I am a voice coach, Kirtan leader and musician offering retreats, chanting and voice workshops.
Gavin Frank is a singer, voice facilitator, Kirtan leader, musician, recording artist and composer. He has been involved in music since he was 10 years old and went on to sing in the church choir as a boy. After completing a Classical Music Degree in 1990, (where he studied Free Composition), Gavin travelled around the world exploring festivals, different communities, arts projects, busking and street performance. After a period of integration of these experiences he began training with Chloe Goodchild in 1999 and studied with her for 10 years. He has also studied south Indian Carnatic singing at the Bhavan Centre as well as various workshops with Tim Jones. He is currently studying with renowned singer Nicki Wells.
Gavin has been empowering people from all walks of life to find, embody and express the fullness of their own true voice for more than 20 years. He is based in Oxford facilitating day/weekend voice workshops, individual voice sessions and various themed groups such as:
Gavin also performs and records in the duo Madrum and they have produced 2 CDs Marrakech and Soma as well as tracks available for download. Gavin is in the process of learning recording, and some projects in the pipeline are a chant CD as well as more original songs and improvisations. Madrum are due to release a new album in 2022.
He recently performed at the Barbican, London with renowned choreographer and dancer Darren Johnston.
Gavin is committed to expanding his work universally and hopes to travel more extensively through his music and voice facilitation. He also plays several instruments including Indian harmonium, piano, guitar, drum and oboe.
Although Gavin is based in the UK, he is open to working in different areas of the UK/Europe/the world, so if you would like to organise a workshop for him do get in touch.
