Hello, I am a music graduate (class of 2014) who has been teaching for eight years. Teaching and singing are my absolute favourite things to do, helping someone become more confident in their voice and watching them grow is incredibly fulfilling for me. Since the lockdowns have been lifted I am thrilled to be back on stage performing and singing in musicals, choir, and at local gigs.
Aside from music tuition I adore animals and help foster and rehome abandoned pets. Cooking, swimming, hiking and writing are also interests of mine, as well as learning languages and going to the theatre.
My time at university was spent not only studying, but teaching and running the largest choir on campus as well as giving private singing lessons. In my second year I co-directed the music side of the musical theatre society's production, which was both brilliant and extremely busy. This involved teaching large groups, small groups and individuals on a regular basis.
I also spent that time getting my degree - the focus of this was on music education, contemporary classical and extended voice techniques, however I originally trained as a classical and musical theatre performer, gaining a grade 8 distinction in each style in 2011 and an LCM Diploma in musical theatre performance in 2017.
I took the plunge in October 2017 and started teaching full-time - the best decision I've ever made! - and since then I took 11 months travelling, worked full time for a couple of charities during a certain global pandemic, and I am finally ready to return to the cliche: if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life!
I am a very flexible teacher, willing to let the student guide the voice work. Due to my wide range of experience, I am happy to cover a wide variety of skills and topics and have taught students with many different approaches to singing. I am a lifelong learner and I regularly go to three specialist teachers for my own lessons - keeping my voice in top shape and making sure the knowledge I pass on to my own students is as relevant and high quality as possible.
Should you wish to be taken through exam gradings and pursue a more traditional route to vocal training, we can map this out together. Alternatively, if you are preparing for an event or performance and would like a refresher (or a crash course!) that is no problem at all. For students who are looking for casual voice training, perhaps those who work in a vocally-intensive environment or who want to improve their car-radio singing, we can explore the world of effective vocal production together.
Most importantly, singing is fun and good for the soul! Hitting the right note is important, but enjoying making the sound - any sound, in fact - is what makes it so special. This is the number one ethic that I teach and sing by.
I am happy to teach all levels of student in-person at my studios in Brentwood or Harold Hill. If you have had a few lessons with me or have had some lessons in the past I am happy to facilitate online training too. I hope to hear from you!

I really recommend Rebecca because she doesn't waste time and gets a lot done in an hour. Hopefully she'll be able to have more students that will say the same.
She is such a kind and patient teacher as well as so talented.
It is great seeing my daughter improve week by week.
Thank you Rebecca
