My love and passion for music date back to my early childhood, having had piano lessons from the age of six and singing tuition from the age of twelve. Following on from sixth form education, I continued to expand my musical training at Exeter University, studying for both a degree in Theatre Arts and a Diploma in Singing. My studies continued at Newman College in Birmingham, where I completed a Post Graduate Certificate for Teaching. I enjoy singing and performing music from a range of genres of music, from the classics through to more contemporary popular music. I also thoroughly enjoy teaching musical skills to others, seeing the pleasure that music can give to people as well as assisting pupils with reaching their full potential. Throughout the National Lockdowns due to the Covid Pandemic, I have continued to teach offering all tuition online. From June 2021 onwards, lessons can be provided in person (with all required Covid Safety measures in place), or online.
I have over twenty-five years teaching experience, both in a school setting and more recently (last five years) running my own business from my home offering tuition for young children through to adults in singing, piano and music theory. More than half of my pupils choose to enter music examinations and I have a 100% pass rate - all pupils achieving merit or above. I have also successfully helped several pupils with auditions for music college, conservatoire and stage schools, including BOA and Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London. In addition several of my pupils have achieved success in a variety of Vocal Competitions. More recently, I have been organising Music Showcases from my home for pupils to perform to their relatives or parents in a relaxed and informal setting, whilst providing performance experience. In addition, in January 2019 one of my singing pupils came runner-up in the National Open Mic Championships at the O2 in the Under Sixteen category.
I offer lessons in a relaxed, friendly and homely environment. If preferred, I can also offer lessons online via Skype or other platforms. I believe that music should be a pleasureable experience and therefore I strive to ensure that the tuition provided is both enjoyable and personalised to each individual's requirements, building confidence in my pupil's abilities. When offering Vocal Tuition, I always begin each lesson with a good vocal warm up, working on breathing technique to develop and improve tonal quality. I aim for my piano lessons to be fun and engaging, teaching good keyboard skills alongside musical note recognition. I have a vast library of sheet music, enabling me to coach pupils for a variety of styles and genres of music.
