(Update!) Following government guidelines I am now resuming face to face lessons, but online lessons are still available.

Please see my Website for more details:

I am a Professional Jazz Vocalist and Vocal Coach from the Petersfield area specialising in improvisation. I am also currently The Musical Director at Italia Conti Associates Petersfield. I have studied at the University of Chichester and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. While studying at Trinity Laban I was awarded the highly regarded Archers Scholarship Award for outstanding performance.

Lessons will consist of learning to use your body appropriately for singing, it will focus on breath, posture and techniques that will help your voice flourish and grow. Lessons will help increase confidence for beginners, let the more experienced singers learn new approaches. Whatever standard you are at, you will be provided with one-to-one tuition and guidance on how to improve your singing voice. I aim to make lessons fun and engaging. I am also available for group workshops for schools or groups.

Likewise if you need help with auditions, I have great experience and can help you choose your pieces or help improve what you have already chosen.

Lessons can be arranged here at my home or even at comfort of your own home if you wish.

*First trial lesson of 30mins is free.*

"The help James gave with my son Hadley's song was utterly invaluable!" - Layla

"I wanted to improve my singing as a complete novice I was a tad nervous. James is friendly, calms the nerves and builds the confidence. James identifies the problems and is continuing to help develop my techniques to improve my vocals. My confidence in singing is improving and I am really enjoying the sessions which is the aim." - Wendy

"I used to sign in the school choir but over the years through disuse my singing had dried up. James has a holistic approach to teaching - physical, mental and theoretical. I've got my voice back and I'm now looking forward to singing in public again in my band." - John

I am based in the Petersfield area, but can travel within West Sussex, Surrey, and Hampshire.
