Hello! My name is Rachel and I am a professional singing teacher located in Leicester.
I approach learning to sing in a calm and patient manner whilst learning all of the essentials along the way.
I am proud to provide very high quality singing tuition, helping students of all levels to develop their singing ability. Complete beginners welcome!
I teach students from the ages of 5 years old and upwards - including many adult students of all learning abilities.
I can teach you a wide range of genres from Classical to Pop & Musical Theatre. I use the classical techniques to improve your development as a singer.
I have previously taught groups of children aged 4 to 10.
My hour lessons are designed to help you learn how to sing in the most efficient way possible.
I have found from experience that hour-long lessons are ideal for helping my students to significantly develop their vocal ability. This enables us to really focus on gaining technical improvements before the voice gets too tired.
I am an experienced vocalist who has been singing for as long as I can remember. Back home in Bedfordshire, I have worked with a singing group for children aged four to ten, working as an assistant and occasionally leading sessions. I also spent a year co-leading my local school's year 3 and 4 choirs.
I have a personal interest in Classical music and Musical Theatre, and over the years have performed in many musical productions in my spare time, as well as acting as the musical director for my GCSE drama performance.
I am located very centrally in an easy to find area with parking nearby. It is even walkable if you live in the city centre. For more information about location please send me an email.
I love to build my lessons around your own musical tastes which I find really helps in keeping the lessons as enjoyable as possible. I like to make sure every lesson has a fun and exciting approach as well as containing all the essential technique and theory.
I currently take most of my lessons from dedicated teaching studio based in the city centre. It is located on 44 Humberstone Gate, Leicester LE1 3PJ and is a great place to develop your singing ability.
I have created a comfortable learning space, with all the resources that we need for you to unlock your full potential.
