I teach one-to-one singing and music theory lessons in South East London to help students prepare for exams or for their own personal enjoyment. While I specialise in classical singing, I also have some experience of musical theatre, pop and jazz. I take pride in helping students to realise their potential as expressive musicians and creative problem-solvers.

All lessons follow the same basic structure. We begin by warming up on voiced and unvoiced consonants to ensure the breath is connected and supported. We then move on to short pitch and rhythm exercises to develop the student's musical understanding.

We spend most of the lesson working through a song in more detail to improve vocal production, musical/poetic interpretation and overall confidence. Songs are chosen based on the student's vocal range, ability and interests. I am happy to suggest repertoire and equally happy to accept requests!

We conclude by discussing areas where the student has improved and areas to practise before the next lesson. Even a small amount of deliberate, considered practice is highly important for learning effectively and for developing a sense of independence and self-reliance.

This basic lesson structure is tailored to the student's interests and priorities. For example, we can focus more on ear training and sight-singing to prepare for an exam, or we can include more composition, improvisation and songwriting if the student is keen to make their own music.
