including circus.

As the ‘Voice Ninja’ with the ground-breaking ‘InspireMe’ company, I ran highly effective corporate team-building and voice care with business and charity professionals.

For five years I ran Cardiff’s only ‘Singing for the Brain’ sessions for people with dementia and their carers.

Other past work includes inventing creative voice play and singing programmes for children and adults with special needs, and those with depression or mental health issues as well as university drama students. 

As part of the Sing for Water Cardiff team, I helped organise Sing For Water concerts in Cardiff Bay in 2015 and 2017, raising well over £75k for WaterAid.

Since 2014 I’ve been leading annual singing holidays in Wales and teaching regularly abroad in Bavaria and at the famously hospitable Maison Anglaise in Morocco. In 2018 I joyously dived into blue Mediterranean seas, leading Singing holidays from the gorgeous East Meets West Turkish Boat.

Professional background

Whilst working for five years with the highly respected Centre for Performance Research I assisted with the acclaimed Giving Voice project, training with many highly regarded voice and performance experts including Enrique Pardo, Nicolás Núñez, Frankie Armstrong, Kristin Linklater, Phillip Zarilli, Song of the Goat and Gardzienice Theatres, as well as many traditional singers from Brittany, Sweden and Wales.

Since the Natural Voice Network of professional singing leaders began, there’s no shortage of inspiration from my wonderful comrades in the Natural Voice community!

I bring to my work more than twenty years of professional experience in the field of Natural Voice, with hundreds of happy and empowered singers.
