Singing makes you feel great! The connection with your breathing - your core - and making a wonderful noise is powerful stuff! I can help you feel more confident and find the joy in whatever kind of singing you want to do.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
Singing of all genres. I believe that good technique is relevant for all styles of singing.
- I am a great believer in breath being the foundation of all good singing technique.
- I won't change your vocal personality but improved technique will allow to you do and express everything you want.

I have recorded many CDs of film, Broadway and pop songs.
As a session singer I've sung backing vocals on many CD recordings, TV shows and adverts and Hollywood movie soundtracks. (I am the voice of Autoglass - for which I apologise!)

"Thanks again for these wonderful days. Your presence made a huge difference to the recording, it was not only important but essential"
"Thank you for encouraging me into my own voice, the one have missed.
Musicians tend to judge a voice by type, an expectation which only expresses themselves"
