About

About

I am a singer and singing teacher living in Cardiff. I trained on the Opera Course at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Previously I trained at the Royal Northern College of Music and the Royal College of Music in London.

During my time in Manchester and London, I was a singing teacher at a number of high schools teaching pop, musical theatre and classical. I prepared a lot of my students for ABRSM exams where I have had many successes and also prepared children for the performance part of their GCSE music exams.

Alongside teaching children, I have taught many adults and enjoy working with all ages. I believe people can come to singing at any age and I would encourage anybody to start taking singing lessons whether it’s to consider as a career or just to have fun.

  • Vocal technique

  • Breathing

  • Audition preparation
  • Singing in a foreign language
  • Belting

Things to Check Before Choosing

  • Qualifications: Verify the teacher’s qualifications and experience. Check if they have relevant music degrees, certifications, or professional experience in music education.
  • Professionalism: Consider whether a teacher holds a recent safeguarding certificate, public/general liability insurance and is a member of a professional music organizations or associations. These are important for ensuring a safe and professional learning environment.
  • Reliability: Look for reviews or testimonials from current or past students. Consistent positive feedback can indicate a reliable teacher.
  • Teaching Style: Consider if their teaching style aligns with your learning preferences. Some teachers offer trial lessons which can be a good opportunity to assess compatibility.
  • Specialisations: Check if the teacher specializes in the instrument or musical genre you are interested in. Specialised teachers can offer more in-depth knowledge and techniques.
  • Location and Availability: Ensure the teacher’s location and schedule fit your needs. Consider the convenience of travel and the flexibility of lesson timings.
