Digby Hill has conducted, arranged and composed for several other community choirs and theatre groups such as Voicemale, the Spooky Men of the West, Glyde-InsOne Voice Choir, Coco Youth Theatre, Let's Sing, Camelot Chorale, Working Voices and Parents for Music Kids Choir

Having an interest in teaching has taken him through a number of contrasting experiences:

Private singing tuition, confidence training (TAFE WA's New Opportunities for Women program),
Multi-media, communications and computing (South-East Metropolitan and Challenge Colleges of TAFE),
Business Communication (Curtin University and Curtin International College),

as well as a number of commercial contracts.

Musically, he has an interest in experimenting with World Music traditions and enjoys incorporating techniques such as harmonic singing into his work.

He has been a member of groups like the Spooky Men's Chorale, (the Edinburgh Fringe Festival tours) and the Spooky Men of the West (splinter group) Red Pepper (a cappella rock), Barstools (barbershop), Voicemale, Psallite (mostly Madrigals) Mandela African Choir and Union Cyanide (bad taste R&B band) to name but a few.

In April 2009 he was the facilitator at the World of Multicultural Music workshops at Kobeelya in Katanning.  Working with a group of over 60 people can be a lot like herding cats at times, but he did it without raising his voice (except in song)

But then I reviewed the photos ...
