Mary - Purley - Singing

Methodology

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.
*LEARN WITH A FRIEND* - maybe lessons with a mate will suit you? Discover your voices together and tackle some harmony singing! POA

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I studied Musical Theatre - Drama, Dance and Voice - at Arts Educational.
I have worked for the past 30 years as a concert soloist and as a session singer - a lot of training has been 'on the job'.

- How much do you charge?

Vocal coaching sessions start from £45
Studio based workshops are also available from £60
£10 discount for first taster session

- Where do you teach?

I am based in South London - Purley, near Croydon.
I can also see some students in the West End of London but at an additional charge. POA

- When are you available?

As a freelance singer my availability can vary - but also means I can be pretty flexible but prefer day times and some weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Helping young performers and established professionals is something I can do with confidence given the varied and extensive experience I have.
Some enthusiastic beginners but from 14 years +

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

My teaching experience includes masterclasses around the world and workshops as well as one on one tuition.
We have a professional recording studio so teaching microphone and recording technique is an option and something I am passionate about.
As concert soloist I have performed around the world including in such iconic venues as Carnegie Hall, New York and The Royal Albert Hall, London.
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!)

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

no

- Where and with whom did you train?

My most influential teacher was Mary Hammond at Arts Ed and afterwards but I have also trained with many other terrific teachers.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the Musicians Union and British Actors Equity

"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"
