If you want to free up your natural singing voice, learn how to emotionally connect with a song, and find your own way of engaging with your audience by removing ‘blocks’ and finding the true meaning in the lyrics, I can help you. Perhaps you need to overcome nerves and practice your repertoire next to a supportive, professional ‘ear’? I also specialize in one or two-off coaching sessions.

Let me guide you to a place of ease and enjoyment with your singing. I will focus on whatever you want out of your sessions, whether that be:
- Vocal coaching
- Audition preparation
- Performance coaching
- Acting the song
- artist mentoring
Students may bring in their own material to learn, based on their music interests and voice type. Of course I can also guide students in their song choices. Lessons will take place at my house. We will begin with a warm-up and vocal exercises before getting straight into working on your song. Please bring good quality backing tracks or YouTube links on your device.
I would describe my teaching style as informal and intuitive. I take my cues from the student and will adapt to whatever will help them learn, grow, and achieve their goals. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
