I recognise that every student is different, therefore I adapt my teaching in accordance to how the child prefers to be taught and works best. I am friendly and open minded and love working with children who put in the effort in between each lesson. I aim to build the student's confidence in performance.
I am currently an undergraduate music student, hoping to go on to do an MA in Acting after my degree. I have a passion for performing, especially acting and singing, and love to explore the context behind a piece of music or a monologue, to become closer to the character and portray the character well

Perfect! Really enjoyed India's lesson and she helped me a lot:)
Ellie's intonation improved very well in the lesson, as a result of using good, healthy technique. We focused on breathing and preparing the space in the mouth before singing. Looking forward to the next lesson!
I have worked with India in numerous capacities. We have performed together in a variety of vocal ensembles and toured to Italy to perform in venues such as the Vatican (St Peter’s Basilica). Most recently India and I have worked together in running a new choir titled Jane Holloway Choir. I can testify to India’s incredible organisational skills as she is the reason the choir managed to get off the ground. She is a warm and friendly person who works incredibly hard to achieve her goals and this can be heard in her singing and seen in her other hobbies. India is a diverse singer with classical training but also a talent for musical theatre and popular covers. This unique diversity of style combined with India’s wonderful organisation skills give me every confidence in recommending India as a music tutor. She will do everything to help her pupils and has the knowledge and experience to help them excel in their goals.
India was the general manager for the university choir I was in last year. She was a great manager, very friendly and helpful, and I would definitely recommend her as a tutor!
I met India when she was general manager for our choir at Royal Holloway. She did such a fantastic job getting the choir to work together and bring out the best in every member. India is a great tutor because she is so approachable, always willing to go the extra mile and extremely encouraging.
India is a lovely, smiley friend who is reliable and welcoming. She was a great General Manager for Jane Holloway Choir, and can definitely say she is organised and hard-working!
India is a wonderful teacher, having experience in both the amateur and professional world. Her passion for musical theater combines great knowledge of acting, voice, and dramaturgy.
Having known India for a couple of years as we attend the same university I can safely say that she is a very hardworking and persevering student. She commits to her role as an academic student but also to her extra curricular like leading student led ensembles at university and being a talented musician. This proves that she can multitask but also overcome various challenges thus I would recommend her as a tutor.
Very happy to recommend India. She’s kind and thoughtful and always putter other people’s needs before her own. She is also extremely talented which can be see from her previous experiences in musical theatre and choir which has led her to perform in some amazing productions and places.
India is hard-working and approachable; a natural leader. As general manager of our university choir, she was always quick to distribute relevant information, deal with any arising issues, and worked hard to make everybody feel welcome and valued. She also used her musical talents to set a great example for the other singers.
India is greatly competent and has good leadership skills, she was general manager for a choir I was in and I have worked with her on multiple occasions for projects related to music. On top of this she is a genuinely lovely and patient person, greatly suited to tutoring others.
India was general manager for the Jane Holloway choir last year and was consistently committed to the organisation of the choir both during the year and during the national lockdown, when she organised for us to perform virtually by editing our singular videos together.
India was also very encouraging and helpful when anybody had a problem or needed assistance. She has been very understanding personally with my mental health issues which occasionally caused me to miss rehearsals.
Furthermore, India is an extremely talented musician, and I have the utmost faith that this will be passed on to each of her students.
