This is how 2 referees rated David:
**ONLINE LESSONS AVAILABLE**
I am an opera singer and experienced singing tutor based in central York, having recently relocated from London. I hold two postgraduate degrees in singing and maintain a busy teaching diary alongside my ongoing performance commitments. I'm comfortable working with singers of any age and level, with a central focus on healthy vocal technique to support numerous musical styles as well as acting or public speaking.
My primary availability is currently weekdays and Saturdays, either daytime or evening, around my existing teaching timetable. I'm always happy to hear from potential new pupils and will try my best to fit you in to my schedule.
LOCATION & RATES
Ordinarily I teach from home, but currently am only offering online sessions until further notice at the rates listed here. I hope to be able to resume in-person teaching as soon as it is safe to do so.
I have been teaching privately for the last six years, and am now looking to expand my studio in York following relocation.
My teaching experience spans work with all ages, backgrounds and experience, and I enjoy teaching at every level.
I teach a simple and easy-to-grasp singing technique that can be applied and expanded across a number of different vocal disciplines. Opera and classical are my speciality but I can also teach "belt" for musical theatre students and can hone a true "legit" sound. I am also a confident French pronunciation coach (not a language tutor) if that is where your passion lies.
I can offer regular lessons to support you in the development of your singing goals, but am equally delighted to take on pupils for short-term or one-off sessions in preparation for performances or auditions. In addition, if you are an individual looking to improve your speaking voice for acting or public speaking, I can offer simple techniques to help you with this and make significant changes to the quality and stamina of your voice and breath.
I also offer Music Theory tuition up to Grade 3, which can be provided as a standalone or in tandem with singing studies.
- I offer a no-obligation first lesson (priced as standard), which includes an informal assessment of a student's needs and - where appropriate - a brief follow-up conversation with a parent/guardian to outline my findings and ideas for ongoing support.
- I have a strict 24-hour cancellation policy, which applies to both students and myself.

David has great enthusiasm each and every lesson and is continuing to build my confidence in areas I had very little in. I highly recommend David and trust his guidance
He was ably to connect with my 7 year old straight away and his friendly approach makes my son love singing lessons the most!
I would warmly suggest anyone who is thinking to have singing lesson to try them with David as he is truly great!!
The lessons are very relaxed and fun, David always make sure I’m not nervous, feeling insecure or scared of singing something.
I’m already looking forward to my next lesson.
