Notes:

I started my career as a choral scholar at King's College London, going on to take a masters in Vocal Performance at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

I have worked as a professional singer for over twenty years, performing in major venues around the world with groups including the BBC Singers, Monteverdi Choir, Gabrieli Consort, Armonico Consort. I also record music for film and TV in the studio.

This experience means I am in the unique position of being able to guide my students towards the right training for a professional career if they desire.

I tailor my teaching to each individual according to their abilities and interests, and I believe healthy technique is crucial to all singers’ development. I provide guided warm-ups, practice strategies, repertoire advice and performance skills which enable you to understand how your voice works and develop and enjoy your singing to the highest level.

I am very interested in new developments in vocal research and teaching, and regularly attend events with associations such as AOTOS and BVA to keep up to date with these.

I am looking to take on a number of students in the following areas...

Children 10+ to learn vocal technique and performance skills, towards exams if desired.

Committed singers aged 16+ looking towards further training, perhaps a choral scholarship, music degree or college course, or with ambitions towards a professional career.

Adults who sing for pleasure and look to improve technique, repertoire, performance skills, audition preparation.
