Information About Jake - Chichester teacher - (9 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Jake:
I grew up and received my schooling in Greater Manchester, after which I enjoyed a very successful spell as a Choral Scholar at the Worcester College, Oxford (including spells with the choirs of Magdalen College and Merton College, as well as Schola Cantorum of Oxford).
After graduating from University, I sang in the choir of Truro Cathedral for two years, followed by two years in the Choir of Norwich Cathedral. I am now a Lay Vicar at Chichester Cathedral, where I sing with their noted choir of men and boys.
As well as my sizeable choral portfolio (which includes many concert and radio appearances, as well as CD and DVD recordings and both British and international tours), I have a great deal of solo experience across both the concert and opera stages. My solo work takes me around the UK and abroad, which has included appearances in Hungary, Belgium, and the United States of America.
Friendly, approachable, and professional, teaching is something I very much enjoy. I am passionate about teaching and helping my students to develop their knowledge and skills, as well as building their confidence.
I run a teaching practice in the centre of Chichester, where I teach singing, music theory, classical languages and classical literature.
As well as teaching privately for the last five years, I have worked as a choir leader for the Choir Outreach Scheme at Truro Cathedral, as well as working as a vocal coach for New Cornwall Opera and for the Diocese of Truro, where I taught singing and musical leadership to clergy from across Cornwall.
I have also worked as a Vocal Strategist for the Norfolk Music Hub, where I delivered vocal workshops and training to teachers and choir leaders in Norfolk schools.
My singing teaching is based upon understanding the voice and its natural function within the body as a whole. This is an approach that involves *no* touching, and for those under 18, a parent/guardian is always invited to sit in. You are invited to discuss my singing teaching with me further.
I am happy to teach singers of all ages and abilities, whether you want to work towards singing examinations, or just want to improve your technique and learn casually.
I ask for a student to try their best - as long as they do, they will be met with an enthusiastic, patient, and understanding teacher.
I have a fully enhanced DBS disclosure, as well as safeguarding training validated by the NSPCC.
