Lessons Tailored To You
I have been singing for over 20 years now, having been classically trained, but also covering a variety of styles. This has allowed my technical ability to grow to a highly professional level, although I am always looking to improve. I am extremely patient and open-minded, friendly and passionate about what I do. I am also eager to get results from anyone I work with, and that can relate to technique, or simply just building a pupil’s confidence.

Mastering Breath Control
Mastering breath control is fundamental to unlocking the full potential of your vocal performance. As an experienced singer, one's ability to manage breath effectively dictates the quality of sound produced. The freedom that comes with excellent breath control allows for more expressive and dynamic singing. You can master this crucial aspect with the help of:
diaphragmatic breathing: learn to use your diaphragm for deep breathing, which provides a solid foundation for sustained singing
breath management: focus on controlling the outflow of air to maintain a steady, supported sound throughout your great performance
phrasing and dynamics: work on using breath to shape phrases and convey emotional depth, adding a layer of artistry to your singing
stamina building: engage in exercises designed to increase lung capacity and endurance, so you can perform longer pieces with ease.
Expanding Your Vocal Range
As part of my singing lessons in Exeter, I offer expert guidance in expanding your vocal range, a key component for versatility and expression in singing. A professional vocalist understands the importance of pushing boundaries while maintaining a focus on the health of their own voice. Each lesson is tailored to support singers in safely exploring and expanding their range, allowing them to perform a variety of styles with ease and confidence.
Through a series of targeted exercises, you will gradually increase your ability to reach higher and lower notes, effectively broadening your vocal spectrum. Alongside practice between singing lessons you will hear and feel your vocal ability grow in strength. Whether you aim to dazzle with soaring highs or captivate with resonant lows, expanding your range can significantly enhance your musical expression.
Overcoming Performance Anxiety
The journey to vocal development also encompasses strategies for overcoming performance anxiety to ensure singers deliver their best on stage. It is about unlocking a sense of freedom where you can sing with joy and confidence, regardless of ages or levels of experience. Here are some key strategies to conquer stage fright:
understanding the root cause: by identifying what triggers your anxiety and tailor approaches that specifically address your concerns
practicing mindfulness techniques: learn to centre yourself with breathing exercises and visualisation methods that calm the mind and allow you to focus on the joy of singing
use open mic nights: Exeter has many opportunities to perform in many different styles and settings, from open mic nights to theatre performances, which can desensitise the nervousness associated with being on stage through repeated experience
positive reinforcement: embrace the idea that every performance is a chance to learn new skills
