- Do you have a personal message for students?

Learning to sing should be informative, energising and lots of FUN!

Each pupil will be treated with patience, friendliness and respect. Lessons will consist of technique, style, interpretation and pronunciation. Everyone has an individual and unique voice. Together, we will unlock your full potential, be it with or without examination. Each lesson is recorded so that the pupil can listen back and use it as a practicing tool in their own time.

After my lessons, I hope you will go away with a spring in your step and a song in your heart, giving you more self-motivation, self-discipline, confidence and self-expression.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

As a professional opera singer and experienced singing teacher, I am well placed to offer advice to singers of all abilities. I have worked with some of the leading teachers, singers and repetiteurs in the UK and would like to impart some of that knowledge on to children and adults alike. Previous students have ranged from school children to professional opera singers and musical theatre singers to mature members of a local community choir.

In opera, I have worked for companies including Opera North, Wexford Festival Opera, Opera Ireland Opera Theatre Company, Grange Park Opera and British Youth Opera.

In concert, I have also performed at the Royal Albert Hall, Usher Hall (Edinburgh), National Concert Hall (Dublin) and Salzburg Cathedral.

I am also an active song recitalist, having performed varying recital programmes at St Martin-in-the-Fields, BBC City Halls and the Gulbenkian Foundation (Paris).

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

Yes. Received it in September 2015. (updated every 3years)

- Where and with whom did you train?

My full-time teachers have included Irene Sandford MBE (former Head of Singing at the RIAM), Kathleen Tynan (Head of Opera at the RIAM), Mark Wildman (Head of Vocal Studies at the RAM), Stephen Robertson (Head of Vocal Studies at the RCS, formerly RSAMD) and Raymond Connell.

I have been privileged to work with some of the worlds leading professionals in opera and song including Thomas Allen, Elly Ameling, Wolfgang Holzmair, Graham Johnson (Young Songmakers Almanac), Marie McLaughlin, Ann Murray, Malcolm Martineau, Dennis O'Neill (Wexford Opera), and Sarah Walker (Oxford Lieder).

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

English National Opera
Wexford Festival Opera
Opera North
Buxton Festival Opera
English Touring Opera
Opera de Baugé
Grange Park Opera

British Youth Opera

Oxford Lieder Festival

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I teach singers ranging from all ages and stages in their vocal development. Some are complete beginners who always wanted to sing but never had the time or courage, and others are passionate amateurs who sing in local choirs and would like to develop their technique to help them join more advanced choirs or prepare for solo performances.

I also help more established singers to brush up on their technique and audition preparation.

I also teach at Ibstock Place School in South West London.

I've enjoyed immensely working with Jamie and can feel a noticeable improvement in my singing.

Not wishing to sound like a soap powder commercial, but Jamie gets great results in super quick time. Convinced I was an alto, he had me singing miles above where I thought I could in the very first lesson. Try it and see if you can see the difference...

Jamie is very skilled, patient and motivating. Lessons are pleasant, interesting and fun. I have very much enjoyed working with him this year and look forward to making good progress in the new academic year.
