I am a friendly and enthusiastic Professional Opera Singer who enjoys working with pupils of any age who are keen to learn how to sing and/or play the piano.I have sang principal roles with English National Opera and Scottish Opera and have performed in many of Londons concert halls notably the Royal Festival Hall,Wigmore Hall,Barbican and the Royal Albert Hall. Drawing on my experiences,I have been teaching singing for nearly ten years and thoroughly enjoy sharing the knowledge I have as a classical singer with aspiring singers of any age and at any stage in their development. The age range of my current pupils is from 10 to 67 proving the fact that it's never too late to get started and even if you'd love to but think you just can't sing - you can! Like a novel, everybody has a voice inside them-it's just all about finding it,then nurturing it with a good, solid technique and most importantly,keeping at it! I am currently preparing some pupils for ABRSM exams, an entrance exam for a stage school, a singer/songwriter who has sealed an album deal and not forgetting those who just want to sing because they've always wanted to! I have been CRB checked (January 2012) and am happy to travel to teach either in the comfort of your home (a piano is required) or from my own in Cardiff Bay. In addition to my singing, I have Grade 8 in both Piano and Cello and Grade 5 Clarinet. So if you've always wanted to sing or you're at a stage where you need a little encouragement and friendly support from someone who is knowledgable and understands, then please feel free to get in touch.
