Singing Teacher in Histon & Impington, Cambridge
Email: [email protected]
Fun and friendly singing tutor based in Impington, Cambridge. I am delighted to teach students of all ages and abilities, one-to-one or in small groups, and always tailor my lessons to suit the needs and interests of my students. I can help students to discover their voices for the first time, build their confidence, prepare for auditions and performances and progress through exams. I can also teach beginner musicians how to read music.
I am a classically trained soprano, and have recently completed my studies at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s Alexander Gibson Opera School. I enjoy a busy career as a performer, and have recently appeared with Northern Opera Group, Pop-Up Opera, Edvard Gried Kor and Bergen National Opera.
An experienced tutor, I enjoy working with aspiring singers of all ages and abilities in order to help people sing the music they love in the healthiest way possible. I am happy to work on a wide range of repertoire, including opera and classical pieces, musical theatre repertoire, pop and film music, jazz standards and anything in between. I can help prepare pupils for concerts and exams, and teach the building blocks of music to anyone wanting to learn how to read music and get a grasp of basic music theory.
I have taught privately for over six years, and have also held posts in various schools as a peripatetic singing teacher. My pupils all sing for pleasure, but I have also helped many of them to attain qualifications at a high level.
I work with my students in order to foster a strong and healthy vocal technique, excellent musicianship and strong performance ability. All three areas are vital for the development of good singing, no matter the level of performance to which you are aspiring!
I begin each lesson with a series of physical and vocal warm-ups and technical exercises. Attention is paid to posture, breath support and healthy, free production of sound. As every voice is unique, the exercises are always tailored to each student and are easy to practice at home between lessons.
I can teach novice musicians how to read musical notation and understand basic music theory and can help students to develop their aural skills also. I also ensure that when tackling repertoire, my students develop a high standard of rhythmic and melodic accuracy and that they understand the way in which their song is structured.
The really fun part! I work with my students to foster their ability to interpret a song and make it their own. We work together to hone their artistry and musicality, exploring different approaches to storytelling as well as working on creating a wide range of expressive vocal colours with which to paint the words they sing. I can also help students to overcome stage fright and nervousness, and built confidence and stage presence.
