My Mission

Learn a Variety of Styles

Since joining Brasil's Conservatory Carlos Gomes in 1989, I have studied the art of singing in great detail under international masters of the craft.

Having being taught many techniques and methods that have remained a basis of my own performances throughout the years, it is now my aim to extend this knowledge on to any budding vocalists who have a drive for excellence!

My Experience as a Teacher

During my time in the US studying at the University of Missouri, I enjoyed many opportunities teaching voice technique to undergraduates. Teaching advanced classes early on in my career gave me the valuable insight I needed to confidently guide others of all ability levels.

Studying with the support of internationally renowned performers and coaches also provided me with a great wealth of information regarding education. I discovered many exercises, methods and important presentational skills that I now proudly integrate into my own lessons.

My passion for guiding musicians and encouraging expression has since played a vital part in my musical endeavors, both on and off the stage. Upon return to Brasil in 2003, I co-founded the Eretz Brasilis ensemble, which would go on to perform traditional Jewish music for a decade.

More About My Lessons

In my lessons, I always ensure a relaxed and positive atmosphere where students can feel entirely at ease. Singing is an extremely expressive art form, so it is important that my learners feel completely settled during classes in order to make the most of their learning experience.

Though I keep my lessons fun and enjoyable, productivity and efficiency of time is also a key factor. Progressing on any instrument requires concentration and dedication, so it is my responsibility to conduct classes that keep students challenged and moving forward.

I tailor all aspects of my lessons to my students' needs. In order to keep learners motivated and excited throughout their journey, they must be reaching strategically set goals that are gauged with their own stage of life, development and musical interests in mind. I take great care in accounting for each of my students' individual traits to help get them further, quicker.

Frequently Asked Questions

My lessons are charged at a fixed rate of £20 per hour.

Lessons usually take place from my home teaching space on Portland Street North in Ashton-under-Lyne, OL6 7BS. I am also able to offer lessons from the comfort of your own home during either a visit from myself or an online meeting via Skype, Zoom or FaceTime. Online lessons tend to work particularly well for those with busy schedules or awkward hours, but can also be of great convenience to individuals further afield seeking specialist guidance.

I teach all ages from young adults upwards of 17 years old, to senior members of the community. It is never too late to start learning a new skill and it is always a pleasure to teach an array of ages!

You are certainly not required to attend lessons each week, however I do advise students try to keep gaps between meetings at a maximum of two weeks. This is so that your muscles and mind remain challenged and developing, which in turn will allow you to make the most of your lessons.

Life can sometimes throw surprises our way, so cancellations are absolutely fine. However, I must insist that in the interest of keeping my time and your money well spent, you notify me of any changes to our agreed time slot 48 hours or more prior to the lesson.
