Notes:

I am a passionate and experienced teacher and my primary objective is to cater your lessons to your individual needs and motivation. If you are working towards music exams I will help to focus and prepare you to reach your potential in the timeframe. Likewise if you are working towards a performance/show I will work with you across all areas of the performance to make sure that you are well prepared and in peak vocal condition for the event/s. If this is just for fun then I will endeavour that we cover whatever chosen music you would like to explore, whilst finding ways to challenge and keep you in engaged.

My specialism lies in jazz and improvisation but my experience as a performer comes from a range of styles and genres, and due to my varied training I have a technical foundation that underlies all the work that I do. I believe that a solid vocal technique and some understanding of vocal anatomy allows the singer to work in any chosen genre. I am sure some of you may have heard singing teachers claim that singing ins 'pop' style could damage a 'classical' voice, and is therefore discouraged. This can be alarming to the young (or old) student, but luckily these are rather 'old school' mentalities and this just isn't the case - a good technique will take you wherever you want to go.

I have studied with various Estill Method teachers over the years and this approach has suited me very well. Estill promotes the idea that any voice can sing any style, you just have to understand how to make that sound. If you would like to learn more then you can find out more at estillvoice.com. However, whilst it worked for me it might not work for you, and that's why there is a vast range of vocal techniques and methods out there, so get investigating!
