Emma is a fantastic teacher and vocal coach. She is so patient and really helps build confidence. I really look forward to all of my lessons with her and the vast array of music that she introduces me to. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Emma is not only a truly gifted musician and performer she is also a natural teacher. Her teaching style is confident, engaging and openly honest, and has enabled me to gain renewed joy and confidence in my singing. Lessons are focused and well planned and delivered with an infectious, lively enthusiasm that allows for lots of fun whilst still achieving set goals. In addition she is highly professional, incredibly well organised and offering great value for money. I thoroughly recommend her.

Emma is an excellent singing teacher. She is very friendly, and is very professional and exceptionally knowledgable about singing and music. I was a complete beginner and I am thoroughly enjoying my singing with Emma 2 years on!

Interview with Emma

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you first develop a passion for music and your favourite instrument?
Emma — I cannot remember when as it seems music has always been a part of my life! I grew up with musicians for parents so the house was always buzzing with singing, brass, piano, violin, guitar.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Is there a particular type of music or artist that you listen to on a loop without it driving you crazy?
Emma — Any Musical Theatre - it's my passion.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Explain to us the most difficult or riveting course you could personally give to a student of music.
Emma — I think varying styles and sounds within a song is the most difficult thing to do but also most exciting.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think is the most complicated instrument to master and why?
Emma — Voice! It's so volatile and set within our bodies so many different factors affect its production & quality.
QUESTION 05 | 08
What are your keys to success?
Emma — Determination, pride and strength.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Name three musicians you dream of meeting in your favourite bar in the early hours of the morning. Explain why.
Emma — More vocalists than musicians...

- Kristin Chenoweth - her versatility is amazing!

- Shirley Bassey - what stage presence and what a voice!

- Imelda Staunton - not only a fabulous voice but an amazing actress. I'd love to learn from her.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Provide a valuable piece of related to music or your days at music school.
Emma — "Don't sing a ballad, on a ballad!" Ballads are slow anyway, you must continue to drive through them and keep the audience interested and excited.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What are the little touches that make you a Superprof in music?
Emma — I'm really interested in people and the reason they want to sing. I want to help as many people as I can fulfil their dreams, no matter how big or even how small. My lessons are totally structured by what the particular student wants to achieve.
