« 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. »

Oli Sheffield - Opera - Classical Singing - London - Professional - Vocal Technique - Performance - Auditions - Repertoire

Methodology

I am a trained Opera singer and singing teacher with a particular interest in vocal technique who tutors across London. If you are interested in having a lesson that is both enjoyable and informative; do get in touch for more information.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Singing
Piano
Theory

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I graduated with a First Class Bachelor of Honours degree from the
Royal Northern College of Music where he studied with David
Maxwell Anderson, and gained a Postgraduate Diploma from Trinity
Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance where he was a Kathleen
Robert’s scholar and studied with Joan Rodgers.

Oli has been fortunate to study with such teachers as Yvonne Kenny
and Tim Evans Jones. He has spent time living in Berlin and most
recently New York City where he studied with Arthur Levy.

- Where do you teach?

I only teach in students' homes and will travel to surrounding areas
including: Zones 1-4.

- When are you available?

I am available to teach during the week as well as at the weekend.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and abilites are more than welcome.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

As well as teaching ABRSM and Trinity College London I can also
prepare students for conservatoire auditions, Oxbridge choral
scholarship auditions and university auditions.

Experience

- 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.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Jack LiVigni (London, UK)
Arthur Levy (New York, USA)
Trish McCaffrey (Berlin, Germany)
Mark Schnaible (Oslo, Norway)
Tim Evans Jones (London, UK)
Yvonne Kenny (London, UK)
Joan Rodgers (London, UK)

Working on securing a lower larynx whilst singing. Maintaining a legato line. Not wasting air with heavy aspirated consonants. Working through the grade 5 theory book in preparation for her exam.
