I am a professional Opera Singer who has been working in the UK for over 5 years now. With a First Class Music Degree, Masters in Music and Post Graduate Diploma in Vocal Performance, I have performed most era's of music and on most major opera stages in the UK. Starting as a musical Theatre singer (and still having a huge interest - one my favourite past times) and slowly progressing to Opera Singing, I have performed in most styles. I like to base my teaching on good vocal grounding through classical techniques. I have been teaching Piano and Voice to all ages for at least 6 years now.
In the Youtube link below, you will see me in a recent production of Turandot at the Coliseum at English National Opera.
It is important to me that my students enjoy their lessons, but also look forward and work hard towards their next lesson.
My aim as a teacher is to produce a friendly and fun environment. I am more than happy to help you go as far as you wish. If its for fun and enjoyment, this is great! But if you wish to be put in for ABRSM and other associated boards of Music exams (Grades 1-8), then this is also great too.
Rock, Classical, Folk, Pop, Opera, Soul and Gospel. I'm also a good pianist, and can provide accompaniment if so required.
Lessons start from £15 for a 30 min session - Basic Level (usually recommended for those under 16), £22.50 for those at a more Intermediate Level requiring a 45 min session and £30 for those at a more Advance Level requiring 1 hour. These cost are not stuck in stone, and advance block booking could result in a discount. Please mention if you would be interested in this in your initial request.
Please Note: Can also travel as have own vehicle.
