Vocal Coach with 10+ years experience offering tailored singing and music theory lessons in Raynes Park, London

Methodology

Hi!

I am an enthusiastic singing teacher with over ten years experience coaching both children and adults. My background includes both classical and contemporary training within genres such as Jazz, cabaret, musical theatre, pop and light opera.

When teaching, I work with students to support their learning by tailoring lesson plans that support their individual goals. Wither you are an absolute beginner or an experienced vocalist looking to improve your technique, we will adapt the lessons to support the goals you want to achieve.

Aspects of development include:
Vocal Technique
Performance Technique
Audition preparation
Vocal Health
Breathing, Support and Stamina
Range
Sight-reading
Repertoire

I strive to provide a friendly environment for all students where we can work together to achieve the best results, but most of all.. have some fun!

I believe in working with singers to help find 'their unique voice'. Each lesson is tailored using a variety of exercises to improve technique and encourage vocal confidence. We will work together to achieve your goals.

In addition to singing lessons I also offer Music Theory and Beginner Piano lessons.

I have been working as a vocal coach for over 10 years and have worked with both children and adults in 121 and group environments. My experience expands across musical theatre and contemporary music genres.
