EDUCATOR/Facilitator

Danae is delighted to work with fellow performers of all ages to encourage new ways of approaching singing. Danae's Science and Maths background inspires her to constantly search for links between Science/Maths and Music, developing links with Professors in both fields, and occasionally coaching Science and Maths also. Danae also enjoys recommending colleagues to potential collaborators for the benefit of Art and Science.
