I am a well experienced singing and piano/keyboard teacher and have been teaching for over 10 years.

I am the first IVA (Institute for Vocal Advancement) teacher in Manchester and am currently a Level 2 teacher. IVA is an internationally recognised technique which focuses on enabling the voice to sing in a free and natural manner, smoothly, from the bottom of the range to the top with no breaks or sudden changes in quality. Prior to joining IVA I spent 2 years as a qualified Level 1 Speech Level Singing teacher (SLS).

I teach privately from my home studio and also in numerous different schools working with students as young as four years old.

I'm passionate about tailoring my teaching to my students needs; whether this is learning just for fun, or wanting to be entered in for exams or preparing for auditions. I have a 100% pass rate for all my students who have taken exams with the majority achieving distinctions.

With my background in Classical music and then studying a Popular Music Degree, I have the knowledge to cover a broad range of styles and genres including classical, rock, pop, gospel, soul, jazz, opera, musical theatre etc. This means if you have a particular song you would like to learn, I would be able to accommodate your taste in music!

I am also a keen performer myself - I front a band called Milo Cho that performs in different venues across the UK, I also play and sing as a session musician in numerous other projects. The skills I have in songwriting are also teachable to any student who is more advanced and wants to progress onto writing their own material.

I teach privately from my home studio or via skype.
