Book amazing singing lessons with local Singing teacher Michael Smith.
Hello! My name is Michael Smith and I am a professional singing tutor located in Stroud.
I offer interesting vocal lessons in a variety of different genres.
My lessons are always of the highest quality and I like to make sure I maintain this high level.
I teach and have experience in teaching a wide range of age groups. I would however recommend starting no younger than 10.
As a vocalist I love a wide range of genres and this is always reflected in my teaching. I will teach you the genres that you want to learn regardless of what they are.
If you wish, I can also teach you the basics on guitar & how to use this to compliment your voice.
I offer both hour and half-hour lessons. Please take the time to read the notes below before deciding what is best suited to you. .
My half-hour lessons are best suited to my younger learners who perhaps don't have the longest of attention spans or for those who prefer to learn in small chunks. Two half-hour lessons per week would be ideal to see some good progress.
My hour-long lessons are by far my most popular option. An hours lesson every week is enough to really progress your voice and your understanding of music. I would recommend this option to ages 12+.
I am a qualified and experienced teacher who as well as having been singing for as long as I can remember.
As well as being qualified I love to perform as much as I can. I currently play in a few UK bands Huw Eddy & The Carnival and have regular tours and gigs.
From experience I have found out that students who enjoy themselves rapidly progress. Because of this, I will always make sure that my lessons are highly enjoyable and informative.
In our lesson's we will focus on building solid foundations in terms of a strong and healthy technique which will filter into your chosen style. It's about working from the ground up so that you can unlock your voices full potential.
I teach from a dedicated teaching space in Stroud. This is a great place to learn because you can really feel at home and comfortable whilst learning.
Second to lessons being enjoyable, being comfortable is also a very important aspect of improving your voice.
Music Courses in Stroud:
There are a few options available when it comes to music courses in the area. Below are the couple that I would recommend.
If you are inexperienced when it comes to the music industry and would like to get a foot in the door then I would recommend checking out the music and music technology courses available at Stroud College. They have some great options available for those who want to get a foothold in the industry & understand how it works.
The other option we have in the area would be Gloucestershire Academy Of Music. Here you can take your musical education further but taking a more classical approach. They also have some great courses available for kids.
Music Venues in Stroud:
Stoud is only a small area so there are a few small music venues and pubs that are worth visiting. Here are a couple I would recommend
Firstly the most obvious option would be The Prince Albert Inn. This is a small pub come venue that has a great selection of live music throughout the week. Make sure and check their website for gig listings. You can find them on Rodborough Hill, Stroud GL5 3SS, UK.
The other option in the area would be The Subscription Rooms. This is a slightly bigger venue that usually hosts a few slightly more widely known acts. you can find them on George St, Stroud GL5 1AE.
