Louise - Sutton Coldfield - Singing

Methodology

Your voice is your most powerful tool for communication. bY gaining knowledge and control of your voice I believe you gain more knowledge and empower yourself.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach singing, including technique (, relaxation, resonance, breath control, placing ) and performance skills. I also deliver workshops for spoken voice projection and how to protect the voice in a stressful work environment

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I graduated from Birmingham Conservatoire with both teaching and performance diplomas.

- How much do you charge?

Prices start from £28.00 for beginners and under 16's. Older students often choose to book one hour lessons and come bi-weekly the price come down to £35.00 if coming twice a month or more. I ask pupils to pay for lessons at the time of booking. Short intensive courses are priced according to needs. I can take card payment over the phone, bacs or paypal.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my studio at home in Four Oaks Birmingham, West Midlands near Sutton Coldfield or travel to you if you are booking a workshop. I also currently teach in a school near Coleshill.

- When are you available?

I am available every week day and some evenings until 7 pm. Not available at weekends

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all levels, ages and abilities.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

associated board and trinity exams . Also diplomas

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can tutor online via facetime or skype. Just contact me to arrange and pay for a time slot to suit.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I was a very shy person as a child. I didn't feel successful in anything. Singing gave me an opportunity to be different, to make a change in myself. Why not see if it does the same for you.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught privately for 20 years and working as a singing teacher for Wolverhampton University and Warwickshire County Music. I enjoy teaching people who don't find singing easy and those with emotional or mental issues including ADH and autism. I teach a lot of actors and dancers who need to sing for competitions and auditions.

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

I have a CRB certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained with John Carol Case MBE, Janet Edmunds and Pamela Cooke MBE.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the MU

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have students at all levels of ability, not all read music. My students comprise of professional actors, dancers, school children, professional musicians, teachers and amateur performers. Some work towards exams or auditions some come to gain confidence or just for pleasure. We work musicals , operas or pop and jazz according to the needs or interests of the student. I usually organize two concerts per year for my students to give an opportunity to perform in front of anaudience. I enjoy teaching people who don't find singing easy as much as those who are naturals.

Louise makes the technique of singing and the individual talents of her students shine through. Her approach is friendly and motivating, and her entertaining personality means that the lessons have both an enjoyable flow and are packed with technique. I was able to apply the lessons learned from day one, noticing direct results immediately.

Just thought I would drop you a line to thankyou for the way in which you have inspired my daughter Aliyah in her singing lessons. Not only has she grown in confidence, but she really has grown as a person in her approach to songs now. Although she is only eleven I have seen how excited she gets when her lesson is nearing. She herself has said she loves the lessons because, you are patient, encouraging, always ready to listen, and above all fun to work with.

I want to thankyou on a personal note for being willing to work with someone so young, as she was only 10 when she started. Its always refreshing when you meet someone who is professional, but approachable and able to adapt to their audience. Long may it continue and thanks again.

Louise is highly knowledgable in many styles, and most importantly supports her students to discover their own. I'd highly recommend working with Louise whether you are a beginner or more experienced and want to further your skills- you can only get better when working with Louise!

Louise is a fantastic teacher. She has the ability to turn students weaknesses to strengths. She taps into a students potential with ease and I have benefitted greatly form my lessons. I have improved to a level I didn't think was possible. I would recommend her to anyone learning to sing

I have found my lessons have given me more ability not only in my singing but also in the classroom where high noise levels can put strain on my voice. I now have a set of quick and easy warm up exercises to help get my voice in shape for the day ahead and practical tips and techniques to help see me through.

J
John

I'd recommend her to anyone who is using their voice in a vocally stressful work environment or those who simply want to increase their confidence. It not just about singing. These are lesson in coping with life. I have learnt about resonance, projection , benefits of clear diction and expression. Advice on posture has not only improved my vocal strength but given me more confidence in all aspects of my daily life.
