Notes:

I am a friendly tutor offering private and group lessons in Edinburgh, along side The Phoenix Choir Edinburgh (www.thephoenixchoir.com)

I will help you find your own voice.

Musicians of all ages and abilities are catered for- beginners welcome as well as seasoned singers! (I am fully CRB checked).

When I was initially trained as a singer I was pushed towards sounding a certain way - very musical theatre and classical. It wasn't how I wanted to sound. I have since learnt how to create a new sound with my voice and using it in the ways that I want it to - and have grown to love soul and blues!

I'm a firm believer that everyone has the ability to sing - we all have the same instrument, its just a case of learning to use it!

We will use exercises to look at technique, but always includes songs and styles which you want to learn, with lessons being tailored to each individual.

Through our lessons we will look at techniques such as breathing, control, range, confidence, performance, microphone techniques, projection, diction, tuning, tone, timing.....all of which will be applied to songs which help you improve, and the songs which you want to perform. It is very important to me that you enjoy the music you are singing!

Choirs are a fabulous way of practicing your vocal skills, meeting new people, and singing in an encouraging and engaging environment! I run several choirs in Edinburgh under the umbrella of The Phoenix Choir, including;

Mondays: Leith - Community Choir (7.00-9.00pm Leith Community Centre, Subs £4/week)
Fun, fresh and fabulous community choir open to everyone and anyone - no auditions, and all music is taught by ear so there's no need to read music!

Wednesdays: Edinburgh central - Soul & Gospel Choir (7.00-9.00pm St Columbas by the Castle, Subs £6/week)
Fast-paced, up-beat Soul & Gospel Choir which packs a punch! There is an audition to join this choir, but all parts are taught by ear so there's no need to read music!

Lesson Rates - £25 / 1 hour, £20 / 45 Mins
Group lessons can also be arranged!
