Ashley Stafford (Counter-tenor)

Born: England

The English counter-tenor, Ashley Stafford, was trained at the European School of Osteopathy (ESO) in Maidstone, Kent and graduated in 1994. Before setting up the BushMaster Natural Health Practice with Peter Chappell in 1996, he worked at the Stanlake Practice in Shepherds Bush.

Before training as an osteopath, Ashley Stafford was a full-time professional singer, and, alongside his osteopathic practice, he is a professor at the Royal College of Music, London, as well as teaching singing privately. His work as an osteopath and teacher takes him regularly to Vienna and Salzburg.

As a post-graduate, Ashley Stafford has continued to develop his osteopathic skills, particularly in the field of cranial technique. He is particularly interested in the integration of vocal and instrumental performance with the principles of osteopathy, which calls for a holistic relationship between the structure of the body and all its functions. To this end, alongside his work at BushMaster he runs performance workshops for singers and instrumentalists both in the UK and abroad.
