Notes:

I believe that in order to create the best learning experience for the individual, when teaching one must adjust oneís approach to suit the learning style of the particular tutee. As such, I begin every programme of study with an informal chat to learn about my new pupilís past musical experience and to discuss their goals, objectives and hopes for future achievement. These goals we revisit at strategic moments during the course of study to help students to recognise their development and to establish new targets.

I believe that music should be enjoyable. I originally turned to singing teaching upon hearing a number of the members of my parish church declare that although they enjoyed singing they werenít comfortable doing so because they had been told as children that they lacked musical ability or had been accused by teachers of deliberately singing out of tune. Since that time they had been too afraid to let their voices sound out. This knowledge shocked me. To tackle this issue I set up a singing summer school and together we gained the confidence to perform several times in three and four parts, both a cappella and with piano accompaniment.

From February 2013 I held the post of Private Singing Tutor and Vocal Coach at Aberystwyth Arts Centre. As a teacher I have worked with a wide array of pupils of varying ages and abilities and with different objectives. These have included experienced, older singers adjusting to their changing vocal registers or preparing for competitions, children and novices eager to begin their vocal journeys, choristers in need of assistance with learning complex harmonies, and academics hoping to gain confidence and vocal dexterity for use in public speaking amongst many others.

I use tools and techniques drawn from my own classical training to aid individuals in a wide variety of styles and genres. The interests, requirements and vocal styles of my past pupils have been so far flung as to include the following disparate forms:
- Folk
- Earth-Music Channelling
- Christian Hymns
- Heavy Metal
- Pop
- Musical Theatre
- Disney
- Rock
- Choral Works
- Operetta
- Plainchant/Monastic Chant
- Jazz
- Solo (classical)
- Speech Production

My classes generally consist of a combination of technical exercises and studies alongside the use of carefully selected repertoire targeted towards improving specific areas of concern. I believe in creating an engaging, encouraging environment in which I can work in partnership with the pupil to help them learn at a rate which is appropriate for them as an individual.

Voice, instrumental and theory lessons may be booked in slots of 30 or 60 minutes. For young children 20 minute lessons are also available where appropriate.
