I teach all vocal genres including classical, musical theatre, jazz and pop to all ages and abilities. I also teach the ABRSM music theory syllabus.
I am passionate about unlocking each student’s unique vocal potential. I believe in building a strong technical foundation which will enable my students to sing in many different styles and become confident, versatile musicians. As a teacher, I think it is important to nurture young voices and to encourage individual musicality, instilling a passion for music to last a lifetime.
I discovered my love for teaching during my undergraduate music degree at the University of Southampton when I was musical director of their pop and gospel choir, Jazzmanix 2012-13.
After graduating in 2013 I moved to Birmingham to further my performing and teaching career by undertaking a Master’s degree in Performance and Pedagogy at Birmingham Conservatoire. During this time, I began teaching at Birmingham Music School where I trained as a Yamaha Vocal Instructor. Since completing my Master's, I was able to continue building my teaching career with Beatbox Studio in Rugby as well as a number of schools in the West Midlands.
I am now based in North Somerset and am the visiting vocal tutor at Churchill Academy and Ashbrooke House School. I am also one of the vocal tutors at Music Makers Academy, specialising in classical and musical theatre tuition.
Other recent teaching posts include:
- Musical Director for ASH Stage Productions' youth theatre production of 'Sweeney Todd' - March - June 2018
- Head Judge for the Rugby's Young Vocalist of he Year Competition - 17th March 2018
- Vocal Tutor at Harris C of E Academy - May 2016 - June 2018
My lessons are tailored to each individual whether you wish to learn purely for fun or are interested in working towards exams, preparing for auditions or aiming for a career in music. I am knowledgeable in all the major singing exam syllabuses and am very proud to currently have a 100% pass rate for my students.
I hold an enhanced DBS certificate and have up to date safeguarding and child protection training.
