Highly qualified London-based music teacher, with over ten years teaching experience, offering singing, piano and music theory lessons.

Methodology

I focus on healthy singing regardless of repertoire, confidence and creativity. I have an excellent understanding of the mechanisms of the voice and technique which I incorporate into my lessons, generally learning this through learning of repertoire. I can prepare students for exams, auditions or just for fun, and tailor my lessons to the individual.

Background

I am a trained opera singer who has performed throughout the UK, as well as France, Spain, Italy, Germany, China, Canada and the USA. I hold three degrees in music, with an emphasis on vocal performance, and have over ten years experience as a music teacher. I've previously worked with community choirs, including time as a Rock Choir leader, and taught one-to-one lessons, small groups, and classroom lessons. I currently work as a vocal coach for UpBeat Music working with individuals and bands. I teach any age and standard for singing and offer classical, music theatre and pop and teach up to advanced. For piano I am ideal for beginner and intermediate students and I teach up to Grade 5 theory

PERSONAL STATEMENT

As a highly experienced educator and animateur I believe in creating an environment where students can use their initiative and develop and expand their knowledge in a way that suits their own unique learning preferences. In music I balance technique, musicality and interpretation and aim to tailor my lessons to the student’s overall needs and the needs of the moment.
