The Lessons

Lessons are relaxed but have structure to ensure pupils are progressing. Hour lessons and half hour lessons are availible at Sarah's home in Marple.

For singing lessons Sarah uses backing tracks, this means she can focus on the pupil's voice fully and also give the pupil chance to take the backing track home to practice. In all subjects Sarah uses an evaluation process to monitor the pupils' progress. This includes evaluations from Sarah and self evaluations from the pupil. Lessons are informal and fun with the pupil at the heart of the lesson. Sarah feels it is important to cater for every pupil's needs, so when it comes to picking material to use it is always the pupil's choice.

Sarah teaches many different aspects of voice and drama. For singing pupils she can work on projection, noting, technical breathing, confidence, performance style, posture, musical theatre, popular music, indie music, volume and strength. If there is anything a pupil wishes to work on she will help in any way she can. For Drama lessons, the areas that Sarah works on are, emotional honesty, emotional recall, accents, posture, confidence, volume, audition technique and preparation, monologues and duologues, Shakespeare and building a repetoire,as drama is such a wide subject there are many other aspects to work on and lessons can be tailored to what the pupil wants.
