Notes:

As a professional singer based in London, I work with the UK's most highly regarded ensembles, including the BBC Singers, Tenebrae, The Dunedin Consort and others. I maintain a busy schedule as a consort singer and frequently perform abroad.

I am an experienced teacher, having worked in schools for over 10 years, training pupils in preparation for exams, performances and shows. I have a 100% pass record for pupils entered for ABRSM and Trinity examinations. I happily explore repertoire beyond the classical style, and I am equally comfortable working in the musical theatre style and pop style too.

I teach with a focus on developing healthy habits, identifying where vocal production can be strained or tiring, and progressing toward vocal flexibility and increased stamina over time with a series of specialist exercises. I am particularly interested in how posture and body position can dramatically improve results in singers that experience vocal tiredness and loss of voice.

At the centre of this is a belief that everyone can find their voice, and I love to work with individuals of all experience levels to help with this.

I teach in my home in London, and have a versatile space with lots of natural light and a piano.
