Teresa - Welwyn Garden City - Songwriting

Methodology

I'm a young professional singer with a passion for teaching. I help my students to achieve measurable progress whilst having fun! I'm sensitive to the learning styles of individuals and tailor the course to meet their specific needs.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Classical Singing (bel canto)
Jazz/Musical Theatre
Other styles of singing
English as a foreign language

- Tell me about your qualifications.

2011 - 2013 Masters Distinction in Vocal Performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
2008 CELTA teaching qualification with class B (top 10% of candidates)
2005 - 2008 1st in Archaeology and Anthropology BA (hons) University of Cambridge, choral scholarship at Selwyn College

- How much do you charge?

£35 for an hour
£17.50 for 30 mins

I'm happy to arrange an initial consultation lesson for a reduced price, on application.

- Where do you teach?

I've just moved to Welwyn Garden City and am looking to begin teaching new pupils from my studio from July 2015. Please get in touch early to book your preferred lesson slot. This is a short drive from St Alban's, Hemel Hempstead, Cheshunt, Harpenden, Hatfield, Stevenage and Hertford. I'd be willing to travel to students depending on the number of hours to be taught in each session.

- When are you available?

Monday daytimes, weekday evenings and Saturdays. I have greater daytime availability during school holidays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach children of all levels from the age of 6 up, and adults who want to take up singing again after a break, improve their technique, join a choir, or simply try something new!

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Singing - I can prepare students for any exam (ABRSM or Trinity/Guildhall)

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I always take an informal, fun approach to learning, ensuring my singers feel comfortable and helping to boost their confidence. I always suggest appropriate repertoire to sing that further develops technique. Each week we take a look at how their progress is going, from any breakthroughs or good work done the week before, and take this forward to the next stage, so that pupils can track the progress they're making. Please do take a look at my testimonials to get a flavour of how I teach. If you have any questions feel free to call me to chat about your specific learning needs. I look forward to hearing from you!

I've been teaching singing since 2011 when I began studying part-time for my Masters in vocal performance and have personally studied singing since the age of 16, resulting in a fledgling professional career.

I currently teach singing in three independent schools and run a busy private teaching practise from my studio. I teach all ages and levels and have entered students for ABRSM exams.

Yes

Singing training:
Current teacher: Sophie Grimmer (Trinity)

A student winning the singing competition in year 4 with her solo song.
A student being selected for Townley Grammar School, after a course of 15 intensive lessons to prepare for the 11+.
A student gaining entry in year 7 to Blackheath High School for Girls, after a year's tuition to improve Maths and English confidence.

Teresa Pells taught my children aged 12 and 9 around 25 lessons before she relocated. The children took to Teresa immediately - despite some previous concerns on their part of having a tutor. The children both benefitted from Teresa's calm and friendly style, which made maths in particular more approachable for them. Teresa was punctual and reliable, and gave feedback promptly after each lesson. I am very happy to recommend her.

We wanted to say a massive thank you for teaching and preparing Lola for her tests. She has really come on, and you have played a huge part in her progress. Many many thanks.

From the onset we have found (Teresa) to be quite committed to her tutoring. We had her tutor our 6 year old daughter for Key Stage 1 English, Mathematics and Handwriting, once a week for 2 hours for the duration that we have known her. Our daughter was much at ease with Teresa's interactive lessons and incorporation of some fun activities into her learning sessions and has started to make good progress as we had hoped with her subjects.
