Personal Description:

I`m Blaise - Bass, professionally trained opera singer and qualified singing teacher based in London. I did my Masters Degree in Opera Performance at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (RWCMD) and have been working with UK`s Major companies such as the Royal Opera House, Opera North and English National Opera and Internationally. Finalist of prestigious competitions such as Toulouse International Competition and BBC Cardiff singer of the world.

I teach from my flate, online or I can travel to you.

Tutoring Experience:

Over 5 years experience of private teaching and coaching professional singers, students and amateurs of different ages (15 year and over) in the UK and abroad.
Blaise is very experienced in building and developing a heathy vocal technique which is important for every singer.

Tutoring Approach:

The object of vocal study is to make the voice irreproachable in its intonation, firm, strong, flexible, extended, and to correct its faults. Additionally the vocal study aims to develop the musicality of the pupil which includes the art of phrasing, to familiarize him with the different styles, and to develop his expression.

A good method of singing must always be in harmony with nature and the laws of health. Every voice is unique and special, therefore the importance of finding the appropriate way of working with every student depending their needs.

It is important to keep in mind that just like speaking, singing is a way to communicate (express) our emotions (feelings), singing is an extension of the spoken voice. Every singer must aim to produce beautiful, powerful and most importantly healthy sound which must be free of any unnecessary tensions and discomfort. So, by trial and error, perseverance and guided the sensations, we find the 'natural' sound which will be developed by progressive exercises that will strengthen the voice and encourage it to become more flexible and will progressively develop its power.

My job as singing teacher is to guide the singer in the process of learning their instrument, building a solid vocal technique, finding their own voice and maintain the voice in good shape. Singing should be free of tension, effort and discomfort. JUST FUN!
