I am a versatile and experienced singer studying in a world-class Royal conservatoire - Royal Northern College of Music pursuing my four-year Popular Music bachelors degree. I offer one on one singing lessons in Manchester for both female and male singers, professionals and beginners 12 years of age and older. I help people build their technique, repertoire, prepare for their singing auditions, live performances and give guidance in stagecraft. I also work with students who want to sing just for fun or learn few songs for a special occasion and do it as a hobby for their own enjoyment.
Completing my forth year at the RNCM, I have a wide range of experience in performance, singing, stagecraft, artistic vision and image building as well as public presentation skills. I had amazing opportunities to work with high-class worldwide known vocalists, vocal coaches and I always try and use their advice\experience when teaching my students, adapt and alter it to their individual needs. I am prepared to teach everybody who wants to become a professional, deepen their knowledge or sing and just have a great time! I am interested in a variety of music genres from Jazz, Blues, Soul to Pop, R&B and Electronic music, but I always let my students choose what they want to perform.
I am eager to learn myself, hence I always introduce new techniques to my students and experiment with new exercises and ways of singing\practicing. I work on breathing, posture, efficient warm ups, mix-voice, blending ranges, vocal stamina, discovering one’s unique voice abilities and qualities. I love using Sadolin singing techniques. After the student and I make sure there is a good technical base, I introduce the work with vocal colour, different styles of singing, personality in voice, delivery, performance, stage character and fine details of stagecraft.
I am flexible and always try to make people feel free and relaxed when working with me, be it doing exercises or presenting their work and progress. Having said that, I am always honest and never afraid of giving constructive criticism and feedback as I feel it is immensely important for one's professional growth.
As every individual has different needs and capabilities, I easily adjust and choose a best way to approach and interact with each and one of them. If they have a preferable way of learning, I am always open for suggestions and changes. Also, I like to get to know the person and discuss their goals, expectations, targets.
I strongly believe that working hard is a key to success, so I will make sure we do that together and achieve great results!
I am working on a lot of music projects as well as studying, therefore I don't have a lot of students. I used to work with 5-6 students per week prior to me moving to Manchester. I helped some people prepare for their music exams, concerts, gigs, live performances. I also worked with students who want to sing just for fun and do it as a hobby rather than a career.
