I also teach in the West Sussex/Hampshire and Surrey area.

I have been teaching singing for 8 years now, with ages ranging from 7-70; I find it a complete joy and I love seeing students working to better themselves while being excited by music, vocal technique and improvement. I am a classically trained operatic Soprano with three years training in a Masters of Performance degree in Vocal and Opera Studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I then went on to study at the prestigious and world-renowned Guildhall School Opera Course. I believe in a holistic approach to singing, addressing the whole body and maintaining a healthy vocal development whilst having a great deal of fun exploring repertoire. My performing website is so please feel free to have a listen.

I first studied theory and singing myself at Ditcham Park School, where I was a pupil and music scholar, from 2001-2006. I have continued to study and enjoy it ever since! I was Deputy Head Girl when I reached form 5 and from there, went on to study Music at Godalming College, heading the chamber choir among other small ensembles. I then proceeded to undertake a BMus (Hons) Music Degree at Royal Holloway, where I obtained a 2:1, graduating in July 2013. In my two gap years, I worked in the music department at Dunhurst and Bedales School, teaching everything from singing to recorder, classroom music and theory to 8-18 year olds. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and found it incredibly rewarding, helping a large number of children with different needs and abilities. Particularly gratifying were those who were struggling, especially when they wound up achieving scholarships, high GCSE and A level grade as well as other musical achievements.

Music theory and singing is a crucial skills for many reasons, which I`m sure youíre familiar with. In music, unlike other fields, there is no difference between theory and practice. It heightens a pupilís ability to write, perform and detect errors in music, improve critical reasoning skills and it expands options as a musician and performer as well as developing excellent scholarship. It has been proven incredibly advantageous when run alongside GCSE and A level music, of which I am very familiar with the syllabuses. From my other teaching experience, I have found it beneficial to the other instrumentalist peripatetics who canít afford to use the time teaching theory when the pupil needs practical instrumental tuition.
