I am a classically trained and qualified singing teacher. (1st BA Music Performance NUIM, Higher Diploma in Music in Arts Education, GCD, PG Advanced Vocal Studies, DIT, The Royal Irish Academy of Music, Dublin, Ireland.) I am currently studying with scholarship at PG level at Birmingham Conservatoire.

I moved to Birmingham at the beginning of September this year. I currently teach singing in The Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham at weekends. I am now in a position where I would like to extend my private teaching hours.

I have four years teaching experience in Ireland where I taught over 30 private students before moving permanently to Dublin and accepting a position at Dublin School of Music. I taught piano from elementary level up to grade 5, and gave singing lessons to students of all ages at different levels. The majority of all past students have received honours and distinction grades in their singing and piano exams. Some of my students chosen to enter local festivals and have won awards in their singing competitions. Two of my students have been accepted to study at Junior Conservatoire at The Royal Irish Academy of Music, where she will continue her studies at undergraduate level, the other is currently studying performance and theatre studies at The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art.

I was encouraged to sing from a young age and have performed many different genres of music Irish traditional (Sean-nós song), popular song, musical theatre and classical singing. After many years I have become an experienced singer and have performed throughout Ireland on the concert platform, in short operas and as a guest soloist with choral societies and orchestras.

I love to perform but also have discovered a passion for teaching. I favour anybody who enjoys music, has an interest in developing their singing voice and enjoys learning how the voice works. I offer a strong and safe technique for whatever genre of song you chose to learn.
As your teacher lessons will involve learning good posture and breathing, learning how to warm-up your voice before singing, discovering/improving technique, performance coaching, and language coaching (if applicable.)

When teaching young children, I encourage good lines of communication between parent, child and teacher so that learning outcomes can be reached and that, most importantly, everyone is happy in their learning :)
Please feel free to drop me a line my phone or by email if you have any enquires.

Best Wishes!
