Personal Description:

Hello there!

I am a classical singer by trade and have sung with opera companies across Europe. I also do regular concert work and have featured on BBC Proms in the Park, BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio Wales, Radio France and Radio Nacionale de Espagna.

I relocated to Helensburgh last summer where I re-established my teaching practice alongside conducting two local choirs.

I am a very friendly and approachable person and am often described as a natural teacher.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching privately for about fifteen years and seen pupils from their first lessons through onto music courses at university. Some vocal pupils are now professional singers, others sing purely for fun. I taught at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama Junior Conservatoire for several years where I ran vocal workshops, conducted choirs, adjudicated exams and gave individual lessons. I have also run outreach projects and voice and character workshops for Garsington Opera, the BBC National Chorus of Wales, Monmouth and Bristol Choral Societies and the Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury.

I have taught pupils from 4 to retired and have experience teaching young people with educational and emotional disabilities.

Tutoring Approach:

Singing: I teach classical, musical theatre and pop styles with emphasis on vocal technique and health as well as enjoyment.
Violin: I teach classical and folk but am happy to teach violin in any genre!
Musicianship: an invaluable precursor to and complement to learning an instrument.
Theory: I teach theory and I get pupils through their written exams.

I believe teachers should instil a life-long love of music and enable pupils to think for themselves so there is an element of music theory and music reading in lessons. I provide exam preparation- usually ABRSM, Trinity Guildhall, Trinity Rock and Pop and LCM Musical Theatre syllabuses- excellent for boosting those UCAS points, and teach theory in all lessons.

Oh, and I love giving out stickers almost as much as my pupils love earning them.

As part of my GET KIDS PLAYING promotion, I am currently offering lessons to primary school-aged children at £12/30mins. Lessons available in violin, singing and musicianship.

Come and have a go!
