Personal Description:

Hello! My name is Valentini , I am a musician, singer and vocal tutor with a BMus (Hons Distinction) in Music Performance & Production from London Centre of Contemporary Music (LCCM). I have years of experience as a performer and educator. I also hold a BA in Education (Hons Distinction), I am a holder of QTS and I am DBS (CRB) checked.

I offer both one to one sessions and group workshops.

Vocal coaching sessions are tailored to suit the individual's goals and abilities. I am an enthusiastic, outgoing and creative teacher and very passionate about teaching students of all ages and abilities - whether it be introducing you to the joy of music for the first time, or helping to develop your existing skills to the next level.

In a friendly and relaxed environment, my lessons combine the enjoyment of singing with technical pursuits and are an even mix of technique, repertoire, musicality and performance.

Lessons can be enriched further with piano lessons for beginners, for the students to be able to accompany themselves when singing.

Lessons can take In my home studio in Tooting Bec, or to the students home (travel charge might apply, please contact me for more details).
