Notes:

Since graduating in as a professional Tenor from Trinity College of Music London, in 2000, I've worked in many areas of performance and education.

EDUCATION:
I've worked as a singing teacher for Guildford School of Acting, Bird College, Italia Conti London, London Studio Centre and most recently in Leeds for the Morley Academy, Farnley Academy and SLP college.

PERFORMANCE
As a professional singer, I've worked in major concert venues around the UK, as a light oratorio Tenor to Musical Theatre/pop styles.

During my time in London, I conducted the London Equity Choir at events in venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and the Actor's Church. Kerry also conducted off-West End shows such as Anything Goes and Cabaret, and a one-off concert at the Old Vic.

I've also worked as a producer and conductor on a number of albums for solo singers in London, including workshops of music I wrote with various lyricists. I also recorded a CD of various sacred choral pieces after forming the Illumination choir with contemporary composer Miriam Mackie.

I moved to Leeds in 2015, where I work for a charity in the city centre, and continue to teach singing. I have worked as Musical Director for Beckett Choir since early 2016.

MY APPROACH:
I'm happy to teach a variety of styles depending on what you need. I have a friendly and enthusiastic teaching style to give you confidence and a sound technical framework.

I learnt my singing technique using Vocal Process (including their Core Training Programme), which is a very helpful way to diagnose and create healthy singing. See the book "Singing and the Actor" for more info.
