Marianna - Blackheath - Singing

Methodology

Hello! My name is Marianna Suri and I am a soprano and a voice teacher with over ten years of experience in teaching. I am passionate about the voice and I enjoy tremendously helping singers explore the potential of their voice.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Classical Voice, Vocal Pedagogy, Lyric Diction and Musical Theatre.

I was a recipient of several Merit Scholarships from all three of the Universities I attended including a full two year scholarship to complete my second Master's Degree in Vocal Pedagogy. I have also participated in various master classes and opera courses in Italy, Germany and the US.

I charge £35/hour and £25/per 45-minute lesson. Travelling expenses apply when I have to travel to teach and depend upon the distance. Special arrangements can be made for small groups of two/three students. Fees will vary according to the size of the group. There is a 24 hour cancellation policy otherwise the full fee of the lesson will be charged.

I can do online tutoring for Lyric Diction and Vocal Pedagogy. I can also give short online singing sessions as a top-up for regular lessons.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

If you want a safe, experienced and passionate teacher to help you discover your voice I am the person for that! I love to sing and teach singing and what ever your goal in regards to singing is, I have the knowledge and ability to help you achieve it. I like to teach in a relaxed and straight forward way and give information that is tangible and easily applied but most importantly I like to make the lessons fun and interactive! Together we will explore your voice step by step and build your confidence so you can become the best singer you can possibly be!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have worked as a professional soprano in the US and Europe with various orchestras and opera companies. Past performing highlights include the performances of the roles of Mimi, Miss Jessel, Pamina, Inez for the Pafos Aphrodite Festival, Countess Almaviva and Donna Anna for the Cyprus Opera Organization and the performance of Pierrot Lunaire as Sprechistimmer. In concert I have appeared as a soloist for the Oratorio 'Te Deum' with the Cyprus Youth Symphony Orchestra and in Gloria's Vivaldi with the Erie Philarmonic among others. An avid recitalist, I have done numerous thematic recitals spanning from German Lieder, to French Melodie to American Art Song to contemporary new works. Most recently I appeared with the Cyprus Youth Symphony Orchestra as a soloist for a concert dedicated to the life and work of Tchaikovsky and I also appeared in a collaborative new work titled Fear Industry for two actors and a soprano.
As a voice teacher I have worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant in Classical at the Ohio State University, an Adjunct Professor of Classical Voice at the University of Nicosia, a Singing Teacher at the Nicosia Music Lyceum and most recently as a Singing Teacher at Bird College and Enfiled Music Service. I have a special interest in the developing and changing voice of adolescents and have guided and 'build' successfully the voices of many young singers.
In addition to teaching one-on-one voice lessons I also have experience teaching class voice, vocal pedagogy, diction for singers, studio class and small ensemble for voice.

Yes I do have an up-to-date DBS.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I did most of my training the US where I had the opportunity to work with some of the most important voice teachers, vocal coaches and conductors internationally. My past voice teachers have included Kathleen Kaun, Robin Rice and Louisa Jonason and some of the vocal coaches I worked with were Thomas Jaber, Michael Franciosi and Ed Bak. I also had the opportunity to work with world renowned conductors such as James Gaffigan, Hans Graf, Cristian Macelaru and Levi Hammer. Lastly, I have been in master classes with Martina Arroyo, Mark Rucker, Mikael Eliasen and John Moriarty to mention a few.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My students are a good mix of beginners, advanced students and people who love to sing. I have students that are teenagers, young adults, older students as well as young professionals getting ready to launch their careers. Previous students of mine have been accepted to the Voice Departments of the University of Aberdeen, the Royal Holloway, the University of Glasgow,the Edinburgh Napier University, the Hague Conservatory and the Vienna Conservatory among others and have had numerous successes with ABRSM and Trinity College London grade examinations.

Mrs Suri made me find something that I had that I never knew existed: a Classical /Lyrical Tenor voice. Mrs Suri is an excellent tutor she has a lot of patience, knowledge of repertoire and is willing to give you everything to make you a better singer. I highly recommend Mrs Suri for classical singing lessons as she will never let you down. It's because of her that I am currently in New York getting ready for opera auditions. Thank you for everything Mrs Marianna Suri.

Mrs. Suri is always very giving, generous and supporting as a teacher and as a person. She knows what repertoire is suitable for my voice and always pays attention to what my voice needs to progress. Her fun exercises and the way she explains what exactly is going on while singing are very precise. Her passion for opera gave me motivation to work hard and respect and admire opera as an art form.
