If you are interested in fun vocal lessons that will make you grow, you are in the right place.
If you have ever had a bad experience learning music before, stressful lessons, low self-esteem or somebody telling you you cannot do it - let me help you find joy through singing again.
Whether you prefer jazz, classical, pop, rock, musical theatre or other styles (heavy metal growling and screaming perhaps?), I am happy to teach them all. All styles of music are beautiful and I would encourage you to experiment or try out your voice in different ones.
I am qualified to teach ages 1 - 99 through music grades 1 - 8 (ABRSM; Trinity; Rockschool). I have experience teaching individually as well as in an ensemble and class of 30. We can arrange lessons at my home, at a music school in West London, or at your home, whichever you prefer. I believe in positive reinforcement techniques and making lessons fun, at whatever level. While vocals would be the main subject of lessons, we would also cover music theory.

We would focus on:
• Pitching - singing in tune
• Developing tone and range
• Different breathing techniques
• Expanding repertoire and different styles
• Lyrical interpretation
• Understanding harmony
• Basic instrumental (piano / guitar / bass) skills
• Personal development
I work with children, teenagers and adults, adapting the programme to their needs. Some of my students prefer to focus on voice coaching for speaking and acting, giving presentations and other public speaking roles. Others need a boost in stage body language and performance confidence. Singing and music is still at the heart of lessons, as it is the easiest and most enjoyable way to develop said skills.
You are the boss, and I will make sure the programme, pace, style suits you, is challenging, yet fun and rewarding.
My ultimate goal is for you be able to make your own musical decisions, improve with self-feedback and give you the tools to become your own teacher.
I teach in London and Milton Keynes areas, students can come to my home studio or I can travel to them, I also teach online, via Skype.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or even if you just want to chat. I look forward to hearing from you!
P.S. Quick piece of advice: Many music teachers teach out of necessity, because they are not successful enough as musicians to make a living. Be careful when choosing a teacher and find one, who emits passion and love for the profession! Otherwise, you might have a negative experience with learning music, especially damaging for young children. I specialise in working with those, who might have had their confidence harmed by such experiences.
