« In the eight months I've been having lessons with Amanda my tone quality and accuracy have improved much more quickly than I ever expected. I have a much richer sound than before (and in tune!). She quickly found a good way to pitch lessons for me and I've become much more confident and capable for it, without ever losing the fun of singing. »

Experience

I have taught singing and music in schools in the South Yorkshire area. I have taught at the Sheffield Music Academy where I ran an 8 piece harmony group, and voice classes. I also coach a number of regular private students.

A singer and musician from an early age, I have a variety of music-making experience including solo performances at weddings and events, lead and backing vocals in a 10-piece blues band, lead vocals in a jazz trio, and public performances in a gospel choir. I received regular training from a renowned London-based vocal coach who trained singers from the West End shows. I also completed a course at London's Vocaltech Music School. I have recording experience including writing and singing my own material, as well as training in the basics of sound engineering.

I have an up-to-date CRB check, which I'm happy to present on request at the first lesson.

In the eight months I've been having lessons with Amanda my tone quality and accuracy have improved much more quickly than I ever expected. I have a much richer sound than before (and in tune!). She quickly found a good way to pitch lessons for me and I've become much more confident and capable for it, without ever losing the fun of singing.

Amanda has been a great vocal coach in guiding me through the foundation of soulful RnB vocal singing and she's been very patient and encouraging in helping me discover the true character and potential of my voice. And I hope she can continue to be there in helping me achieve my goal of a long-term singing career because this is what I love doing.

H
Hill, student

I have thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Amanda as they have given me more confidence in myself and to sing more! I especially like the way the lessons are tailored towards whatever area of singing I would like to concentrate on.

H
Harbir, manager

Recently started lessons with Amanda but have noticed a difference already. She is giving me confidence in my ability to sing and her encouragement is inspiring. I look forward to my lessons every week.

Great teaching methods have encouraged me to be more expressive when performing a song and attach true meaning and feelings to the lyrics.

Fantastic singing tutor, Amanda has helped me as much with stage presence as she has technically. Having singing lessons with Amanda has helped me fully understand my voice and I know I've improved leaps and bounds!
