Chilton Polden Music and Song Group: Eclectic Collective

Polden Village residents told us they would like to have more opportunity to play music locally.  Seed has commissioned Fodo Higginson an experienced music teacher who loves to encourage people to play music to  facilitate this group.

In 2024 the group named their band Eclectic Collective 

All levels of experience are welcome to the sessions including beginners.

You can bring your own instrument and instruments are available to try including a small PA and mics.

Music Group Facilitator – Fodo Higginson

Fodo is a vocalist, rhythm guitarist, performer, voice tutor, and community choir leader. Fodo is an accredited teacher with Vocal Process and teaches vocal improvisation and techniques and musicianship to young people and adults. In 2017 she formed Moorvale CIC offering music sessions in Somerset and the South West.

“For me the key is to working with people as individuals to help everyone develop their own unique style but with a firm grounding in technique.  I know music and singing  can bring joy to people lives and reduce stress. I have taught voice to hundreds of people”. 

“Great Day, can’t believe we wrote a song!”

“Every session there is a lightbulb moment – vocalising in ways I never thought possible. My approach to all the songs I sing has changed for the better.”
