Information About Iria - City of Westminster tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Iria:
I am a young professional singer who trained at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and have recently worked with Wexford Festival Opera and Grange Park Opera. I have a great teaching experience acquired both in Portugal and the UK.
I am an experienced teacher and have worked in several music schools while in Portugal. Since arriving in London 8 years ago, I have set up my own private teaching studio. Currently I teach singing, piano and performance skills at First Musical Academy in London, where I also hold the position of Head Administrator.
In my lessons you can expect high quality tuition in a relaxed environment. I can help you to sing freely and expressively, while having fun! I can assure you that the process of discovering/enhancing your full voice and potential will also increase your self-esteem and confidence!
I am also a proficient pianist and can teach piano from beginner to intermediate level.
These are the subjects that I am currently teaching:
Preparation for graded music qualifications (ABRSM, Trinity Guildhall)
I look forward to working with you!
Here's some testimonials from my students:
'I have been delighted with Iria’s teaching. As a newcomer to singing lessons, I was a initially little nervous, but was soon put at ease: the lessons have been relaxed, highly informative and very professional. Iria is constantly encouraging, and is patient and helpful in explaining points of technique; and importantly the lessons are always fun. I would recommend her wholeheartedly.'
Tom G. (adult singing student)
'I took piano lessons with Iria not having played a note since I was a teenager. She showed great patience and tact in guiding me through the initial stages again. Within the space of a few weeks thanks to her encouragement and guidance I was playing Grade 2 pieces. I thoroughly recommend her for beginners and intermediate learners. She has great instinct for getting the best out of you.'
Max H. (adult piano student)
'I would not hesitate to recommend Iria as a brilliant music teacher for your children.
My daughter just started to learn the first key notes of piano with Iria and I can see her great enthusiasm, patience and dedication.
Iria is very trustworthy, reliable and a great music teacher. I can’t wait to seeing my daughter starting playing the piano properly within a couple months.'
