- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I do not tutor online as I do not feel that it is effective.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
SINGING - I teach from a basis of classical technique as it is the best groundwork for any style of singing and I can then help to colour the voice accordingly to help with the personal style/choice of the singer.
ACTING/PERFORMANCE - I teach acting in a very naturalistic and realistic way, designed to enhance the actors natural skills and personality. I have taught many amateur actors wanting help with performing in their local Drama group/Society to professional performers struggling with audition nerves as an actor or as a singer.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I do not have a CRB but can obtain a personal one if required.
