Based on my experience of learning, I feel that accessibility, and a relaxed and friendly approach is key to breaking down those language barriers that we all inevitably feel when learning a totally new way of speaking!
It’s exciting, but can also inevitably feel scary. Thats why I approach each individual with care and understanding, catering my lessons to each persons needs/levels.
Bringing material to the lessons, I provide a folder & package for us to build on.
I focus on grammar & rich, accessible vocabulary, getting your head wrapped around the basics, with a mix of practice of speech placement and pronunciation - moving forward in line with the clients progress.
For GCSE/A LEVEL exams (aside from fulfilling all the grammar/speaking requirements), I focus on instilling confidence and understanding, so your exam feels like an exciting step forward to learning language!
I am a native & bilingual French and Portuguese/Brazilian speaker, born in Switzerland. Languages have become a passion of mine, having studied English, Italian, German, Spanish for over 15 years. I recognised this as a skill and decided to share it through teaching!
I studied psychology in Geneva, followed by my pursuit of passion for music.
I am now a singer/vocal coach based in London and am excited to expand in my field.
It was such a great experince to take singing classes with Patrick. I have been terrified of singing in front of people my whole life and he managed to make me feel confortable and at ease. Being able to speak my native language (french) was also a great bonus. During the lesson I was really impressed with Patrick's patience, dedication and attention to detail. It's always great to learn from people that share their passion with the technical knowledge to back it up. After only the first lesson, I felt so much more confident in my singing and learned some great practical tools to use as warm up as well as while I sing to held ground my voice and reach notes I didn't know I could reach . Would recommend to anyone!
Patrick is extremely professional, patient and pleasant to learn from. I have always dibbled and dabbled with singing, but after working with Patrick I am consistently working on my voice. He not only helps you sing better, but he helps you understand why what you will do will help you sing. He really helps you understand your own voice and be able to use it, instead of taking a general approach that you can find in a text book. He makes you feel really comfortable during the session, realising that singing can be something that people are insecure about it, and he works around that brilliantly. I couldn't recommend him enough.
Patrick has been recommended to me via a friend, and I couldn't be more happier with the last few months of teaching.
His teaching method completely suited my needs, and made me 100% more confident about my vocal abilities.
Patrick is an amazing teacher and has a LOT to offer to his students. He works actively in the music industry, so has a lot of great tips to give.
I would highly recommend him. Go for it !!
I first came to Patrick through a recommendation of a friend (also a session singer), and I could not more happier! Patrick is an extremely professional, hard working and joyous teacher. He caters to the exact needs of the students, be it simply to learn how to sing, improve technique or focus on specific learning techniques. Patrick helped me prepare for a West End audition, gain confidence and actually made it a much more happy experience! I since then have kept up my sessions with him as I feel I benefit greatly from the weekly boost! Would encourage anyone and everyone to book a lesson!
Patrick is an amazing teacher! My friend recommended him to me and I feel really comfortable with him. He is relaxed but strict with his teaching and I always feel I learn a lot during our sessions. My singing has really improved since I started going to him. I give Patrick my highest recommendation. /Christin
