Information About Ellie - Newham teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Ellie:
I am a vocalist who specialises in Jazz, but also does Soul, Pop, Motown and Musical Theatre. I regularly sing in venues around London and the UK, and have performed across the world; most notably in New York, Frankfurt, Berlin and Pretoria. Venues I have performed at include Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, the Palace of Westminster, the ZK Matthews Hall (University of South Africa, Pretoria), the British Ambassador's Residence (Berlin), the Mandarin Oriental (London) and the London Palladium Theatre. I recently won third place in the Unisa International Vocal Competition, and am also a Vocal chair with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Great Britain.
I have taught pupils in individual and group settings across a wide variety of ages and experience levels; I have had several private pupils, one of whom recently recorded her debut album, and have taken group sessions and workshops (including creative composition, choir leading, technique and repertoire classes) with adults, teens, and primary school age children.
I also completed the ADPA Level 1 teaching qualification and received a distinction, as well as taking various teaching courses as part of my degree; these focused on creative pedagogy, workshop delivery, teaching groups of mixed experience, and teaching technique.
I believe that the most important part of learning any skill is enjoying yourself, so I make sure to end every lesson with some free time to have fun and do some free singing. Depending on the desired focus of the student, I set some tasks (technical, stylistic, or theory-based) to practise in between lessons, though I appreciate that everyone has different time commitments and I am very flexible. This is the same in my approach to lesson times; I am happy for a lesson to be moved or cancelled up to 24 hours beforehand, after which I charge a cancellation fee.
