Lorraine - Penge - Singing

Methodology

I'm a friendly holistic teacher who has worked in the field of the arts and live-literature for 17 years. I have been a private tutor for two years.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

SEN: I can work with learning difficulties associated with ASD, ADHD, learning delay, school phobia and stress related learning blocks.

Musicianship/music workshops/vocal techniques: I have been running music based workshops for over ten years and currently teach singing techniques. I studied music technology BTEC level 3, have a good understanding of basic theory for improvisation and played several instruments in various ensembles and bands over the years. Rather than teaching an instrument I can help you connect with your internal musician.

Drama: I've worked using Drama In Education in a number of settings including youth theatre and adult SEN groups. Fundamentally I'm a storyteller and comic and so I now only focus on teaching comedy improvisation, laughter improvisation and clowning.
