Though classically trained Richard's repertoire is very eclectic including Classical, Musical Theatre, Folk, Rat Pack/Swing Jazz and Popular songs. You never know what to expect.
Have taught privately for three years now - from age 10 to 80.
The basics of all singing are breathing, scales and arpeggios and knowing your vocal range and how to use head voice and chest voice etc… once a pupil has mastered they are then encouraged to find their own style.
