Deborah Catterall (Choral Singing)

  • has been teaching and conducting since the age of seventeen, lives now in North Wales
  • was a singing teacher at Chetham’s School of Music
  • performed at the Royal Academy of Music, The Royal Northern College of Music, The Rye Festival and Manchester Cathedral.
  • was Musical Director of the National Youth Training Choir of Great Britain
  • taught for the North West Early Music Forum Summer School
  • singer in lute song duo Lyra and soloist with The York Waits
  • was chosen to meet the Queen at Buckingham Palace in gratitude to her contribution to the British music industry (HRH, we are sure, still tells people about the occasion!)

Deb is already one of the Tutors on our successful Early Music Summer School. She is taking over tuition of our Choir singing from Winter 2019, picking up the baton of the wonderful Roger Wilkes, who is retiring.

Deborah has the same fantastic approach to Roger, believing in inclusive and uniting nature of music. She brings a wealth of professional experience to Higham.


Deborah has prepared short 1 minute videos to introduce some of her courses. Worth viewing if you are wondering whether the course might be for you (ED: Chances are it will be for you!), or you are simply curious as to what this Tutor may be like.
