Methodology

I'm a professional opera singer with a Masters and Artistic Diploma in classical singing but I also have a strong background in musical theatre. I love inspiring other singers and bringing out the individuals voice and talent.
I have over 10 years teaching experience and many of my students go on to sing in West End Musicals, Opera Houses and music conservatoires across the UK. I have worked with singers on many projects including Montage Theatre Arts, Stagecoach Theatre Company, Music teacher at Monkey Music Chelsea/Westminster, workshops with schools across the UK, and CHANT productions. I was also the Project Manager for the Royal Northern College of Music's Community Outreach Program and has choreographed and directed projects for the Royal Northern College of Music's Youth Perform group. Alongside teaching I work professionally as an opera singer in venues across the UK including Glyndebourne Opera Festival so I have first hand experience of the current music industry.

I've been singing with Anna for a few years now. I love her enthusiasm and how she teaches technical skills. She pushes me to achieve my best but in a fun way. I'm 61yrs old and got a Distinction for my Grade 8 Singing last year. She tailors lessons to genre you are interested in but also challenges me to try new things. I would highly recommend Anna.

Sarah

Anna is a fantastic singing teacher. She is personable and warm and clearly knows her stuff. My daughters (10 & 12) have absolutely thrived in her lessons which are fun yet highly instructive. Their singing has improved beyond measure - as has their confidence. I can highly recommend Anna.

E
Elle

Anna is a kind, patient and highly skilled teacher. She has fantastic knowledge of the voice itself, it’s mechanics and structure which then allows you to develop a solid technique. Anna has been so adaptable throughout lockdown by taking our lessons online and I can’t wait to continue working with her!

Alexandra

I have been having singing lessons with Anna for two and a half years. She has an intricate knowledge of singing technique, works on musical expression and has a very thorough approach.

C
Charlotte

Anna is an enthusiastic and focused singing teacher with the ability to bring out the best in her students. Her lessons are a perfect balance between technical focus, vocal health and performance. By the end of my first lesson with Anna she had already helped me to sing notes I had never thought I could reach before and put me completely at ease. I can’t recommend her enough to anyone looking for a singing teacher!

B
Barnaby

Anna’s lessons are extremely fun and informative. She is such a great and supportive teacher, I always look forward to our weekly lesson.

N
Nielsen

Anna is a great teacher. I have been having lessons for the last year and her knowledge has led me to improve more than ever. She breaks technique down to its very core and is always alert to problems that need to be addressed. She communicates her ideas very well and is also a very nice person, which makes learning a stress free environment. Her rates are very reasonable and I couldn’t recommend her enough!
