I am a fully qualified, DBS checked, teacher of singing and piano with over fifteen years experience of private and school teaching.

Having studied classical singing, and sung professionally I can help develop breathing and voice projection, as well as microphone and performance technique. Lessons will be a mixture of warm-ups and vocal exercises, with the learning of repertoire that is appropriate for the age and ability of the pupil. If you want to study for examinations, I will work on both the Trinity Guildhall and Associated Board syllabi, depending on the repertoire that I feel is appropriate to your needs and requirements. There will also be opportunities to work towards LAMDA Musical Theatre examinations. Singing lessons will be 30 mins for children, with 45 mins to an hour for older teenagers and adults, as you need time to fully warm-up and develop your technique, although this could be negotiated.

For many people, learning the piano is a lifelong ambition, and whether a child or adult, it is an incredibly rewarding skill to have. Lessons will be 30 mins in length, and you may wish to study for grade examinations, although you can learn just for fun. Basic music theory will be covered in order for you to fully develop your musicianship.

I am able to help you to develop your understanding of the basics of musical theory through practical activities, as well as theoretical exercises. If required, you can undertake all of the theory examinations up to Grade 8 standard, and I will help you develop your general musicianship skills.

If you are studying Music GCSE, I am also able to tutor you on all aspects of the examination from additional coaching for performing, listening and analysis of set works, as well as develop your skills of composition if required. Please tell me beforehand what examination specification you are studying (Edexcel, OCR, AQA or WJEC).
