Andrea

Bedford Tutor

I'm a full-time professional singer and vocal coach with more than 25 years professional performance experience in the genres of jazz, blues, soul, funk, pop and R&B. I teach from my home studio in Bedford.

Tutoring Experience

I love working with a wide range of ages (generally from age 7+) and have a particular interest in helping adult beginners to explore their singing abilities.

Tutoring Approach

I offer a nurturing, fun and positive environment for beginners - with an emphasis on the individual needs of each student. Students can sing purely for enjoyment and building confidence or work towards singing examinations, auditions, competitions or open mic performances. While key aspects of musical theory are covered in the sessions it isn't essential to have any previous theoretical knowledge and much of the learning can be by ear. I accompany students on keyboard for vocal warm-ups and exercises but tend to use backing tracks for the learning/performance of songs so I can give my full attention and encouragement to my students.
