- Do you have a personal message for students?

I tailor singing lessons to each students specific requirements. Each students lesson plan will vary slightly according to what areas need more attention. Lessons are based around the core rules of singing correctly (technique) - using your diaphragm, controlling your breathing, working through the vocal break and aligning the voice, working on pitch & tone and many other exercises that will help you develop the unique qualities of your voice. Once you have learned the fundamental skills to singing correctly, you can then apply them to any singing style you wish!

As a vocal coach, I've taught just about everyone, just about everywhere — from drama students to seasoned professionals, in studios and classrooms, on stage and on sand dunes (true story).
