My approach varies in each Instrument.
Vocally, I concentrate on vocal technique, breathing, projection, clarity of vowels/cons and musicianship. It's important for the voice to be looked after at an early age so it can develop without injuries/bad technique. All songs will be chosen by the students ability/range.
I have experience (and successes) and can prepare students for (vocal) auditions to:-
Performing Art/Musical theatre courses such as Mount view, Laines, Arts Ed and GSA
Acting Courses such as RADA, LAMDA, Arts Ed, East 15, Mount View, Guildhall and Central.
Music Pop/Classical such as ICMP, BIMM, Guildhall, Trinity Laban, RCM, RAM and RNCM (Includes Composition portfolios)
I can teach ABRSM/Trinity Guildhall exams (up to Grade 8) as well as Rock schools and ICMA.
Piano, I can teach upto ABRSM/Trinity Grade 8 including a vast knowledge of piano repertiore.
