I teach the Estill model which is the safest and most used methodology in the West End.
I trained at The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama and have been working in the industry for 6 years, performing in West End and touring productions.
Alongside my First Class BA(Hons) degree I also have a diploma (Distinction) in singing.
I have trained in the Estill technique and am incredibly passionate about sharing this model with students to reach their maximum potential. Jo Estill believed that "everyone has a beautiful voice" and when you truly understand how it all works, there is no limit to what you can do.
I have had quite the vocal journey myself with a huge loss of confidence at the start of my career with vocal health issues. The voice is such a precious and personal thing. It's how we communicate and express ourselves; no one else on this earth will have the same sound as you. So when it doesn't behave how you want it to, it can take quite a toll. I have spent years learning and honing techniques from the very best on how to strengthen the vocal folds, singing safely and sustainably. My voice is now stronger than it ever was before.
When you change the way you approach the voice and learn failsafe techniques, it is nothing but a joy to sing.

Perfect! Louise and I have so much fun. She is a gem of a teacher, as well as a brilliant performer herself and she really helped me find my belt. I look forward to our lessons so much and I am so delighted by the improvement I've made working with her.
Deborah is a fast paced learner with a powerhouse voice that only took a few weeks to tap into. She is a born performer.
Perfect! Louise is a fantastic teacher. She is full of positive energy and very encouraging and enthusiastic. My 11-year old daughter is thoroughly enjoying her singing lessons and is benefitting from Louise's experience, talent and encouragement. I would highly recommend Louise as a teacher.
Cecilia is a bright, talented student and a joy to teach.
My son was auditioning for Drama school and Louise was highly recommended to us. His confidence grew massively after just a few lessons and Louise had a wealth of brilliant audition material for him and his casting type. Would highly recommend.
Louise helped me prep for a big audition and I've never felt more confident going into the room. Would highly recommend!
Louise is a really experienced performer, including West End, so I was grateful for her expertise in singing technique. She gave me so much confidence in how to act whilst singing. I really recommend her.
Louise is a fantastic teacher. She has helped me find my belt and, most importantly, helped me find my confidence. She is a fun and talented teacher and I couldn’t recommend her more.
