Hannah Potter
South/South East

My name is Hannah Potter and I'm am a highly energised, aspiring, inspiring and passionate singing teacher and choir director. I run choirs, Glee Clubs and after school clubs across the South East, as well as singing in youth centres and setting up staff choirs for terrified teachers!

Having completed my extensive music training at the University of Christchurch, my passion for singing and its influence on happiness and morality has lead me into the path of teaching. I believe singing to be a significant part of human-kind's progression and is a lynch pin in making the world a better place. I have experienced the empowerment of singing, especially in young people, and I want to dedicate my life to ensuring that happens, irrespective of age or ethnicity.

I love Find Your Voice as it emulates this message and I relish the opportunity to work for and be a part of the organisation. I am inspired everyday to expand and develop my work, I can't wait to bring my experiences, passion, drive and positivity to you and your students.

Ceyhan Djevat
South/South East

My passion is singing and song-writing and I have spent many years honing my craft by performing in clubs, shows, festivals, private functions and writing and recording my music. Singing has always been very special to me and I find it to be an incredibly powerful tool of self-expression and individuality. I have always valued the importance of education, believing it to be empowering and life-changing. Having obtained a PGCE in General Primary education from the University of Cambridge, I worked as a Classroom Teacher where my dedication to my role confirmed to me the challenging, yet incredibly rewarding work that can be achieved through educating children and making a positive difference to their lives. . By organising musical activities I am able to help bring singing and music to life for children and provide them with fun, enjoyable, rewarding experiences. I love to combine my experience of working with children with my passion for music in order to bring this subject to life for the pupils I teach

Catrin Woodruff
North

I'm Catrin and after having had a passion for music my whole life, I was lucky enough to be able to study it at a higher level, attending the University of York where I gained a BA with first class Honours. I'm currently undertaking a MA in Vocal Performance at the Royal Northern College of Music, and this is what has bought me to the fabulous Manchester area.
Passing my love of music onto young people in the local community has always been an ambition of mine and I had a fantastic time engaged by the University of York's Music Education Group, as a primary school activities leader. During the course of our workshops, we worked towards productions that were performed by local school children on campus.

I love all aspects of performance and regularly work alongside the drama department at the Manchester Metropolitan University, giving first-year drama undergraduates singing tuition, both as an ensemble and individually, in exchange for drama and performance workshops myself. I perform regularly throughout the UK and have appeared in many productions as both a chorus member and a lead.
My passion is Singing, performance and showing everyone just how rewarding these two things can be. I look forward to bringing this passion to Find Your Voice.
