My Mission

Vocal Control & Confidence

My singing lessons are focused on helping my students to develop their vocal control, strength and overall confidence. This is done through blending technical exercises with carefully selected songs, based on a student's musical preferences, to create a course of lessons that aid vocal development.

I teach a basic scientific understanding of the voice, and keep my classes playful by using voice related games to enhance confidence and teach technique.

All Levels Taught

I am here to help complete beginners, as well as intermediates and advanced students preparing for auditions, gigs and studio recording sessions. I welcome students interested in learning to sing as a hobby and for their own enjoyment, as well as those interested in building careers in music.

My lessons take a holistic approach to learning to sing, drawing on many different aspects - from body posture and reducing neck tension to building a student's confidence in their ability to sing.

Prices:


£18 per 1/2 hour
£30 per hour

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

I am passionate about music and love the teacher and student interaction. I strive to provide a positive and inspirational learning environment.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have trained in Popular Music Performance, majoring in Vocals at the Leeds College of Music and then at the University of Chester. From there I went on to do a singing teacher training course, called BAST which has helped me to provide high-quality singing tuition to students of all levels.

I have over 10 years of vocal performance experience in classical, pop and musical theatre, which helps me to understand and teach people with different backgrounds and preferences. It also gives me a wide range of different exercises and approaches to help my students to find their voice in each song that we cover during our lessons.

I am also an active singer, producer and song-writer. My song 'Sky is Falling' reached the semi-finals of the Song of the Year worldwide songwriting competition. I have also performed in Luxembourg with the Studio d’Opera de Luxembourg, as well as at EDM festivals to over 3,000 people.

More About My Lessons

Over the last few years I have taught many students in central London, before relocating to Norfolk and starting to teach students here. I am keen to help my students benefit from the experience I have had working with singers of all levels, ensuring that the lessons that I hold are individual tailored to each student's learning level and utlimate goals for their voice.

Alongside my singing lessons, I am also able to help students interested in developing their songwriting ability. This creative aspect of music is one that can help students find their own voice, reflecting the experiences and dreams that they hold as an individual.

I can also help singers interested in exploring the recording process, helping them understand the interaction between song-writing, singer and music production. Specifically, for the last 2 years I have helped students who are interested to learn how to use Logic Pro X to enable them write, record, mix and release their first single.

Frequently Asked Questions

My lessons are charged at £18 per half hour and £30 per hour lesson.

At the moment all my lessons take place online.

I welcome students from the ages of 6 years old and upwards. I have taught many adult singers over the years as well, there is no upper age limit to book singing lessons.

The frequency of lessons is entirely up to you as a student, however, I would recommend taking consistent lessons - for example, once per week - to enable you to build on each of the skills that you learn during out lessons.

Here at Singing Lessons Norwich, I operate a 48 hour cancellation policy, whereby if a lesson is cancelled within 48 hours of the arranged time then the lesson is charged at full price.
