I am absolutely passionate about singing and in my many years of singing teaching I have seen real transformation through the power of the singing voice.
I teach a very strong vocal technique working holistically, taking the whole person in account and believe and hope my 25 years experience as a singer, singing coach and music director enables me to truly empathise and understand the particular pressures of the singer both beginners singing for fun or the sheer therapy of singing to the demands of the professional singer and work with each individual and unique person to bring about real and lasting change. And it's fun...I have been told by my students that they might come feeling low or tired and go out feeling bright and uplifted!

Sandra Scott as a teacher and coach, I realise... there are not enough words in the English language!

Sandra Scott is a gem.
Inspiring, generous and infectiously in love with singing. I feel very lucky to have her in my life!

​
I was very nervous at the idea of singing in front of anyone - I couldn't even sing to myself - but Sandra's good humour, warmth, encouragement and guidance combined with a profound understanding of great technique has revealed and nurtured a voice I never knew I had.

Whether you're looking to improve your voice, try something new or work on your self-confidence, I really recommend Sandra, she is not only an amazing teacher but works tirelessly to find opportunities for her student

is wonderful group of enormously talented singers were the musical highlight of The Silver Line's first Carols By Candlelight event set in London's oldest surviving church. St. Bartholomew the Great. They could not have delivered the selection of seasonal music more beautifully. Thank you so much to the so aptly named Wall of Sound.

I have been having singing lessons with Sandra twice a month for at least 3 years. In that time we have built up a good relationship and have had lots of fun.

Sandra has extended my vocal range by a lot of different exercises. She has also introduced me to a lot of different songs and made me realize my own abilities. She is a very good teacher and I believe conductor.
