KITTY STEWART

- Sharing the warmth of the Embers -

I'm a Dorset born singer songwriter, who's passionate about making music and its therapeutic benefits. I believe every individual is musical in some way and we don't need to read music or understand the theory behind it in order to be 'good' or to enjoy the benefits of it.

 

Musical Embers was born during the first lockdown when I recognised the need for music, creativity and personal development in people's lives and so the online beginner ukulele courses took off and the rest has evolved since then.


I am a respected musician, performer, music teacher and community practitioner, having trained as a music workshop facilitator with Community Music London and a choir leader with Susie Ro. 

I have performed at over 60 different venues and festivals in the UK, including Glastonbury Festival!

I have experience of teaching adults, children and whole class ukulele as well as leading early years music sessions and interactive performances in schools, care homes, hospices and hospitals.

Music has brought much joy to my life and I feel called to share my skills and knowledge with others wishing to explore their musical creativity.

SONGWRITING

- A powerful tool for processing and expressing emotions, spreading messages and telling stories -

I am a songwriting coach and workshop leader offering a range of techniques to help you find your creative flare and to uncover the songwriter within. 

Visual art, guided meditation and free-writing (inspired by the Artists Way by Julia Cameron) are often incorporated to help you unlock and explore your creative writing. Focusing on feeling rather than theory whilst still cultivating the key elements of songwriting, I draw wisdom from my own experience and training to deliver inspiring and innovative workshops.

SINGING

- We are born natural singers, sometimes we just need to rediscover our voice -

Did you know that singing is scientifically proven to boost your emotional, physical and mental health?

Whether you've performed a few gigs or you're an absolute beginner, I will share my techniques and encouragement to get you feeling confident. You'll be given guidance in breath and muscle discipline and body posture whilst covering a range of songs. Meditation, breath work and light yoga stretches may also be incorporated into lessons.

I also regularly facilitate 'Sing for the Soul' workshops online and in person.

WORKSHOPS

~ Music is a universal language that brings strength to communities. It is a powerful tool for processing and releasing emotions and creating connection amongst ourselves, other humans and nature ~

FOREST SINGING REVIEW

I came to see Kitty for singing lessons after decades of believing I "couldn't sing" because that's what I had been told. Kitty's unique approach to teaching, which combines being in nature with meditation and pranayama as well as warm up exercises and singing practise, really helped me to feel relaxed, grounded and in my body. I immediately felt comfortable and knew I was in good hands. With Kitty's encouragement and belief, I really enjoyed lessons and in a short time really noticed a difference in my confidence. And it turns out... I can sing!

UKULELE COURSE REVIEW

Kitty is a brilliant ukulele teacher. She's so friendly, patient and welcoming in her lessons and that makes you feel at ease. I was an absolute beginner and after just one lesson I was confident playing a simple song. She provides excellent handouts so you can continue to practice at home. I had so much fun in Kitty's ukulele course and would definitely recommend it to everyone!!

SONGWRITING WORKSHOP REVIEW

What a truly beautiful and inspiring workshop!
I can’t thank Kitty enough for letting me be a part of it and sharing so much knowledge and wisdom with me and all the others in the workshop.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself and the time Kitty allowed us to write, free write, take notes, spark ideas and share thoughts with one another. I learnt a lot and felt so happy and inspired to be songwriting again. I highly recommend Kitty’s workshops, she’s such a beautiful, kind and talented soul with so much knowledge and wisdom to share. Thanks for this amazing opportunity Kitty, I can’t wait for the next one!
