Singing Coach with BMus (Hons) in Music Performance, Estill Figure Proficiency and years of experience as a music tutor and performer, based in London

Methodology

Hi, I’m Dimitris. I’m a Singing Coach working in London since 2014 and I love my job because I meet and help creative people by showing them a way to achieve their goals in a positive environment. I have a BMus (Hons) in Music Performance from London Centre of Contemporary Music as a vocalist, an EFP (Estill Figure Proficiency) certificate from Estill Voice Training and years of experience and knowledge attained through private tuition, attendance of workshops, choir singing, conservatoire studies and performing in several music projects.

I work with singers on various music genres, including pop, rock, blues, jazz, musical theatre, as well as actors preparing songs for auditions, instrumentalists who want to sing lead or backing vocals, songwriters who want to perform their songs, choir singers, voice teachers who aim to expand their knowledge anatomically on how the voice works, children and adults who want to apply for music/acting schools, or just enjoy singing.

Sessions are based on exploring, understanding and improving the client’s voice, but they often expand to guitar/piano accompaniment, stylistic performance and stage presence, performance anxiety, repertoire expansion, songwriting, music theory, sight reading, career discussions, or other subjects of interest.

Experience

I was born in Thessaloniki, Greece and started performing professionally when I was 16 years old. I studied music from a young age, first as a guitarist in the Conservatoire of Northern Greece and later as a vocalist in the Conservatoire of Kalamaria, the State Conservatoire of Greece and Macedonian Conservatoire of Thessaloniki. In 2007, I joined the Mixed Choir of Thessaloniki, expanding my classical repertoire as a baritone/tenor singer, singing in numerous concerts and operas in Greece and abroad. The same year I formed my own band as a singer, guitarist and songwriter, with which I made an EP, won awards in music competitions and toured. Both projects ran until 2011 when I moved to London for further studies, where I started performing with my function band, among others. In 2014 I finished my BMus with Honours in Music Performance and Production from London Centre of Contemporary Music and focused on teaching. In 2016 I attended Levels 1&2 of Estill Voice Training and participated in a prog rock project album as a singer and songwriter. In 2018 I got my Estill Figure Proficiency certificate from Estill Voice Training.

Dimitris is a great teacher. I have been having lessons with him for 4-5 months and have noticed a definite improvement in my voice. (I have actually moved to a different part of London during this time but still come back to Tooting for my weekly lessons!) I have learnt a lot about technique, my range has increased, and I feel much more confident.

Dimitris is a great tutor! It's been only 3 weeks, but I feel like I have already made substantial progress. At least, I am way more aware of my voice, and the way it works. Dimitris' advice and exercices are really useful. And he is very nice and always listening, adapting to his students.

I am not the greatest guitar player in the world but having D as my teacher has given me more confidence to try new chords and learn the basics of understanding music. He is very patient, friendly and most of all a fantastic guitarist! I have a lesson once a month and even when I don't have time to practice between lessons, I always learn something new and manageable to take on board to become a better player! Looking forward to my next lesson!!!

Dimitris comes once a week to teach guitar to my youngest boy. First time ever my son looks forward to having a lesson. he practices before Dimitris arrives, he gets organised and all that. So it is because of Dimitris. Dimiitris is enthusiastic, passionate about music and he is very patient and smiles all the time.
I am really happy to have found him and highly recommend him to anyone.

Now retired, and with limited singing experience, Dimitris immediately established rapport with me and took pains to understand my concerns and the goals I wanted to achieve. I feel he has appreciated my qualities as well as my needs. He is focused and disciplined in his teaching methods and, moreover, he makes singing so much fun. He has a great sense of humour and working hard with him is always such a pleasure.

This teacher is amazing, patient and a very talented person. Lessons are challenging but fun at the same time. I would recommend him to people at any levels of music knowledge. Best choice!

I've been having singing lessons with Dimitris for a couple of months now and am already seeing an improvement in my voice. He's very friendly and approachable - which helps if you need to get over any self-consciousness! He's also been really accommodating fitting lessons in around my changing schedule. He can teach a variety of styles and he certainly knows his stuff. It's a thumbs up from me!

I was always impressed by Dimitris! He has his way with children, he is patient and a positive person! A child will learn from him really easily, like a game but still will get the knowledge and all the appropriate techniques!
He knows what he's doing and I'm glad I met him

A model of appropriate behavior, he is in a league of his own and can provide extra instructional support based on individual student assessments. Every aspect of his teaching is innovative to say the least; instruction, assessment, interaction, communication, administration and management are just some of his areas of expertise as far as teaching is concerned.

Val

My little one needed to improve her theory and sight singing along with her singing skills in order to prepare for her grade 4 singing exam. Dimitris was organized from the beginning and patient throughout. She achieved grade 4 with a high mark and now we will start preparing for grade 5. I also had some singing lessons with him that were really relaxing and fun. Strongly recommending him for all ages!
