Notes:

I am experienced singer and teacher. As a teacher I respond to the particular reasons each student seeks lessons, helping to select repertoire of interest to them, while encouraging them to broaden their singing experience and inspiring them to challenge themselves.

I understand how busy and preoccupied with schoolwork some young singing students are, so I aim to help them feel passionate about singing, find solace in it, and minimise any pressure they may feel while keeping to high standards and ensuring they make continued progress. I help them plan their practice, and through my focus on encouraging communication through music and text they increase their toolkit as performers. I draw on my experience to try techniques and exercises designed with the studentís requirements in mind, which can be breathing exercises, movement and spoken word as well as sung. I also have a number of piano students who are working towards ABRSM exams.

I bring a cheerful, upbeat personality to the lessons, focusing on confidence-building, since I believe that music lessons should contribute to the overall happiness and success of the student in all areas of life.
