I began teaching music (recorder) whilst still at school and have coached and taught singing, individually and in workshops, since graduating from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (GGSM). Although I have specialised at an international level in Opera and Concert singing, I have also professionally sung jazz, musicals and even indian raags and african chants. Good singing does not depend on the style but on a healthy technique.

A good technique will keep your voice healthy and serve any musical style. I will work with you to release and develop your true voice. I can work with you on interpretation, on your pronunciation and understanding (I am fluent in German and also speak French and Italian), and on your performance and comfort onstage. This is all part of your singing-self. I believe that if you don't feel good about your singing then you cannot reach your potential - I'll do my best to get you there.
