Rachel Gerrard

Music has been in my life ever since I can remember. One of my earliest memories is of listening to my Grand Father play the piano and then trying to mimic what I’d heard. This led to me playing pop songs, tunes I’d heard on television and Christmas carols by ear: I would have been about four or five and have been hooked ever since.

After college, I moved to Canterbury and decided to take singing lessons again. I was aware that my voice had matured and I was ready for a new challenge. I found the most wonderful teacher, Abigail Pascoe. Not only did she improve my technique tenfold, she introduced me to Jazz. After my first lesson, she gave me a CD of Ella Fitzgerald and told me to go home and listen to it as she thought my voice would suit this kind of music. I heard Ella Fitzgerald before, but I had never really listened. I sat alone in my bedroom and put on a track at random: it happened to be the astounding live version of How High the Moon. I was hooked
