This is how 3 referees rated Fiona:
I took a degree in Drama & English at Queen Mary, University of London. I then trained as an actress and singer at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art for two years full-time. At drama school I trained in singing under the direction of Darrel Mouton, a singing tutor at the Royal College of Music.
I have worked professionally as an actress, singer, drama and singing teacher, vocal coach and director for the last ten years. After graduating from Drama School, I toured for a number of years as a professional actress in a wide variety of productions, combining this with working as a presenter and voice-over artist. I am currently involved with a Bristol based theatre company as an actress. I sing with a Jazz Quartet at functions, private parties and weddings. I absolutely love my work and the variety that comes from it!
I teach Classical Singing, Jazz Singing, Musical Theatre Singing & Technique, Speech & Drama (I put students forward for the graded Speech & Drama and Musical Theatre exams, medals and diplomas for the LAMDA Examination Board, the Trinity & Guildhall Examination Board, the Victoria College board and the RADA board), Public Speaking for Confidence, Drama, Acting, Audition Technique and I also tutor students in Drama for SATS, GCSE & A Levels & up to degree level. I coach students for Drama School entrance (for both acting and singing audition preparation), entrance for the National Youth Theatre and I also coach professional actors and singers for help with theatre and film/television auditions.
I teach from the tiny tots to the grown ups!
I teach singing to Grade 8, and I teach Speech & Drama (LAMDA boards and Trinity and Guildhall boards) from Grade 1 to Diploma Level.
I also teach Drama from primary to degree level. This includes tutoring students for SATS, GCSE's and 'A' Levels and Degree Level.
I currently teach singing, drama and acting privately from home. Up until July of this year I was Head of Drama at a prestigious girls' school in Bristol. From September I will be joining a lovely school in Cheltenham privately coaching Speech & Drama and combining this with privately teaching from home. My students are diverse and very different, professional actors, professional musicians, aspiring actors, musicians and singers, children, young people and older people! Some choose to take singing and acting exams, some don't and just want to build their experience and confidence. The choices and options are endless, but what I can say is my students walk out the door differently to when they first arrived!
I am very easy to work with, believe in having great fun in lessons, and help students achieve their true potential. I work my students hard but it is thoroughly worth it in the end and my students are always pleased with their results!
A testimonial from one of my singing students:
"Fiona's supportive teaching and expertise quickly helped me find confidence and focus in my voice. Fiona was happy to work with a range of material and sensitive to my 'beginner' status - her teaching was a very important foundation for me"(Subject Leader - School of Music and Performing Arts, Bath Spa University)
