Tutoring Experience:

Since 2015, I have taught privately, in 1:1, group and choir settings and in a number of schools across London and Edinburgh including the Junior Napier Music School, Merton Music Foundation, Concert Canary Saturday Morning School and Stagecoach Islington. I have maintained a 100% pass rate on all of my student's vocal exams and have successfully prepared students for auditions who have gone on to study at college and undergraduate courses.

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

Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) enhanced background check applied as of present day.

Tutoring Approach:

Typically in a lesson we will do a physical warm up with stretching; checking posture, identifying areas of body tension, breathing exercises, vocal exercises and gradually apply that to suitable repertoire. The first lesson will be a general assessment for me to understand what the voice needs and how I can tailor my teaching to suit the student. My main focus is to help my students build a firm foundation in their vocal technique, help nurture and develop their understanding of their instrument and how to use it in a healthy way while having fun along the way!
