« Fran is a fantastic singer, she studied at Leeds College of Music, both to graduate with honours, and for a post graduate Masters degree. But she goes well beyond this - she performs regularly both online and live. That tells you that she will inspire you or your child. She's an excellent teacher. She is patient and caring, and because she understands the physiology, and the theory of harmony, she can help beginners as well as divas. I can recommend her very strongly »

Leeds based singer-songwriter with First Class Masters in music gives singing and songwriting lessons

Methodology

I provide vocal coaching for a range of abilities - from absolute beginner to performing singers.
I often split my lessons into two parts. One half of the lesson will be spent focusing on developing technical abilities and the other half working on repertoire (performance and vocal technique).
I can also provide advice and coaching on songwriting.

Experience

I am a singer-songwriter with 10 years of performance experience, a First Class Mmus in Music (with a focus on songwriting and performance) and a First Class BA Hons in Popular Music (Singing) from Leeds College of Music.
I have taught a handful of one-to-one students over the last couple of years and I'm enthusiastic about helping others improve their singing and songwriting.
Students' confidence and skills have blossomed as a result of lessons with me and this has helped them to perform better, including in school performances.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £35/h

Details

Fran is a fantastic singer, she studied at Leeds College of Music, both to graduate with honours, and for a post graduate Masters degree. But she goes well beyond this - she performs regularly both online and live.
That tells you that she will inspire you or your child.
She's an excellent teacher. She is patient and caring, and because she understands the physiology, and the theory of harmony, she can help beginners as well as divas.
I can recommend her very strongly

Francesca is a superb tutor who I would recommend to anyone. She has taught my daughter who is blind and has always taught in the best way for her to build up that trust which as a mum was a pleasure to watch. Francesca was very easy to work with and very understanding and once my daughter can stop being shielded from COVID-19 lessons with her I hope will carry on xx

Fran is a total professional. My daughter felt at ease with her straight away. Fran took time to find out the level of skill my daughter had and her prefered approach to learning. Lessons were planned taking this personal knowledge into consideration and real improvements were made as a result. Besides being an excellent tutor, fran is also warm and friendly. I cannot recommend Fran highly enough.
Thankyou. Sally and Isabelle.
