Hello! I'm a classical singer with two decades of performance experience. I'm passionate about teaching and really enjoy seeing progress in pupils.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
Singing - classical/ musical theatre/ jazz
Academic music related subjects - theory, piano.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
BMus in performance (hons.) from Trinity College of Music.
ABRSM grades in singing, theory and clarinet.
- How much do you charge?
£25-30 for 'non-practical' subjects, £45 for practical.
- Where do you teach?
I usually travel to your home to teach (provided there is an adequate keyboard) but arrangements can be made to use my own home if you'd prefer.
- When are you available?
Any day/time - fully negotiable.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I have taught all ages and all levels but specialise in adults, mostly actors or pop singers, who want to refine their use of the voice and help build up tools to keep it strong and reliable.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
Any ABRSM or Trinity Guildhall exams or other qualifications as appropriate.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
Online tutoring can be arranged for theory lessons via Skype or Facetime but I do believe that there is a strong benefit to face-to-face teaching!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught one-to-one as well as leading group workshops to students aged from 6 to 80+. I have performed in Asia, Europe and extensively around the UK in touring productions since I was 10 years old and have learnt a great deal in this time. Taking signing lessons on a professional level for 10 years has given me a vast amount of understanding which I love to pass on to others. Many teachers can be lax about technique which quickly leads to trouble; I can offer a really solid understanding of how to use the voice and care for it, in speech as well as singing.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
Vocal teachers/coaches have included:- Jihoon Kim (ROH), David Barrell, Ameral Gunson, John Evans, Martyn Hill, Eugene Asti, Mary Hill.
