Feedback for my Workshops
Reviews of my singing workshops at CityLit
"I recently spent a while improving my Jazz singing at the City Lit Jazz Singers' Workshop, led by the fantastically inspirational Carol Grimes - the only person I can imagine dragging my voice from my boots after a full day at work! I had a fantastic time and can't wait to get back to it."
“I am now in my second year of Jazz1/2. [Carol] and the pianist are a superb couple of really top flight jazz professionals able to share their great knowledge and talent with anyone who has a feeling for jazz and rhythm.
“Carol is special and inspirational and gives her students the benefit of 40 years of singing at the highest level, while Issy is possessed of a natural ability to accompany and help any singer to sound at their best.
“The repertoire is vast and the subject fun and most rewarding.
“I fully recommend any students considering singing jazz to enlist on the course. Fantastic learning and support.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the course, meeting other singers and working with [Carol]. [She] is wonderfully supportive, robust in her feedback and so experienced. She has such a love of jazz that it is contagious. Thank you.”

Sing for Joy
Sing for Joy is a community choir for people with Parkinson's Disease and other conditions, their friends and carers. We are all sorts of ages, types and genders. All that we have in common is that we have an illness, or care for someone with an illness, and that singing with others makes us feel better.
Singing for Joy helps us breathe deeper, speak more loudly and clearly, and feel happier and less alone.
We meet once a week in London. If you would like to find out more, please click here.
Places available with Carol and Issy Postil on piano for all classes starting January 2013 – Monday evenings, jazz singing; Wednesday mornings, rock pop & soul singing.
