Information About Kristen - Brentwood teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Kristen:
Hi my name is Kristen, I have had a passion for singing and the performance arts since I was a very young child. As a young teenager I began performing at gigs and jams especially in traditional Irish music. I developed an interest in theatre where I have played the parts of Sandy in Grease, Fiona in Shrek the Musical, Elle from Legally Blonde and Annie in Annie. I placed 4th in the All Ireland Community Games and took part in the XFactor 2015 as well as recording my own single that aired on our local radio station. I have used my voice to raise money for several charitable events including the Burren Chernoble Project and other local charities. I maintain an active social media platform on youtube and facebook where I share my own covers of songs, some of which I have used when tutoring before due to their vocal diversity as well as being fun and interactive for students to learn. I have achieved a grade 4 in singing but I mostly do it because I am passionate I have performed at weddings, churches and other events. As much as I have achieved I did not start out being very confident which was a key element when performing for my A-Level practical exam. My teaching approach is very much focused on self-confidence as that is when a voice thrives. This is probably why everyone has a 'shower voice'. My goal is to make that shower voice your performing voice and provide you with the neccesary techniques to maintain a trained vocal.
I have tutored several children aged between 10-14 on their vocal range. I ensure to adapt my teaching style to each student individually to ensure that everyone learns in a way they feel comfortable. All my students have passed their relevant grades, as well as gaining confidence in their singing abilities.
I have a relaxed but focused approach to tutoring. The intial lessons are based solely around breathing techniques and posture as these are usually places where bad habits are picked up that effect the ability to sustain your vocals and reach those crucial high notes. I can work on material provided to me which I have done in the past for students taking their grades or I can create a plan to tailor the genre the student would like.
