Roisin QuinnSenior Diploma Lecturer, Vocals
Roisin’s first steps in the music industry were in music publishing, before she embarked on her freelance career, gaining experience as a solo vocalist, session singer, lead vocalist and solo pianist, performing a wide range of music from classical, jazz and folk to soul, R&B, reggae and blues.
Over the years, she’s worked with many vocalists, pianists, schools, colleges, choirs and ensembles in a variety of settings. Being involved in a diverse range of projects has provided her with invaluable experience to draw upon in her teaching and leading role.
Roisin Quinn is currently musical director of Essex Youth Jazz Voices, Harlow U3A choir and St Marks vocal group, and is leading a large-scale choir project for the Sounds of Essex Festival. She works closely with Essex Music Services and recent projects have included arranging and directing the vocals for cutting-edge composition Grown: A Grime Opera, written by Max Wheeler and Eyez.
Roisin is involved in all areas of education but has particular interests in current voice research, accent, songwriting, copyright and social mobility within the arts, so regularly attends courses and conferences related to these topics. Songwriting has been her most recent creative focus and her debut album is due for release later this year. Roisin Quinn is a Senior Diploma Lecturer teaching on our music performance – vocals course.
