My name is Stella, I am 24, have a First Class Honours Degree in Music (Contemporary Vocal performance) and am an active professional singer songwriter. My last cover of 'Get Ready' by The Temptations is featured on the currently airing Thomas Cook ad. I have passed experience in classical training as well as musical theatre and can play guitar and piano to an intermediate level.
I like to approach my singing lessons holistically and really bring it back to the connection you have with music and yourself. The lesson structure would depend on each individual student's needs i.e. some may want to focus on nailing their favourite song, some may want to write and record their own song! I am guided by you and then tailor the experience so you can get the most out of it.
I'm free spirited but appreciate that results come from determination. I believe in fun and relaxed teaching but having been a difficult student myself, use motivation and inspiration to get my students to push themselves to the next level.
I have only had one official student in my experience so far, and I supported her whilst she participated in a singing competition, over Skype. Online tutoring was very hard but we got there and she won the competition.
I have been taught by coming up to 10 tutors to date so have a great idea of what a lesson requires and how they should flow.
Travel expenses will depend on the distance of the student
