Teaching singing for me is a very rewarding job. I teach a technique which can be applied to any style. I work on developing good breath control, resonance and quality of sound. I am also very happy to teach adult beginners who have a fear of singing. I start with simple exercises to warm up the voice, I give my students practise CDs to help build a strong confident sound. Learning a range of songs helps the student to contextulise the various techniques they are acquiring - the more we apply what we are learning the quicker we remember ,
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
The subject I teach is singing, on a one-to-one basis, but I also coach small groups who want to prepare part-songs, madrigals etc.

I only teach adults, from beginners (including those who do not read music) to the more advanced.

- Do you have a personal message for students?
I would say to anyone who has longed to sing to "take the plunge and try it!!" It's so rewarding to achieve the sensation of singing with freedom and confidence - my present students comment on how easy and relaxing they find it is to sing, once they have got into the swing of regular lessons.

I have been teaching singing for 25 years during which time I have given countless individual lessons, run workshops and coached groups.
