As a local Leicester girl I learnt singing, flute, piano and guitar as a child in school. Then followed a Foundation Scholarship in singing and piano aged 18 to study at the Royal College of Music, London and a successful performing career spending two decades singing around the world working with the worlds greatest orchestras (Israel Philharmonic), choirs (BBC Singers), radio stations, music festivals (Salzburg) , opera houses (Milan and Bregenz) and recording CD's specialising in contemporary classical music, whilst also teaching privately from home.
I've taught private singing and piano students since 1987 as well as teaching at Ratcliffe College, Leicestershire in the early 90's. For the past 12 years I have taught at Uppingham School and Oakham School as a Visiting Teacher of Singing. My first singing pupil won the BBC Choirgirl of the Year competition and went on to become a professional singer and teacher herself. Other ex-pupils are performing and teaching in Musical Theatre across Europe. Currently I teach children and adults from age 8-88, choir singers, pop singers studying to enter the profession both in teaching and performance, rock singers, singers taking exams and diplomas and pupils who learn for fun as a hobby. I also have an interest in vocal rehabilitation and help those referred to me for singing lessons after illness or injury who are struggling with their voices. I teach all genres and styles of music and coach songs in all major European languages.
My approach to singing teaching is to provide an insightful, inspiring, enthusiastic and yet calm, happy environment where singing is a great thing to do! Singing makes us feel good! It communicates and delivers expression and is a very personal thing. Everyone can sing - some think they can't or have been told they shouldn't (but with a little help in the right direction massive progress can be made) and I find it rewarding helping people get to know their own sound and what it can develop into at whatever level they want to discover singing. Fundamentally singing needs to be done healthily to avoid vocal damage and strain so I concentrate on the pupil understanding their own body - their vocal apparatus/their instrument - and how it works so that they can feel confidence in their control of it and how their posture supports it. That's where craft and mastery can grow!
