Super Prof

About the lesson

Singing makes you feel great and I'm an enthusiastic, experienced singing teacher who enables students to improve their singing at whatever their level. Lessons are tailored to the goals of each student and I encourage practice between lessons.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Lessons cover pop, jazz and musical theatre singing, mic technique, song interpretation, sight-singing, stagecraft and voice production for both singing and speaking. Help can also be given with building a varied repertoire and putting a great set together. Learning to sing is an all-round confidence builder and techniques like breath control and learning to relax can be applied across the board where keeping your cool and appearing confident is essential. As a languages graduate I am also able to coach French and Italian repertoire and pronunciation.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

My vocal studies include Estill Voice Training Levels 1 & 2, Estill For The Changing Voice and Fundamentals of the Singing Voice Levels 1 & 2. I studied for 4 years with Kenneth Woollam (English National Opera, Head of Opera Royal College of Music) and 3 years with Claire Martin OBE. My Degree is BA Hons in French with Italian (London University).

- How much do you charge?

£40 (£30 online) p/h for one to one lessons.

- Where do you teach?

Lessons are in my studio in SE22 (East Dulwich, Southwark). I am happy to travel to a workplace within Greater London to teach by arrangement.

- When are you available?

Weekday daytime, early evening and Saturday mornings are all good.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All students are welcome, from age 8 upwards at all levels.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare students for Sight Singing upto Grade 5, and Jazz/Pop Singing upto and including Conservatoire entry level.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am happy to teach through Skype if a student cannot come along in person, though this is always preferable. The lesson would have the same format as face to face but emphasis on technique is the most productive way to teach over skype. A good broadband connection is important to avoid lag when doing skype lessons.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Everybody's voice is unique and I find it thrilling to hear my students develop their singing, presentation skills and confidence at whatever their level. When the teaching is good and the student is committed then real progress follows. It's also really enjoyable!

About Sarah

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching singing and voice production for ten years working with both amateur and professional singers from beginners, through to BMus students, actors at the National Theatre and the Unicorn Theatre and recording artists. I have tutored students for (successful) Brit School and Guildhall School Of Music and Drama auditions and produced vocals on numerous recording sessions. For twenty years I have been a professional singer including six years as featured vocalist with The John Wilson Orchestra, broadcasting with the BBC Concert Orchestra, singing at Ronnie Scott's Club, the Southbank Centre, in theatres, festivals, jazz-clubs and cruise-ships and doing TV sessions (Comic Relief 2013, The Paul O'Grady Show, The Ben Elton Show and Lenny Henry In Pieces). I have made fivecritically acclaimed CDs which have garnered reviews including 5 stars in The Observer (14/9/14). I also write one-woman shows which take the form of a musical and spoken presentation.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have an up-to-date DBS.

- Where and with whom did you train?

My singing teachers were Kenneth Woollam (English National Opera, Head of Opera Singing at Royal College of Music) and Claire Martin OBE. My studies also include Estill Voice Training with Anne-Marie Speed and Paul Farrington and Fundamentals of the Singing Voice with Linda Hutchison.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

No.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My current students include secondary school students who want to develop their singing, a teenager working towards Brit School and Conservatoire auditions, an actress who is working on a singing role and a professional cabaret artist, plus adult amateur singers who want to develop their vocal technique and performance skills.
