- Where do you teach?

I like teaching at home. I have a lovely music room, with great acoustic to sing and a Yamaha piano to play.

I am happy to travel.

I am flexible, and am available weekdays and weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I can teach all ages and stages; ambitious professionals and amateur. It is all about discovering your voice.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I was lucky to study with great teachers and I took something precious from each of them; Like a jigsaw puzzle I created my own reliable vocal technique that sustains me through the demands of my international career, I love passing it on to my pupils.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

Over the years I taught dozens of pupils of all ages, privately, in Master-classes and Workshops.
My priority is to care for their emotional well-being, my approach is individual to help fulfil each student individual potential.
In my teaching I cover all aspects like breathing, vocal projection, imagination, articulation, musical interpretation, language coaching, stage craft, care of the voice, preparation to auditions, performances, exams. I also accompany my pupils at the piano during lessons and exams. I always maintain a strong relationship with parents, the supporting mechanism behind every musician.

I am organised, disciplined and self-motivated. Over the years I have been managing my singing career, writing my own business and creative proposals and developed my own projects

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

Yes
