Originally hailing from the Ribble Valley in Lancashire I graduated my undergraduate BMus in Vocal Performance in July 2018, from The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff. After progressing on to The David Seligman Opera School, under the tutelage of Donald Maxwell, I graduated in July 2020 with distinction in MA Advanced Operatic Performance.
I have had the pleasure of performing in masterclasses for a number of notable singing tutors and coaches including: Adrian Thompson, Susan Bullock, John Fisher, Michael Pollock, Ingrid Surgenor, Joseph Middleton and Simon Lepper.
I made his operatic debut in 2016, performing the role of Willi Graf in Welsh National Youth Opera’s critically acclaimed production of Kommilitonen! by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, directed by Polly Graham and conducted by Alice Farnham. In 2019 I returned to Welsh National Opera to make my company debut as ‘Second Prison Guard’ in Dead Man Walking by Jake Heggie which featured as part of WNO’s 2019 'Freedom' Season. For the last two years, I has been fortunate enough to join Maestro Carlo Rizzi and the Orchestra of Welsh National Opera for the annual RWCMD Winter Opera Gala where most recently, I joined fellow David Seligman Opera School alumni in celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the college.
Professionally, I have had the pleasure of singing main roles with many notable companies, including Sinfonia Cymru and Welsh National Opera. Additionally, I appear regularly as a concert and oratorio soloist across the United Kingdom, and have featured in several recordings and live broadcasts for BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio Wales.
I have been teaching singing, alongside my opera studies, since September 2016 – and can offer expertise in many different musical genres and styles, including classical, folk, musical theatre or more popular styles. I believe that a good basic technique is essential for paving the way to vocal success; however singing can also encourage vocal health, improve breathing and boost your confidence!
Although I mainly work as a classical singer, I am experienced in many different genres and styles of music. Whether it be classical, folk, musical theatre or more popular styles, I believe a good basic technique is essential for paving the way to vocal success.
I have always believed singing to be a journey. The most important thing for a singer starting off is that you enjoy your own journey and the process of learning how to firstly, discover your own voice and secondly, realise what it is you have to say with it. Regardless of age, gender, or experience, I really believe everybody has a unique voice and something exciting to share and hopefully through our lessons, we’ll discover what that is together!
Individually however, I pride myself on being able to tailor every lesson to suit the needs and requirements of each pupil. Singing is a very personal journey and can sometimes seem quite daunting for some, however through my warm demeanour and accessible teaching style - I feel I’m able to quickly put students at ease.
