Personal Description:

I graduated with a Distinction in Vocal Studies from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and work as a professional singer and singing and piano teacher. I graduated with a 2.1 in Music at Kings College London for my undergraduate studies, majoring in Performance. I hold ABRSM grade 8 in Singing, Clarinet, Bassoon and Piano and ABRSM diploma in Singing. As a soloist I regularly sing operatic roles and solos within oratorio works, as well as performing in recitals and concerts. I sing professionally in many London-based choirs.

Tutoring Experience:

I teach singing at the Godolphin & Latymer School, Greenwich Music School and Harvington Preparatory School. I also teach many pupils privately in the area around Blackheath and Lewisham. I am experienced in preparing students to achieve excellent results in exams and obtain music scholarships at leading schools.

I’m an experienced teacher of all different levels and teach classical, musical theatre and pop genres. I teach singing and piano to a very wide age range of pupils, from 5 years old to all ages of adult learners.

My teaching experience started with a strong private practice in London and later in Aylesbury. I have worked as a singing and piano teacher for the Buckinghamshire Music Trust and in primary and secondary schools in the Buckinghamshire area, such as The Misbourne School in Great Missenden. I have also taught larger singing classes for Stagecoach and have worked as a deputy teacher for various Saturday music schools, which included large classes of Music Theory and the Kodaly method.

I have delivered musical workshops in schools for children with learning difficulties and care homes for the elderly. I also worked as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language to both children and adults.

Tutoring Approach:

As well as introducing a sound technique I will always aim to make my lessons enjoyable and something to look forward to. A key aim for me is to provide a relaxed environment for my lessons and to promote an atmosphere of trying one’s best despite the result. I am patient and will adapt my teaching to the individual by helping them to learn in the best way possible for them, ensuring motivation to practice and making music an enjoyable experience.

I have a detailed knowledge of vocal technique and am committed to helping my pupils find greater vocal ease through improved technique. I am also constantly performing myself, so I know how to approach giving one's best performance.

I am happy both to prepare pupils to take musical examinations and to teach them without exams according to preference.
