Book industry standard singing lessons with professional teacher James Fergus.
Hello! My name is James and I am a professional singing tutor located in Norwich.
I offer professional singing lessons for students of all ages in a wide variety of styles.
I like to maintain a high standard of tuition at all times. I will always make sure my lessons are enjoyable and informative.
I have a great amount of experience in teaching students of all ages both young and old.
I don't like to be tied down to one genre and I like to make sure my lessons also follow this outlook as well, I can teach you any genre that you wish to learn. .
As well as general learning I also offer theory lessons (ABRSM). If this is something you would like to pursue, please let me know.
Hour long or half-hour lessons available in a wide range of genres & designed with your musical tastes in mind.
My half-hour lessons are best suited to younger students or for those who prefer to learn in small doses. One or two lessons per week should be enough to see some real progress in a few months.
My hour-long lessons are probably my most popular option. I would recommend an hour-long lesson per week for the best results.
'James is full of enthusiasm and his passion is always obvious. I've learnt more in the past 6 weeks with him than the previous 6 months on my own. A great teacher all around.'
'James is an engaging & friendly teacher, who always encourages me to improve. I've been learning faster than I could have expected.'
'I really enjoy my singing lessons with James. James works with me in a co-operative, student-led manner and adapts his teaching to suit my learning style and meet my disability needs.'
I am an experienced musician who has been singing and performing for over 15 years. From the age of 7 I was taught the piano, singing from the age of 9 and it has been a big part of my life ever since.
I think that anyone with a voice can sing. It is all about how to harness it correctly and this is where I come in. I will make sure to help you nurture and train your voice correctly.
I will always make sure that my lessons are as enjoyable as possible while still maintaining a great understanding of theory & technique. From experience, students who enjoy their lessons will always see faster progress.
A big part of my teaching plan is to make sure you are aiming towards learning the artists that you enjoy and love. I really feel that the best way to learn music is through the music that inspires you.
I am currently a mobile singing teacher which means that I will travel to you for your lessons. I think this is a great way to learn because you will be learning from a familiar and comfortable environment.
