Singing is my passion, and unlocking vocal potential is my superpower!

Singing Lessons

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

After the introductory goal-setting lesson, each lesson begins with a physical warm up, breathwork and vocal warm up. Then we work on your song, and some relevant technical exercises. The end of the lesson covers your practice-plan and goals for the following lesson.
I love helping students to unlock their true potential, and years of experience have helped me to become a great "trouble-shooter". Breathwork is the foundation-stone of my teaching philosophy...and once we've got that working for you, you'll find you can far-exceed your own expectations. Obviously, a dedicated practice plan will make a huge difference to your results, and I'll work with you to create a plan which will fit into your lifestyle.

Conservatoire-trained myself, I have an extensive performing and teaching career, including opera, early/baroque music and musical theatre. I teach a classical technique, which incorporates vocal health, strength, stamina and flexibility, allowing the student to safely sing any genre they choose. My students range from cathedral choristers (Y4 upwards) to mature rock singers (60+) and professional opera singers. I can help you to overcome whatever obstacles may be holding you back - vocal injury, confidence, difficulty with high notes,running out of breath and vocal tiredness are some of the more common reasons people choose me as their teacher. Most importantly, singing is fun and has a huge impact on our physical and mental well-being. If you've been wanting to try lessons, but lack the confidence then you can trust my years of experience.
Here's an example :- Pam called me wanting lessons. As a child, she'd been told to "just mime" in the school choir which had understandably wrecked her confidence. Now 70+, she was tackling her "bucket-list". She told me she dearly wanted to be able to sing Danny Boy, but believed she was "tone deaf" and "unteachable". Her voice certainly had character thanks to years of smoking. But with lots of breathwork, and dedicated practice, she knocked Danny Boy out of the water in 2 months. By the end of 6 months, she was dipping her toe into opera. Another few months on, and she was singing Carmen's arias and winning talent competitions.
Covid altered my perception of online learning, and I discovered that many students flourished. Living in a rural community, for example, shouldn't be a barrier to having access to top quality tuition, so my new mission is to provide online and affordable lessons for anyone, anywhere.
As Ella Fitzgerald famously said, "the only thing better than singing is more singing."
