Derry also teaches singing to groups and musically directs choirs to their full potential. Using vocal techniques to strengthen the individual voice to work and blend in a rich choral sound. Derry has worked with vocal groups of young people who have never sung together in harmony and build their confidence and work as a team, as well as older members of singing groups that sing for fun and to be part of a thriving community.
