Daniela - Clapham Junction - Music

Methodology

You have a right to be heard! Singing is a joyous expression of who you are.... find a way of releasing your voice with ease and simplicity.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Good strong vocal technique... I was trained (after leaving music college) by an amazing 'old-school' classical singing teacher, Anne Wood; who had been an opera singer & was famous for running her own company (with composer Benjamin Britten), The English Opera Group in the 1940's/50's. She gave me a solid understanding of how to get the very best out of your voice, while protecting it from any damage.
Developing such a life-long technique, which works for any style of singing, is a gradual process which takes time and consistency. Once achieved, it will mean the performer can get through any situation with confidence. It changed my life, well over 20yrs ago, and I have never looked back as a singer!

I also teach: song choice & interpretation, microphone technique, writing out song charts in your key, basic music theory, songwriting skills, simple improvising methods, help with part singing for vocal group work.

I also take vocal workshops; and am planning a series of workshops combining Alexander Technique & singing with world renowned teacher, Nelly Ben-Or.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I was surrounded with music since birth; my mother is a concert pianist and my father was a conductor (I first sang as a child in his choir). My musical education started, with me drawing pictures underneath my mother's piano while she was practising! Having been taken to many concerts throughout childhood, I discovered musical theatre and then jazz in my teens.

I studied on several of the Wavendon Allmusic Courses run by John Dankworth & Cleo Laine.
Took the 2yr Jazz Singers Course at Parkshot

Was awarded a scholarship for the Advanced (post graduate) Jazz Course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama

I also studied acting on the 2yr Acting Course at Questors Theatre;
and at the Actors Institute (gaining a place to study at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art)

I have also grown up with regular lessons in the Alexander Technique, as my mother is one of the leading teachers in the world now. I had many lessons with Patrick MacDonald, Shoshana Kaminitz, and with my mother, Nelly Ben-Or.
I incorporate this experience into my approach as a singer & singing teacher.

- How much do you charge?

My fees are usually £50 for an hour.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at home in Wandsworth, South West London.
I live in the middle of Wandsworth, Putney & Southfields.

[Nearest tube: East Putney (zone 2 on District Line), nearest overland: Wandsworth Town. Many different busses stop 5mins away from my house.]

- When are you available?

I teach at different times: daytimes, some evenings, and occasionally at the weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

From teenage upwards... all levels of ability, experience & ambition.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I have taught students preparing for: Music Grades, O-Level, A-Level, Btech, Music/Performance Degrees at Universities & Colleges.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can teach online using Skype, or give advice by email.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Singing is a joyous expression. Good vocal technique should be a simple way of enabling you to express your music... it doesn't need to be complicated!
If it hurts... don't do it! If it feels natural and relaxed, it is probably a good sign.

Come and try one lesson to see if my methods are of interest to you... let me see what you do, and say how I think I can best help you.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

Currently teaching undergraduate students two days a week, at LCCM (the London Centre of Contemporary Music); where I teach band workshops for BMus & Cert HE students, and teach singing & performance techniques to all the first year students.
Also teaching currently at the Roche School, Putney; where I am giving one-to-one singing lessons to the primary school children.
During the 2014/15 academic year I also taught at the Brit School, Croydon a number of times.

I have taught at many different institutions over the past 25yrs including:
Islington & City 6th Form College
Acapella Music Workshop, Islington.
E15 Music Workshop
The City Lit
Morley College
Goldsmiths College
Westminster University
Brunel University
Colchester Institute
WAC Arts, London

I have taught countless private students since leaving the Guildhall, in 1990.

I also taught for 3yrs in Manhattan, New York City (from 2004-2007)

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have an up to date DBS Enhanced Certificate, requested by The Roche School from Wandsworth Borough Council.

I had a CRB check a few years ago when I was teaching at the Colchester Institute.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the Musicians Union, and the actors union Equity.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I teach students of all levels of ability, experience, and ambition. Some students just want to have some fun! Others are professional singers, who are already successfully performing & recording at the top of their fields; including a couple of award-winning singers who want to improve their vocal technique.
