About Me

About

I am a versatile and experienced singer who has trained at the world-class Royal Conservatoire – Royal Northern College of Music during a four-year Popular Music bachelors degree, where I graded with a 1st.

I offer one on one singing lessons in Manchester for both female and male singers, professionals and beginners 12 years of age and older. I help people build their technique, repertoire, prepare for their singing auditions, live performances and give guidance in stagecraft. I also work with students who want to sing just for fun or learn a few songs for a special occasion and do it as a hobby for their own enjoyment.

I have a wide range of experience in performance, singing, stagecraft, artistic vision and image building as well as public presentation skills. I had amazing opportunities to work with high-class worldwide known vocalists and vocal coaches like Sheila Raye Charles, Wayne Ellington, Nicky Allan, Soyeon Kim and Kim Chandler. I always try and use their advice experience when teaching my students, adapt and alter it to their individual needs. I am prepared to teach everybody who wants to become a professional, deepen their knowledge or sing and just have a great time! I am interested in a variety of music genres from Jazz, Blues, Soul to Pop, R&B and Electronic music, but I always let my students choose what they want to perform.

I am eager to learn myself, hence I always introduce new techniques to my students and experiment with new exercises and ways of singing practising. I work on breathing, posture, efficient warm-ups, mix-voice, blending ranges, vocal stamina, discovering one’s unique voice abilities and qualities. I love using Sadolin singing techniques. After the student and I make sure there is a good technical base, I introduce the work with vocal colour, different styles of singing, personality in voice, delivery, performance, stage character and fine details of stagecraft.

I am flexible and always try to make people feel free and relaxed when working with me, be it doing exercises or presenting their work and progress. Having said that, I am always honest and never afraid of giving constructive criticism and feedback as I feel it is immensely important for one’s professional growth.

As every individual has different needs and capabilities, I easily adjust and choose the best way to approach and interact with each and one of them. If they have a preferred way of learning, I am always open for suggestions and changes. Also, I like to get to know the person and discuss their goals, expectations, targets.

I strongly believe that working hard is a key to success, so I will make sure we do that together and achieve great results!

Auguste is a singer to be experienced. I have never worked with someone who is just so connected with what she does, you can play her anything, I mean any chord any melody and she makes It into something you just don’t want to stop listening.

Talented, charismatic, ambitious and very creative. Auguste is constantly experimenting and has a need to grow which is the most important quality for a creative person. She is a brilliant singer that inspires every person she works with.
