Personal Description:

Hello, experienced and fresh singers!

If you are interested in fun vocal lessons that will help you grow, you are in the right place.

I am an active London-based jazz singer, running a seven-piece jazz, funk, fusion band, as well as participating in various jazz/pop bands and ensembles. I perform regularly at jazz clubs, such as Spice of Life, Jazz Cafe POSK, as well as London Jazz Festivals.

Having studied classical vocals at Lithuania's National Music Conservatoire for four years, I realised that jazz was not just a fling but a deep burning passion and soon to be my profession. In pursuit of this career, I came to London College of Music to study jazz vocals with the amazing Tina May, Iain MacKenzie, Pete Cook and Pete Churchill. I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Music with Honours First Class degree and have been awarded a First Class Licentiate of the London College of Music. I recently finished a master's MMus degree in Music Performance with distinction through a scholarship programme.

Tutoring Experience:

Whether you prefer jazz, classical, pop, rock, musical theatre, death metal, or other styles, I am happy to teach them all. All styles of music are beautiful and I would encourage you to experiment or try out your voice in different ones.

I am qualified to teach ages 5 - 99 through music grades 1 - 8 (ABRSM; Trinity; Rockschool), as well as Undergraduate and Postgraduate University level and beyond. I have experience teaching individually as well as in an ensemble and class of 30. We can arrange lessons at your location or my home studio (in West London), whichever you prefer.

Tutoring Approach:

Hello, experienced and fresh singers!

If you are interested in fun vocal lessons that will help you grow, you are in the right place.

If you have ever had a bad experience learning music before, stressful lessons, low self-esteem or somebody telling you cannot do it - let me help you find joy through singing again.

I believe in positive reinforcement techniques and making lessons fun, at whatever level. While vocals would be the main subject of lessons, we would also cover music theory.

We would focus on:
• Pitching - singing in tune
• Developing tone and range
• Different breathing techniques
• Expanding repertoire and different styles
• Lyrical interpretation
• Understanding harmony
• Basic instrumental (piano / guitar / bass) skills
• Personal development
• Self-analysis

You are the boss, and I will make sure the programme, pace, and style suit you, I will make it challenging, yet fun and rewarding.

My ultimate goal is for you be able to make your own musical decisions, improve with self-feedback and give you the tools to become your own teacher.

Looking forward to hearing from you, even if you just want to chat and discuss.

Kind regards
Willow

P.S. Quick piece of advice: Many music teachers teach out of necessity because they are not successful enough as musicians to make a living. Be careful when choosing a teacher and find one, who emits passion and love for the profession! Otherwise, you might have a negative experience with learning music, especially damaging for young children. I specialise in working with those who might have had their confidence harmed by such experiences.
