I’m a true believer that everybody can sing! Whether you are a professional singer or just love it and want to discover more about what you can do with your voice.
I am experienced singing teacher and vocal coach, having worked with children, adults, professional singers and actors alike. The vocal techniques that I teach, incorporating Classical and Estill methods (a method preferred by musical theatre singers), provide a solid fundamental grounding which supports the natural sound of each individual voice, whatever style you want to sing, from classical to pop.
From my singing studio in St Agnes I provide individual singing lessons, either half hour or hour, and small groups. I also include general musicianship in all of my lessons, so you will get to understand the language of music as well as learning the techniques to allow you to sing confidently, whether that is publically, or in the privacy of your own home! For those students who would like to work towards a specific goal then you can choose between ABRSM or Rock School exams.
As a vocal coach I work with actors and singers in preparation for a specific goal, be that an audition or specific repertoire for a performance. I help with vocal production, breathing and, together with the singer, get the style and expression of the piece working in a way that the voice is free to cope with the demands of the specific role or piece that we are preparing. By working in this intense way I am able to get the individuals voice secure, even if they have never had a singing lesson before.
I have worked successfully in this way with a number of actors and singers, most notably with Tim Minchin helping him prepare the role of Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar to great critical acclaim.
