Personal Description:

Hello, my name is Gwen and I'm from New Zealand. I grew up training heavily in dance (ballet, jazz, contemporary and musical theatre) as well as singing and piano. I went on to study opera and classical singing full time at the top music school in NZ for four years with my last year focusing on modern classical and opera singing as well as musical theatre. My first love has always been Musical Theatre, so I left NZ to come study a Master of Arts in Musical Theatre at the Guildford School of Acting here in the UK. In New Zealand I performed in many concerts and shows including 'Cosette' in Les Miserables, 'Sister Mary Robert' in Sister Act and 'Sophie' in Mamma Mia.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught singing, piano, music theory and dance full-time and part-time since 2015. I have taught in groups as well as privately and even ran my own musical theatre classes. I truly love to teach and watch my students confidence grow.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a fairly relaxed teacher, but do expect commitment and practice from the student. I tend to follow more what the student is wanting in terms of style, but will guide them with what I think is best. I will start where they are comfortable and then aim to challenge them (with harder songs, techniques and expanding their style/ genres) as time goes on. It's important to build a technical foundation while also exploring musicianship and performance. More than anything though, I like to increase my students confidence in what they are doing. Learning music is about more than the notes on the page, and I hope to pass that on to my students.
