Elaine Wilson - Musical Director

Music is a cornerstone of Elaine's life. Aged nine, she joined her first choir, where she later became organist aged only 11. At Boston High School, she belonged to various choirs enjoying the annual BBC Radio School Choirs Competitions in Leeds. Whilst a music undergraduate, She sang with the Huddersfield Choral Society and enjoyed singing in The Proms and of course, all those Messiahs. Students were expected to have a third 'study', so with Clarinet being her first and Piano her second, Elaine took formal singing lessons for the first time.

After Graduation and a short spell of music classroom teaching , she moved to Cambridge & sang with various choirs, also teaching clarinet & piano, whilst embarking on a career in the NHS, gaining qualifications of SRN and RMN, training in Psychiatry and Midwifery and eventually gaining a Health Visiting Diploma and after 35 years practise and various senior Community roles, Elaine left the NHS.

Next she undertook a new Teaching Diploma and established Pheonix Music Tuition in Lincoln, gained an Advanced Diploma level in Counselling at Lincoln College and began using various forms of music therapy with young people and adults who wish to learn an instrument for a range of personal reasons. Elaine continues this valuable work today. Elaine also founded Phoenix Clarinet Choir as a spin off from her music tuition. Moving to Nottinghamshire in 2010 and her family almost grown up, Elaine soon felt she was needing to join a choir again for relaxation and pleasure. In 2012 The New Greasley Singers gave her a very warm welcome and another chapter began.
