My Mission

Passionate Teacher

I am a passionate musician who truly loves all things music. I believe I am an enthusiastic and fun teacher who's main goal it is to help my students grow and develop their singing voice. Music has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember and is something I still love just as much to this day. Over the years of training and perfecting my own abilities, I am now very excited to be able to share the skills and knowledge I have learnt with my students.

Based on my many years of real world experience performing as a musician, singer and an actor I feel confident in my ability to teach and work with students from all walks of life. No matter whether you have never sang before, or if you have been singing for years and just want to get to that next step, the lessons I provide are catered and suitable for any student. I take pride in offering thorough and detailed lessons to help you protect and improve your singing voice as we go.

My Lessons

Lessons Suitable for all Styles and Genres

Over the years I have studied and developed vocal techniques which cover a huge range of styles and genres. I really am passionate about all things music and I feel happy singing and performing in just about any style you can think of. This ranges from Pop, Indie/Rock, Jazz etc all the way through to musical theatre performances. The techniques and styles used in musical theatre vary quite a lot from standard pop singing techniques.

As I've had such a wide variation of experience as a singer, both in an indie/rock group and as a musical theatre performer I like to offer lessons which cover a wide array of musical topics. This is with the aim of not only helping you improve as a technical singer, but I like to try and offer insight in to music theory and other aspects to help you grow as an all round musician too. These skills can be invaluable when it comes to performing in real world situations.

Prices:


£20 per 1/2 hour
£35 per hour

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

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

The lessons I provide are tailored and suitable for any student of any age. I have a vast amount of previous experience working with students of all ages and ability levels.

My Experience as a Teacher

For a long time music has been a real passion of mine and is something I've been trying to make a career out of ever since I was a young child. I have performed as the lead vocalist in an Indie/Rock band called 'Dupe'. We were fortunate enough to have received a record deal which led me to many performances and tours in and around the UK. Performing music is one of my favorite things to do and I hope to provide you with the tools and skills you would need to be able to do this too!

I am flexible teacher who is more than happy for the lessons to go in whichever direction the student wants to take them. I appreciate we all want and love different things about music and we are also all at different playing ability levels. As such I am happy to tailor the content of our lessons to help you improve on your specific weak areas and to get you playing your favorite songs that you have always wanted to learn. I also provide lessons that are suitable for students who want to take their formal exams too.

Following the success of my Indie/Rock band I then went on to study and train in musical theatre at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. I have been fortunate enough to sing and perform on a number of touring west end productions including Blood Brothers, The Buddy Holly Story and Rock Legends. Also, I have performed and toured with The Wellington Symphonia, Cape Town Philharmonic and The Hawaii Symphony Orchestra so I have a ton of varied real world experience as a singer.

More About My Lessons

I am currently in the process of composing and releasing my own music as a solo artist and I am more than happy to offer songwriting tips and tricks in my lessons too, if this is something that interests you. I have received a Distinction on my MA in Voice Studies: Teaching and Coaching at Royal Central and I have now been teaching singing professionally for around the last 10 years.

I've been lucky enough to have performed on some amazing shows and tours over the years and these are some of my fondest memories to date. I specialise in teaching contemporary music genres such as Pop, Jazz, Rock and Blues as well as musical theatre too. Whatever singing style you're looking for together we can develop all the tools and techniques you'll need to truly hone in your singing voice.

In my lessons I like to call upon my years of experience and try to offer a nice wide range of content for my students. Not only do I want to help you improve your voice as a technical singer, but I always want to help you protect your voice so you can sing for many years to come, and also boost your performance confidence and overall understanding of music. I'll always try and keep our lessons as relaxed but as engaging as possible, so you feel excited to practice the material in between our lessons.

Music Stores

Music Shops in Guildford

Guildford is a fairly good place to be as a musician looking to find equipment. Andertons is the towns flagship music store, but the area is well-served by music shops in nearby towns and in London as well:

Andertons, are found at 58-59 Woodbridge Road, GU1 4RF, and their store is Guildford's heart and soul when it comes to music. They have been in business for almost 70 years and provide all sorts of instruments and accessories. Vocalists will be pleased to know they have an abundance of recording microphones, interfaces and software to pick from.

ABC Music, is found in the nearby Surrey town of Esher, and sell a number of P.A systems including microphones and digital recorders. They are a short drive from Guildford on the A3 and are located at 85 High Street, Esher, KT10 9QA.

Brittens Music, is a short drive north of Guildford and are found just outside the M25 in New Haw at 13 The Broadway KT15 3EU. They stock amps and recording equipment as well as doing a rent-before-you-buy offering. Not all of their stock is listed on their website so you may want to ring up or pay them a visit to see what they have for sale.
