My Mission

Enjoy Learning

For me, there's only one way to move in the right direction when it comes to learning something and that's to enjoy what you learn. I really put in a lot of effort into making sure you learn in a way that you can love and enjoy. Yes, I will always make sure you have a solid grounding in theory and understanding but I believe that this can be done in an enjoyable way whilst making sure we combine understanding with songs that you like and the genres of music that you love.

I like to create a relaxed and friendly environment for my students and like to make sure that they all know that they can ask me anything. I will pride my self on being your guide to learning to sing or becoming a better vocalist. I can tailor lessons for students of all singing levels, If you're a beginner I will make sure we work at a pace that suits you and for more experienced singers I will make sure we fine tune your vocals and make sure we work on the aspects of singing that you feel need improvement.

My Lessons

Improve Your Confidence

I'm an experienced performer and singer and for my students who want to go down the same route, I really like to make sure we work on everything from understanding to building confidence and more. I've helped so many students achieve their goals in a past and I will always use my own personal experience to make recommendations for all of my students as well. My lesson plan will focus on all aspects of your singing and your general understanding of music.

For students who just want to learn for fun then this is also something I'm experienced in teaching. If you just want to learn to sing some of your favourite songs or even have an event you'd like to sing at, I will help nurture your voice to a point where you feel comfortable and confident enough to achieve your goals.

My Experience as a Teacher

I am a soprano from Greece who has been classically trained at the esteemed Royal Northern College of Music (Bachelor of Music with Honours) in the department of Vocal Studies & Opera. I have experience teaching singing to students (all ages) at various levels, from complete beginners to more advanced, and helped them elevate their vocal skills both technically and expressively. During my studies, I followed courses on Pedagogy/Tutoring Singing and Vocal Anatomy & Health, which gave me important guidance on how to teach singing successfully and with care

Since moving to the UK, I have performed in recitals, masterclasses, competitions and participated in Opera Productions, including taking on the lead role ‘Serpina’ in Pergolesi’s opera LA SERVA PADRONA, as well as ‘Zerlina’ in Mozart’s opera DON GIOVANNI for the RNCM Opera Scenes 2019-2020. Musical Theatre has been at the centre of my life since I was young and I attain an extensive background in this field, including performing in the Musical GODSPELL at the world-famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and portraying the lead character ‘Reno Sweeney’ in the Musical ANYTHING GOES.

Moreover, I often work with Pop musicians, rehearsing and recording with them, and I really enjoy exploring varying musical styles. In October 2020, I released my debut Pop single “Castaway”, a collaboration with emerging Artist/Producer Elia, a track which was described as cutting-edge, genre-blending, and full of innovative production and alluring vocals. I am fortunate to perform in a wide variety of live shows and concerts for events across the United Kingdom, including Classical, Crossover/Musical, and Pop/Function (live band) sets.

More About My Lessons

In my singing lessons, I aim to create an encouraging environment and safe space that allows experimentation of the voice in order to uncover the full potential of each pupil. My teaching method focuses on obtaining a robust vocal technique, with supported breathing and correct vocal placement. I teach my students vocal exercises that improve register blending, mixed-voice, vocal stamina, and vocal flexibility. These aim to release the voice from tension and discover each singers’ unique qualities, abilities, and character. Furthermore, understanding how to use text and phrasing in a manner that colours a melody with meaning and emotion is very important in enriching the interpretative skills and creativity of a singer. I am passionate about helping my students learn to perform with musicality, sincerity and confidence.

I am open to working on any of the student’s favourite songs! It is important to work on music that suits each pupil’s particular voice type and brings their vocal training to the next level. I am happy to cover any of the following genres: Opera/Classical, Musical Theatre, Jazz standards, and Pop. I have the appropriate experience to prepare students for ABRSM examinations as well as for Conservatoire and University auditions.

I have worked with superb, world-acclaimed Vocal Coaches/Vocalists throughout my singing journey and always aim to pass on their insight and advice to my own students! I also trained as an actor at ActUpNorth where I had the chance to work with professionals of the film/TV industry on in-depth acting methods; I believe that these skills of analysing a character offer important guidance concerning the process of attaching emotion to the performance of any song (a Pop song, Musical Theatre piece, or Opera aria) which helps to uncover the meaning behind lyrics, subtext, and thoughts that the song expresses.
