  • 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 also one of the Tutors on our successful Early Music Summer School. 

Deborah has the same inclusive approach to her predecessor, Roger (now retired), believing in the sheer joy to be shared with music. It’s about being part of something. She has brought 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.
