Personal Description:

Colin is a widely experienced performer in opera, operetta, oratorio and music theatre. He has performed across the whole of the East Midlands and Yorkshire, and has sung opera as far afield as Fidenza in Italy. A former singer with Ex Cathedra, and soloist with The Chamberlain Consort and Birmingham Baroque, Colin's stage roles have ranged from Jenik (Bartered Bride - Smetana), Septimius (Theodora - Handel), Candide (Candide - Bernstein), Alfred (Die Fledermaus - Strauss), David (Company - Sondheim), Cecil (Roberto Devereux - Donizetti), Froh (Das Rheingold - Wagner), Quint (Turn of the Screw - Britten), Gastone (La Traviata - Verdi).

Tutoring Experience:

I have a growing teaching practice in Newark, with tutees ranging in age from 15 to 65. In addition to one-on-one teaching I have run workshops for choirs, both children and adult. I have also run teacher CPD sessions for Sing Up - the Music Manifesto's National Singing Programme. I am a member of the Association of Teachers of Singing (AOTOS), the British Voice Association (BVA), and the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM).

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching singing is about finding a space, both physical and mental, where the tutee is able to find their natural voice. I approach this by developing a rapport with students and helping them to shed some inhibitions and preconceptions about making "singing" sounds. Where tutees wish to work towards exams, I can prepare and enter students for ABRSM exams, preparing songs and also practice in Aural tests.
