I teach MT, Legit, Classical, Rock and Pop. I work hard to ensure my students understand that each voice is different. I feel it is important to establish your own journey and not to compare yourself to others. I believe each lesson should empower a student to work on strengths and weaknesses and work with each student to find answers to any questions or problems. I believe the heart of singing is about expressing emotions and assist my students in connecting this to if necessary understanding physiologically what is required to achieve different sounds.I like to have fun in my lessons whilst encouraging each student to be the best they can and work hard to achieve maximum results.

Heather is a fantastic vocal coach. She tells you what you need to hear with humour and always pushes you to do better. I've learnt so much about my voice working with Heather. I would definitely recommend x
Heather is wonderful, aside from being incredibly experienced and professional she is one of those rare teachers who can support her students and help them grow while guiding them on the path to achieve their goals. I couldn’t recommend her more!
Heather was my University vocal teacher and I can not praise her work enough.
She has really taught me how to connect with my body and get the most out of my voice, plus her vocal warm ups are basically rules to live by.
Heather is one of the most empathetic teachers I’ve ever worked with. She always understands exactly what I need to get from a lesson and works efficiently and compassionately. She knows when to push me to achieve things I didn’t know were possible. She is really on top of her theory and understands the voice and her experience means I know I’m in safe hands and she’ll never ask me to do anything weird with my voice.
I leave every lesson better than I started and she gives me tools to work independently when I am not with her. I wish I had found her years ago!
I really recommend Heather
Heather taught me singing during my degree and was the first tutor who pinpointed exactly what my issues was - breathing and support above all else. She helped me untie a mental and physical knot and empowered me massively vocally. She's got a diverse background of techniques and styles and always taught with enthusiasm and an eye for detail with each an every student - would definitely recommend working with her as I've not felt as comfortable with any other singing teacher.
I’ve had a pleasure of working with Heather for 2+ years. She is a very experienced and successful tutor. I’ve learned so much just by watching and listening to her techniques when she worked with others and especially when we had our 1on1s. She really is a tutor that pushes you an extra mile, and it is so worth it! Heather took her time to get to know me “inside out”... she adjusted her teaching program to tend to my needs! I felt my voice getting noticeably stronger, more flexible, my runs cleaner and faster and my range greater. I still use all the advice she gave me on stage and when teaching my students.
Heather is an awesome singing teacher! I had my Vocal Technique lessons with her during my BMus. She was great on realizing what I was doing wrong while singing and Very instructive, practical and patient to show me how to improve it. Plus, I had a lot of fun during her classes as she is full of positive energy and good sense of humor.
'I ve had Heather as my vocal teacher while studying at ICMP, she is a great teacher with an extremely wide technical knowledge- she is a master of vocal technique, she helped me so much understand my voice and how to use it! I don’t hesitate to say that even now I m applying so much of what she’s taught me in my performing career and also taking so many things from her in my own teaching.'
Heather is a fantastic singing tutor! She helped me increase my range and improve my tone. But more importantly she regularly (and in a supportive way) pushed me out of my comfort zone, which in turn helped me become a better performer and a more confident singer. I’m very grateful to her and I’m sure future students won’t be disappointed!
Heather is a wonderful singing teacher, she gave me confidence in my abilities and the skills to continually improve my voice. I'm very grateful to her for all she has taught me and I continue to use her advice and techniques to this day. Thank you Heather
