- Do you have a personal message for students?
Some people are naturally gifted singers, others may have to work at it a bit, but in my experience, making the commitment to learning how to sing is never time wasted. You get to learn a lot about yourself, develop personal qualities like determination and focus, whilst at the same time building your confidence and self belief. My hope is that my students will develop a deep sense of respect for their own unique voices and in doing so, also develop a love of the amazing musical instrument we all have the ability to be! The human voice can produce astounding beauty and when used correctly it can touch us on the most profound emotional and intellectual levels. How incredible is that!
- What kind of experience do you have?
As a professional singer of over 25 years experience, I have toured extensively throughout the UK and Europe. I have been signed to two record labels as a recording artist. Made appearances on Top of the Pops with artists such as The Tony Rich Project, Brian Harvey and Wyclef Jean as a session vocalist as well as several major music publishers including Peer Music and Warner Chappell.
