Su Grainger


Su is an experienced singer, workshop leader and vocal coach. She is proud to have recently been appointed  official singing teacher and judge for the Liverpool area for the national competition Open Mic Uk      http://www.openmicuk.co.uk/

Su created Singing Our Socks Off to enable people to sing regularly and improve their voices. After running the group for a number of years she realised the effect the groups were having on social, health and well being of her members and how much benefit they were gaining as a result of attending. This prompted Su to turn SOSO into a community interest company which would allow members to be more involved and utilise the financial and business opportunities available to a CIC.

For the past few years Su has been on a journey of learning all she can both about the voice, and leading singing groups. She is a member of the British Voice Association, Sound Sense, More Music and Sing Up and The Natural Voice Practitioner network.

She is a business ambassador for St Helens chamber of commerce and Enterprise UK

Su has attended many personal business development courses and well regarded industry recognised vocal tuition courses. Including Dane Chalfin 21st Century singer and Helen Rowson Estille voice.

As a result she has gained valuable experience in using the most up to date voice techniques recognised by experienced vocal coaches, speech pathologists and speech and language therapists.
