Eleanor - Barking - Piano

Methodology

Hello! My name is Eleanor and I am a professional classical singer who loves to teach too! I am a passionate, enthusiastic and supportive teacher with 5 years of experience in both teaching and performing.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach voice lessons to all levels of ability, from very beginners to far advanced. Whilst I was classically trained, I have taught singers in many different styles, including musical theatre and pop style voices.

Piano was my first love and as such I love to teach piano as well as singing. As part of piano lessons I always try to fit in some theory too, something which I feel is sadly skipped over too often.

Having had extensive experience in performance during my own singing career, I can provide lessons in performance skills and presentation, which may be particularly useful if you are looking for lessons in the run up to an audition.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

- MMus in Vocal and Opera Studies, Royal Northern College of Music (2010-2012)
- BMus Hons, University of Manchester (2007-2010)
- Grade 8 Voice (Soprano)
- Grades 4,7,8 Piano
- Grade 5 Theory

- How much do you charge?

I charge £35 an hour, but I don't charge any extra for travelling to your home or for booking a teaching room. An hour long lesson can also be shared by two people (for example, if you have two children who both would like a lesson of half an hour each) without any extra cost.

A half hour consultation lesson can be arranged for £25, but this would have to take place in a teaching room in central London. A consultation lesson is a good idea if you're not sure if singing or piano is for you, and it gives you a chance to meet me and decide if we are a good fit.

- Where do you teach?

If you have a suitable instrument in your home I am happy to travel to most of London in order to teach at your home. However, if you don't have a piano or keyboard at your home, the easiest and most comfortable venue for lessons is at Jacques Samuel Pianos on Edgeware Road.

- When are you available?

My schedule can change from week to week so I teach all days of the week to be as available as possible.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Voice - from age 6 upwards, though younger pupils will be taught general musicianship and theory along with simple, fun vocal technique and songs. More serious singing pupils tend to start learning vocal technique from around age 13.

Piano - from 5 upwards.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

If you have any questions about starting lessons, please don't hesitate to get in touch!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I work as a professional opera and classical music singer, having trained at the RNCM in Manchester. I have worked for companies such as Grange Park Opera in Hampshire and Wexford Festival Opera in Ireland, and closer to home I frequently sing oratorio works with choral societies.

In my teaching practice I have 5 years of experience teaching all ages and abilities, both in voice and piano lessons. I also led a local 'singing for fun' choir for 2 years when they got in touch wanting help with warm ups and suitable repertoire. They enjoyed working with me so much that they bought a keyboard especially so that I could accompany them every week, not just when we were allowed to use the big hall where the piano was kept!

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

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

Royal Northern College of Music
ENO Opera Works

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I teach on behalf of Grange Park Opera in primary schools in Surrey as part of their Primary Robbins scheme.
