I empower singers to free vocal expression and sing with confidence. To release the voice and breathing and get the fullest vocal strength. Lessons focus on Alexander’s discoveries.
Keen enthusiasts to professional singers, discover the art of freeing your voice and the subtle breathing mechanism.
Confidence and vocal strength are by-products of good natural pitch I work primarily with the HOW of how you sing!

Why learn with me? I am an Alexander Technique teacher and base my singer and instrumental sessions on this powerful method.  I have taught singers from classical to contemporary, modern, pop, jazz and folk singers as well as choral groups.

I conduct speciality workshops with Adult Education, small groups and festival events.  I’ve worked with school choirs St Kentigerns and Baradene colleges, supporting them in their search for excellence.

Thank you so much Jann. I really appreciate what you're doing for me! I'm so glad I came across your profile on the directory. I've only been to one lesson, but I can already tell I'll be growing a lot, not just a singer, but as an individual from you and I'm looking forward to it! The confidence we addressed really helped. It feels more like “I can be myself”

"Jann will tell you that before my first lesson I was literally folding myself up and was quite visibly harbouring a decent amount of self doubt that had been really affecting my ability to sing. After the first lesson and even more so after the second, the positive effect of my general mood has been really interesting to say the least and quite obvious both to myself and the people around me. And the effect on my voice has been pretty amazing to experience. After years of straining and tension I'm remembering what it feels like to sing with ease and confidence again; to find joy in singing to the people around me. I sung in front of workmates properly for the first time in years and I actually felt proud of my voice today and I'm really amazed to be honest. It's been so long and I've missed it so much. Definitely very worthwhile to pursue, words are hollow but you will see for yourself. All the best".
