Voice & Piano
Having trained in piano accompaniment at the RNCM, specialising in singing, I then worked professionally in opera & musical theatre for the next 18 years where I worked with many singers of every kind of voice, coaching them in roles and preparing them for auditions and concerts. During my teaching career I have helped many people to make the most of their voice whether this has been singing for pleasure or preparing for exams and performances. I have also enjoyed teaching people to accompany themselves on piano/keyboard.
I get to know a pupil and then find the way of teaching that most suits them. The most important thing is to make sure lessons are enjoyable and you feel your goals are being achieved.
I am happy to use any style of music - from pop, folk, musicals and classical songs - or a mixture. I can find or make arrangements to suit your current level and vocal style.
I prefer to teach music reading at the same time as the practical playing skills because this will ultimately help you to become an independent learner who doesn't have to rely on a teacher to help you learn a new piece.
I also enjoy teaching people of every age - from age 5 to age 90! So if you want to learn with someone who will build a relationship with you and find the best way to help you achieve your goals in a relaxed yet professional way, then contact me for a chat and to arrange a free trial lesson.
