Teaching Classical technique, musical theatre, rock, pop and any style you choose, whether you’re an advanced singer or a total beginner.

I have a distinction at Grade 8 in singing, and a BA(hons) at performance (Musical Theatre) from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts as well as years of ongoing training & experience.

Classes are usually £45 per hour
- Where do you teach?
I teach at a new Central London location, which is a 5 minute walk from Marble Arch Tube Station. The venue has all amenities, including a kitchen with tea and coffee. There is a new piano in each room every month, and they are tuned every week.

I can work any time of the day and week, with enough notice from you;)

I usually teach a large age range, from 16 to 60.

If you don’t use it you lose it! So fall in love with your voice and keep singing. Make sure you enjoy every second of it, and work hard - because it’ll be worth it in the end - you’ll soon be dazzling yourself with your own voice.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I’ve been teaching for over 8 years now and have performed across the world from the UK to Mexico to Hollywood in concerts, West End productions and Feature Films. I’ve now been recommended as the top vocal coach in London by the Bernard Hiller Acting Studio LA & UK, Independent Drama, and many more. I also receive referrals from other coaches, including Ian Baar and hold presentation / master class workshops for drama schools and agents, in which I always involve my students (great experience and exposure)!
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
I was originally trained in opera by Claudio Barr, at his home in north London, then by Jean Aird at her Studio in Devon and Ian Baar at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, with whom I continued to train for over 10 years, and still see on occasion, whilst i'm now concentrating on the bel canto opera style with Carl Penlington-Williams. After training I moved into musical theatre and rock, performing in shows such as 'Les Miserable’ (Montparnasse) and 'Jesus Christ Superstar' (Jesus) and have since got back into Opera and Classic Music Theatre.
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I’m with British Actors Equity, and Spotlight.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
My current students range from musical theatre professionals working in the west end, to students auditioning for drama schools. I teach dancers and actors wanting to improve their singing, and also one or two older more experienced classical singer, wanting someone to keep an eye on their technique, and keep their voice in good shape.
