I focus my singing teaching heavily on vocal technique. I believe having good technique and vocal support ensures a more rounded sound and a healthier voice. I tailor my teaching in accordance with age, however only through how I describe the techniques. The core principles and the mechanics of how to use the voice is what I teach to all students. I welcome students of all ability from beginners to advanced.
Having studied a music degree focusing heavily on musical analysis and musicology, I have a grasp of music theory larger than the graded syllabus. I have also completed grades 1-8 theory. Therefore, I believe I am extremely well equipped to teach music theory and stimulate an excitement in the subject as a whole. I welcome all students looking to sit music theory exams up to Grade 5.
I am a university graduate having studied at the junior royal academy of music. I then pursued a degree at Durham University and I am now a singing and music theory teacher, specialising in classical study. I have been teaching choristers at Newcastle Cathedral since April 2018 and have had private pupils in London prior to this.
