I have been teaching at my home in Stratton, Cirencester since September 2010 and have a thriving practice. I am pretty full now on a Saturday and almost at capacity during the weekdays. I have a mix of youngsters and mature adults and many have the potential to go on and become professional singers. I have the addition of a beautiful, purpose built music room on my property, which has just been approved as the centre for ABRSM examinations for Cirencester.

It has been very heartening to witness a shy young person walk into my studio and blossom into a confident singer and performer in a short space of time. The confidence they attain spills over into other areas of their lives and I constantly receive emails from parents speaking of their delight as they also witness the transformation of their child into a confident young person.

I decided to mark the beginning of this year by officially giving my teaching practice a name. From now on it will be called BelCanto Voice Studio.

Below are some of the achievements of the past 2

Over 50% of students are achieving Distinction in Associated Board singing exams (December 2012 this number was 70%, 7 out of 10 students gaining Distinction).
The first year of entering my students into Cheltenham Festival of Performing Arts (2012), 3 of them achieved Silver Medals. We have built on this each year and in 2014 there was a cup winner, 3 gold medal winners, 2 silver medal winners and 2 bronze medal winners.

In September 2012 one youngster was selected for the National Finals of the First News Diamond Kids competition and another was awarded a place at the Prestigious Italia Conti School of Theatre in Newbury.

Former students have gained places at the Royal
Academy of Music and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.
