In terms of my teaching method, the most important part is understanding what the student wants to achieve and what they enjoy doing. Once that is clear I will cater my lessons and material for the student. In addition to this there will be warm ups, cool downs and other technique exercises for safety and preservation of the voice.
I am a professional singer/songwriter and musician seasoned in Jazz, Soul and Pop music. I've collaborated with a variety of musicians including Bastille (Pop), The Wombats ( Indie Pop), Omar Lyefook (Soul), Jamie Lidell (Soul) and many more. I use my versatility and experience to offer classes catered to the student. After teaching a wide range of students over the past 3/4 years, I can confidently say that they improve after every class.

Kianja has been an incredible teacher. After each lesson, I come away feeling I've learned so much. She is kind and patient, but pushes you to achieve your best and reach your full potential. Can't recommend enough!
Kianja is a great teacher. Very experienced, and at the same time very easy-going and encouraging. With her guidance I've gained a good fundamental understanding of how to sing, and have noticed improvements in my singing voice and technique since starting lessons with her. Highly recommended!
