Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance where he was a Kathleen

Oli has been fortunate to study with such teachers as Yvonne Kenny

As well as teaching ABRSM and Trinity College London I can also

- What kind of experience do you have?
I have performed as a professional baritone before changing voice types and performing as a tenor. This has put me in a unique position to help those who are struggling to decide where their voice lies.
I have a strong interest in vocal technique and have travelled to Germany, Norway and America to gain different insights from some of the most respected voice teachers around.
I have taught in schools and music centres across Manchester and London for over 7 years. Since teaching in schools I have established a busy private teaching studio.

Perfect! As well as having two degree's a Bachelor's and Master's degree in classical singing and piano that is verified by Superprof. Oli is a professional practicing soloist. I am forty six years old and I must say that on top of his obvious expertise, Oli is unlike most working professional soloists who may be a tad self absorbed and unable to be altruistic. He is truly devoted to his pupils and a passionate yet gentle natured teacher. I guess you might be lucky enough to find a teacher at an affordable price with all of the above if you search high and low for years but they will definitely not have his light and sweet nature with it. He is clearly quite simply one of the nicest people that I have ever met. I am a particularly complex pupil as well, in recovery from pelvic surgery and orthopaedic and traumatic surgery to the knee + bipolar type two who would have challenged the nerves of a Saint at times but every time that I have wanted to just crawl away and hide under a rock, Oli has come through for me and gone that extra mile to give me, beyond the call of duty, pastoral care and understanding that I have never had. I am an ex professional jazz singer transitioning to classical singing hoping to succeed at a Music Performance degree and I must say that I have never felt in such safe hands.
