Singing Teacher North London (Stoke Newington, Highbury, Dalston, Hackney) - Sophie

Methodology

Hello, my name is Sophie. I'm a classical soprano and voice teacher. It is my greatest passion and privilege to spread the joy that music can bring, be that through performing or teaching.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach singing based on a classical technique but I'm very happy to adapt that to different repertoire such as Music Theatre, folk or jazz.

For younger students I will usually include a little bit of general musicianship training to improve the ear. This is through fun exercises and games and really helps the singing and general musicality.

I am comfortable to teach in French or Italian and speak a little German.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I am currently in the final year of my BMus(Hons) at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 per hour and often encourage shorter lessons of 30 mins at £15 for children and complete beginners - singing is hard work!

A consultation is £20 per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I prefer to teach at my home where I have a lovely piano and lots of space.

I am very happy to consider travelling to Central or North London, or even further afield, but this is time-dependent and I may charge slightly more to cover my travel costs.

- When are you available?

I teach on most weekday evenings and all day at the weekend.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I am happy to teach all ages and levels. My only requirement is that you want to learn.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I will, if desired, prepare students for all the usual music exams eg. ABRSM or Trinity Guildhall Exams.

I will also work towards specific individual goals and requirements such as auditions and performances.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I want your singing lessons to be about you. I aim to use the basis of a good technique to help my students to achieve their personal goals which can be as simple as just being able to sing a folk song in tune or as complex as preparing for a recital. Music is an incredible thing and singing lessons can do wonders for the confidence, ability to concentrate, language skills, posture, and overall happiness of both children and adults. I am passionate about what I do and I want the best for my students as singers and as people.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

Although my degree is primarily performance based, it includes a Teaching Skills element so I have received tutoring on pedagogy from several of the countries top singing teachers.
I have experience of music workshops in primary schools.
Furthermore, I have a lot of performing experience which I feel really enables me to inspire and encourage my students. I know what they're going through when they feel nervous or have doubts and how to overcome that.

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

No, as I am self-employed.

If parents have any concerns I'm more than happy for them to come and observe the lesson. I'll even provide a cup of tea.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I currently study with Susan Waters at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Previous teachers are Kathryn Harries, the director of the National Opera Studio, and Wilma MacDougall, Vocal Professor at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

I studied Voice and 'Cello at the RCS Junior Academy and took part in the first Scottish Opera Connect programme. I have taken piano lessons and a short course in piano accompaniment.
