S.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I currently work as an accent reduction teacher for an established language school in Cambridge U.K. where I help non-native english speakers improve on elocution, intelligibility and vocal confidence.

I have also taught spoken voice placement, accent reduction, diction and presentation techniques at Université du Québec à Montréal, whilst based in Canada.

I work on improving your vocal projection, vocal reliability and overall confidence for public presentations. Other vocal health issues may also be addressed...Be in touch!

I am also a very active performer singing both in the UK and abroad. Recent soloist engagements include Royal Opera House (Covent Garden), Royal Festival Hall, St-Martin in the Fields, Opéra de Montréal, English Touring Opera and others.

I teach voice institutionally as well as privately from my studio at home.

Please see my performing CV under the "experience" section of this Interview for more info.

I truly enjoy teaching and helping my students discover the possibilities their voices have to offer!
