My Lessons

All Abilities Welcome

I welcome students of all abilities who wish to build their skills technically with exercises, breath control, vocal styling, music theory and improvising. I encourage students to learn standard repertoire and key chord sequences in the jazz idiom.

Attention is paid to gaining a clear rhythmic approach and feel of jazz music. Finding out how we can sing from the best place within ourselves and exploring ideas that may be out of our comfort zone initially. Work is done on overcoming stage fright and strategies for releasing performance tension.


£55 per hour

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

I welcome both beginners and advanced students to take my lessons. I will always make a lesson plan that suits your needs as a learner.

My Experience as a Teacher

My story as a singer and teacher began when I was in my teens. A love of music and especially jazz, led me through my clarinet playing into vocalising the melodies I was playing.

I studied in New York with Barry Harris and Judy Niemack which gave me an excellent grounding in jazz. I started teaching in London in 1999 and I have taught every level from complete beginners to advanced singers. Now I specialise in adult learning. I teach workshops and weekly classes in jazz singing.

My forte is being able to help the student develop their style and work on appropriate repertoire. Having studied the Mindful Based Stress Reduction teacher training at Bangor University I also teach mindfulness based singing courses at the City Lit in London, and this approach has helped me gain a new perspective on overcoming learning obstacles that some students have.

More About My Lessons

Having also studied vocal technique with Mark Meylan, I can help all students with keeping the voice healthy (basic vocal hygiene)and improving their technique.

For intermediate and advanced students I am able to offer advice and guidance in the music business, help them develop their repertoire, give them ideas on how to make a song their own, how to create personal arrangements and helping students prepare for professional performances (gigs) and recordings, as well as set list advice. I also cover microphone technique.

For beginners I offer to teach them a complete practice regime which will strengthen the voice, creating vocal stamina and keep their vocal folds healthy. The lessons also cover basic harmony and ear training to help with exploring improvising and embellishment of melodies. We work on phrasing, breathing and interpretation.
