Singing Teacher in Milton Keynes
Email: [email protected]
Hi, my name is Gwen and I am a professional singer, songwriter and vocal coach based in Milton Keynes. Having graduated with a first-class degree in Music (with Italian) from the University of Birmingham, I have since gone on to perform widely in a variety of spheres, from choral and operatic to rock and jazz.
Under the artist name Gwen and the Good Thing, I have performed my own music on the BBC Introducing stages at Glastonbury, Wilkestock, Big Feastival and Standon Calling Festival, sung live on BBC Three Counties Radio, and played at iconic London venues such as the O2 Academy Islington, the Borderline Soho and Camden Assembly. In addition, I have a wide repertoire of cover material and perform regularly as a function musician. Alongside my vocal studies, as part of my degree, I studied paper and studio composition under Vic Hoyland and Jonty Harrison, and now predominantly write pop music for myself and other artists. My recent releases have garnered 80,000+ streams on Spotify.
I currently tutor vocal students of all ages across a wide range of genres, focusing on technique as well as performance in a friendly and relaxed environment. I can also assist you with your own songwriting and music theory studies, if you wish, and always like to include a little bit of wider musical context and information in my singing lessons.
After teaching throughout lockdown, I am extremely experienced at teaching via Zoom, with the full technical set-up to provide lessons online.
