Jessica - Aston Cantlow - Singing

Methodology

Jessica Friend BMus Hons Vocal student studied at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, training includes Vox Integra and National Youth Theatre Epic Stages.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I primarily teach singing, whether that be classical ABRSM or Musical Theatre Auditions or even singing pop songs to improve confidence, each lesson is different for each singer and my skill set enables me to tailor each lesson to the individual and/or group. Although my main study is singing, through working in the profession and numerous experiences I have been able to transfer my skills into other subjects, for example drama workshops or piano lessons.

Singing, piano, drama, theory... take a look at the list of subjects on my profile. My main study is Singing - Classical, musical theatre, pop, jazz and more - ABRSM, Trinity, Trinity Rock and Pop, LCM Pop, LCM Musical Theatre and Rockschool. Piano - Classical ABRSM, LCM and more ( I am open to many genres). Drama - monologues, characterisation, preparing for a role, auditions I can combine singing and drama lessons, especially for musical theatre. I can prepare students for exams, auditions, performances or even teach a lesson just for the pure enjoyment of that subject. If you are unsure of whether I can teach what you want just get in touch!

My students range from 6 to 70 years old, all abilities welcome from beginner to intermediate.
