Book lessons with professional singing teacher Sam Curson.
Hello! My name is Sam and I am a professional singing teacher in Derby.
I offer high-quality lessons in the Derby area.
I have proudly been working as a vocal coach for ten years. I have successfully helped students with school and college auditions and get professional work. My industry experience has enabled me to specialise in vocal technique, performance, audition preparation and examinations.
I believe everyone should be able to feel the benefits of singing, this is why I offer lessons to students of all ages from 6+.
As fundamental techniques for singing are similar accross genres I am pleased to offer lessons in any style of your choosing, however I specialise in the styles of Musical theatre, Pop, Rock, Jazz and Classical.
During my time as a vocal coach I have led vocal, musical theatre and drama workshops at various schools and colleges. Most recently I was the musical director for Leicester Theatre Group's lastest production of Boogie Nights. Other musical work credits include Seussical (MD-Leicester Theatre Group), Les Miserables (Vocal Coach- Leicester Theatre Group), Lift Musical (Vocal Coach- CF Theatre Company).
Prices for high-quality singing lessons in Derby. I recommend all my students take lessons weekly for maximum progress in a shorter space of time.
Half an hour lessons are best suited to younger learners and beginners looking for an introduction into singing,
1 hour lessons are much better suited to students who wish to progress quickly in a shorter space of time with a tailored lesson plan.
