Private Singing Lessons for Beginners

Evening and weekend classes available

What do these singers have in common? Whether Adele's songs about heartbreak, Frank Ocean's raw yet poetic lyrics, Katie Melua's sweet melodies or Jeff Buckley's quiet intensity is to your taste or not, there is no denying that they are all unique singers. Contemporary vocal training for beginners is all about finding those special qualities in your voice so to help you develop into a unique vocalist with plenty of personality.                                                                                                      

Learning how to sing is exiting but coming for a first lesson can be a little nerve-racking. If you are new to singing you need a teacher who will make you feel comfortable from the first lesson. My laid back, fun and friendly approach is always appreciated by first timers and makes each lesson enjoyable as well as productive.

All lessons are one to one

The course includes a thorough study of the basics of singing such as breathing, intonation and voice control. The course also gives students a proper understanding of improvisation, interpretation and expression, which is essential in order to become a good vocalist and to feel confident when it comes to performing.

Lessons for beginners are fun and all inclusive. They take place at the lovely Music Studios on Marylebone Lane with a grand piano and wonderful atmosphere dedicated to learning music.

I am passionate vocal coach and vocalist.

With over a decade of experience in music ranging from pop, jazz, soul, r&b and musical theatre I have a detailed insight into and understanding of contemporary vocals.

Having studied both classical and modern vocals I know how important it is to find a teacher who is honest about the difference between the two methods and who understands exactly what is required of the individual who wants to explore contemporary music and singing in terms of sound and technique.

I have been running leading contemporary vocal courses for over a decade for Londoners and visiting students from aboard. I am passionate about vocal training for the adult amateur to the aspiring professional.

I am teaching people from all walks of life, from complete beginners to professional and established singers. The philosophy of the lessons however is the same for everyone; to develop unique singers who are confident in their style of singing and knows how to use their voice to its full potential. I play the piano and always accompany my students in lessons. 

I teach from the lovely Music Studios on Marylebone Lane and online via Zoom or Skype.
