Singing Teacher Muswell Hill | Singing Teacher London

Methodology

Hello, I am a professional Tenor and Singing Teacher in Central London and North London. Whether you are looking to master your voice for professional purposes or explore singing for personal growth, I believe I can help you release your true voice.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

We will cover fundamentals of breathing, phonation, balanced tone and resonance, registers and range extension, as well as advanced performance concepts. My ideas are based on the traditional Italian Bel Canto approach, and incorporate the latest concepts of teaching, which may be applied to opera and concert music, as well as 'legit' West End/Broadway/theatre repertoire.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have Bachelor and Master conservatory degrees and have performed 35 professional roles in theatres in the UK, US, and Germany. I trained with renowned pedagogue Richard Miller at the Oberlin Conservatory, and my current teacher and mentor is Sicilian tenor Gioacchino (Jack) LiVigni. I have studied with some of the world's top teachers and have worked with coaches at the world's finest theatres. The study of the art of singing is my life's work.

- How much do you charge?

Singing lessons are 50 pounds per hour. If applicable there is also an additional 10 pounds charge for studio rental in Central London. Skype lessons also available.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at my home studio in Muswell Hill, and several studios in Central London including near Oxford Circus, Marble Arch, and Covent Garden. I also successfully teach students around the world via Skype, and may be able to travel to a student's home, depending on location.

- When are you available?

I teach from about 11am to 8pm during the week, as well as some weekend lessons.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages from the young to the young at heart, from beginner to established professional. Generally speaking, singing lessons usually begin in teenage years, though I have successfully taught singing students as young as 10 and have experience with young voices and 'changing' voices.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Professional auditions, Conservatory auditions, Choir auditions, ABRSM/Trinity exams, etc.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I teach online via Skype and send an invoice for payment via Paypal which may be paid by credit card or bank transfer.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Whether you are newly discovering the singing art or a more experienced artist seeking mastery, I believe I can help you. Please contact me with any questions or for more information, or to schedule a time. I look forward to hearing you!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

15+ years of teaching experience with students accepted into conservatories and singing professionally on opera and theater stages. I have also successfully taught pop/rock/jazz singers and have experience with helping singers recover from vocal health issues. Former associate instructor at the Indiana University School of Music, and staff member of the Otto B. Schoepfle Vocal Arts Center in collaboration with the Cleveland Clinic.

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

I am a certified teacher in the US and have had background checks completed there for teaching work. I am a Canadian and British citizen and have recently returned to the UK

- Where and with whom did you train?

Dr. Beverly Coulter - Miami, Florida
Richard Miller - Oberlin Conservatory
Mark Oswald - New York City
Timothy Noble - Indiana University
Gioacchino (Jack) LiVigni - New York City

As well as numerous other teachers and coaches at some of the top theatres.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have a wide range of students:

-Young singers ages 10-18 preparing for school performances and auditions
-Young beginners in their late teens or early twenties exploring singing lessons for the first time
-A number of young professional singers in their 20s and 30s who are seeking to explore the 'old Italian' approach or current technical methods in great detail, polish their repertoire for performances and auditions, or address a specific technical question (breathing, high range, etc)
-Singers already having a career who wish to address some challenges that have arisen in a 100% confidential setting.
-Adult singers who have another career or business but who have a passion for music and want to explore and develop their voice.
