I love singing and believe that discovering our singing voice is one of the most empowering and liberating things we can do. It is an exciting journey and I truly believe everyone can sing well!
I have over 25 years experience of teaching singing and taught one on one singing lessons at the BRIT School for 21 years until recently moving to Hitchin. I have taught singing to both professionals and amateurs of all levels.
In singing lessons I work on freeing the voice, developing a solid, relaxed breathing technique and teach students to understand how their voice works. I teach all styles of singing including classical, rock, pop and folk. To aid learning I record the piano backings of exercises and songs in the lessons. When they feel ready for it, I encourage students to use both a recording device and a mirror at home while practising, so they can really observe what they are doing. As I was told many years ago by my own piano teacher, we are all our own teacher apart from that (usually) one lesson as week.
I regularly prepare singing students for ABRSM and LCM musical theatre and pop grades and am happy to work with them towards any graded exams they would like to enter.
I also prepare students for auditions, recordings and live performances etc
I am very happy teaching beginners and very much enjoy teaching adult beginners.
