Bio

Verity is passionate about the arts and has recently moved back to NZ from living in London for the past 10 years. Originally making the move after being accepted into Guildford School of Acting, she gained her Masters in Musical Theatre and continued on to the West End and international stage in shows such as Evita, Cats, West Side Story, Children Of Eden and many more.

Teaching up to date, London based singing techniques used on the professional scene, she is helping pave the way for young, driven kiwis wanting to take the plunge and pursue their dreams further afield. Classically trained in singing and violin, Verity is more than familiar with the rigid foundations and discipline required in building solid technique, having also studied under singing coach РRoss Campbell, Head of Royal Academy of Music in London. With a Bachelor of Music degree in jazz singing, she can help bring to light authentic style by listening to the true way each individual produces sound. Verity is available for private coaching in musical theatre, jazz, pop, classical, songwriting and acting through song as well as sharing knowledge in industry level audition preparation.


Teaching Info

A strong believer that good technique should be heard but not seen, her lessons are tailored to each individual and will consist of building a strong foundation through simple exercises, which are then woven into songs in whichever style is required. Last but not least, the finishing touches will be focused on developing an emotional connection to translate to the audience.

Music theory lessons can be taught through any method. Verity is familiar with ABRSM, Trinity and Lina Ng.
