£30 p/h for 1 hour lessons, or £40 for 1.5 hrs from my own home. I offer discount for block bookings of 10 x 1 hour lessons. I do work with small groups of 3 or 4 for a reduced rate from students' homes, and am willing to travel for larger groups of up to 10/12. One to one lessons at students' homes may incur travel charges on top of hourly rate.

I am available Monday through Sunday, both during the day and evenings up to 8pm.

18+ at present.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I'm an intuitive teacher who loves working with all kinds of singers – at all stages – and bringing out the best in people.
So whether you're a complete beginner or an experienced professional, just give me a call, and we can chat about what you'd like to get out of your lessons.
I look forward to hearing from you – and working with you!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been performing as a professional singer on the London jazz circuit for the past 25 years. Venues include 606, Chelsea, Royal Albert Hall, Jazz Room Soho, Ronnie Scotts as well as festivals here and abroad.

I have been teaching privately, one-to-one, since 1993.

I ran jazz vocal workshops and gave private instruction in pop and jazz at Blackheath Conservatoire. I also taught jazz performance workshops for several years at Richmond College. I have tutored school age students in pop, RnB, jazz and theatre and worked with degree level students teaching jazz vocal performance.

Currently, as well as teaching privately, I run my own vocal courses and workshops in Barnes, for groups of up to 12 people.

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

I do not have an up-to-date DBS Certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Lee Gibson at RACC and Louise Gibbs at Goldsmiths College

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Musicians Union

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I teach a wide range of singers who have all sorts of backgrounds and experience. My current students include a jazz singer who sings mostly latin songs and who is working on breath connection for better projection, light and shade; and a blues singer who is working on performance and confidence skills. I also run courses in Jazz Vocal performance for groups of up to 10 people and run specialized workshops i.e. Working with a band / Improvisation / Performance skills

One of the many special gifts that Shireen has is the ability to engender such confidence in her students and that confidence enables us to attain a higher level of range, tone, volume and interpretation. I'm very new to the world of Jazz singing but have learned such a lot from Shireen in such a short space of time that I feel I'll soon be ready to sing in public.

I was preparing a song for an audition. After spending only one hour with her, my confidence improved greatly and she was able to advise on technique etc. Shireen made me feel at ease immediately. I was able to approach the audition and sing with composure and my performance was more polished, something I wouldn't have been able to do without her help".

Shireen is an incredibly perceptive and motivating teacher - she clearly sees what's going on when I am singing, not just in the sense of the performance but actually where I am musically with the song, and the meaning, and how it's resonating in my body. To be taught in this way is very inspiring because it reaches deeper and helps me see that I can sing with my whole body, which ultimately enriches my voice and my performance.
