Personal Description:

Rachael graduated with a first class performance degree at Edinburgh Napier University and continued her postgraduate studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She recently gave a performance of Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater as a soloist and chorus member at the 2021 Edinburgh Fringe Festival conducted by Neil Metcalfe. Recent notable engagements include performing Dido in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas with Coro 19, the Alto solo in Haydn’s Nelson Mass and Dvorak’s Mass in D Major, and performing Mary in Respighi’s Laud to the Nativity with the Chapter House Singers, and singing in the chorus for the Guildhall Opera Department Autumn Production Così fan tutte conducted by Dominic Wheeler and directed by Oliver Platt. Summer 2016, she performed her solo debut concert ‘A Transatlantic Spectacle’ with pianist Jamie Lang in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Rachael has participated in masterclasses with pianist and broadcaster, Iain Burnside, British tenor Alan Oke, and pianist and vocal coach Michael McMahon. Rachael has performed in numerous choral and solo works both in Scotland and America, having spent a year of her degree at Central Washington University, WA. With Dundee Repertory Theatre, she has taken a number of small roles, particularly in Agatha Christie’s ‘Witness for the Prosecution’ directed by Kenny Miller and Caryl Churchill’s ‘Love and Information’ directed by Gemma Nicol. Alongside performing, Rachael taught as the graduate vocal teacher at the Junior Napier Music School from 2015-2018 and during 2018/2019 taught at several schools across London including Merton Music Foundation. Rachael’s studies were generously supported by The Cross Trust, The Split Infinitive and The Santander Universities Mobility Scholarship. She continues her studies with Soprano Irene Drummond.

Tutoring Experience:

As well as teaching privately I have taught at various schools over the last few years. From 2015-2018, I taught as the graduate vocal teacher at the Junior Napier Music School. During 2018-2019, I taught at several schools in London including the Saturday Morning Music School - Concert Canary and at the Merton Music Foundation. Since March 2020, I moved all of my teaching online.

I have a DipABRSM in Vocal Teaching, and am PVG Certified.

Tutoring Approach:

I would consider myself to be an enthusiastic teacher. My aim is to help my students develop a healthy vocal technique in which they can use for any style of singing. So whether you're preparing for an exam, looking to improve your vocal technique or just keen to learn how to sing for a hobby I am more than happy to help!
