« Hannah is a very easy teacher to get on with & makes lessons interesting & fun. I've learnt so much about breathing technique & vocal registrations & especially enjoyed singing duets with Hannah! I feel so much more confident about my singing & the lessons have helped me cope through a very difficult time in my life when I had to leave my job through ill health. I totally recommend lessons as therapy for anxiety & depression. I can't express how good the lessons have made me feel! »

You can lead the lessons and choose the songs that you sing and I will act as a guide and a coach to give you the tools to make your voice something to be proud of!

I will never tell you how you must sound, but instead will facilitate the production of an authentic sound that you like without unnecessary strain, drawing on techniques from various singing models.

I can offer a singer package to include: singing lessons, recording a demo, publicity photos, website design and creation for a very reasonable price.

Singing releases endorphins into the bloodstream so you will feel great after a session!

She grew up in Leicester and Australia and became a professional vocalist in her teens singing and playing guitar in venues in Leicestershire. Her mother had also been a professional singer performing across the UK in the 1960s.

Hannah has performed at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, The 606 Jazz Club, Abbey Road Studios, The Wireless Festival in Hyde Park, Twinwood Festival, Westminster Methodist Central Hall for Her Majesty the Queen and Tony Blair and The Barbican Centre with Dave Brubeck and his Family Quartet.

Since I have started lessons with Hannah, my confidence & knowledge has grown outstandingly. I always had a passion for singing but used to be very shy which is not the case now. Lessons are very enjoyable & can be planned around your personal goals plus I am now have vocal exercises on CD to practice at my leisure to maintain my new skill. My advice to people that are considering lessons with Hannah would be, if you're curious about singing this would be a great way to further explore this interest.

I'm a singer/songwriter performing my own material & was experiencing vocal fatigue & hoarseness after gigs. I use high intensity singing bordering on yelling at time & needed to know how to preserve my voice. I'm also a music teacher in a school & wanted to learn to teach songs & preserve my speaking voice. In just a few lessons my breath control, chest register power & tone have improved markedly. I'd highly recommend Hannah as a coach as you'll learn a solid technique in a relaxed atmosphere.
