Personal Description:

I know you want to express yourself with ease and freedom; who doesn’t? I also know it can be frustrating and challenging. That, I understand wholeheartedly. Let’s not allow fear to stand in the way of your expression!



Hi, I’m Cal:



A Vocal & Performance Coach by trade, pasta enthusiast and Star Wars fanatic by night.

Throughout my career I have received insightful lessons and profound advice from teachers and fellow performers alike, ranging from leading vocal science experts, classical and contemporary mentors, innovative songwriters and music production icons. I strongly believe these dedicated professionals nurtured the best within me, and all their students, and I endeavour to do the same with you.

Training Specialisms:

I specialise in problem-solving and confidence-building with vocalists and instrumentalists, and preparing students for auditions and performances. As a Vocal Coach I offer a unique perspective on public speaking and presentation skills, focussing on vocal tone and body language, which combine to make up 93% of communication.


After graduating with a BA (Hons) in Songwriting and Vocal Education, I started teaching professionally, delivering hundreds of hours of private tuition and coaching multiple successful Brit School entrants. I enjoy working with students who seek technical proficiency, but above all, I encourage them to channel emotion and express their creativity. I am grateful for all that have learnt from the unique perspectives of both my tutors and my students, which continue to inform my methodology, supported by ongoing professional development.

Training Methods:

My teaching approach is Student Centred Learning. Together, we will find your authentic self. Exploring many aspects of presentation, we’ll move through the following stages:



Building: Creating a solid technical foundation and healthy, focused understanding of your voice and body language, based on ease and comfort.



Balance: Balancing technical abilities with expressive and stylistic elements linked to your natural movements and pattens.



Exploration: Playing with colour, tone and authenticity with a focus on illuminating your desired characteristics (which you already process).



Play: Performance coaching with sole focus on delivering a confident, fluid and expressive product, with a view to being connected, emotive and present.



Utilising an online studio suite, students have 24/7 access to book lessons, receive feedback and download an abundance of free resources. With automated text and email reminders for upcoming lessons and events, you can concentrate on what matters to you: learning, growing and communicating.

The need for self-expression runs deep in all of us. Tell me what you'd like to achieve from our sessions. I want to help you.



Let’s play!
