Online Singing Teacher
Email: [email protected]
I have taught singing for over 30 years in my local area of Aberdare, South Wales. Now that I am teaching online, I can take on students from anywhere in the UK. All lessons take place virtually using Zoom or FaceTime, and are suitable for students from age 8 years and up.
I studied at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Cardiff, and the Royal College of Music, London. I was Principal Soprano with the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company, appearing in recordings, broadcasts, television, and film productions. I have also travelled internationally, performing in concerts around the world. My London performances include concerts at The Royal Albert Hall, Barbican Centre, The Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, The Adelphi Theatre, Connaught Rooms, and Savoy Theatre.
My instructional methods are developed from a career as a professional singer and musical studies. I teach breathing, technique, performance skills, interpretation, and exercises that are specifically designed for the effective development of the voice. The sessions are given on a one-to-one basis, and are tailored to the student’s individual needs. I offer lessons in Classical, Musical Theatre, Gilbert and Sullivan, and Modern/Popular music. I teach all levels, and welcome students from beginner to advanced/Diploma level. Whatever your goal, I can help you or your child learn how to sing in a fun and structured way, with online singing lessons that really move and motivate students, helping you to gain skills and build confidence as a performer.
Classical Singing Lessons: My training as a Classical singer using the Italian Bel Canto Style enables me to pass on the knowledge I have acquired to my students. I have spent many years as a professional singer, performing Oratorio, Lieder recitals, Opera, and Concerts. I am also a recording artist, so not only am I able to teach students the technical side, but also the performing aspect. Musical Theatre Lessons: To have a strong technique means that a singer is able to withstand the strain of singing a role for 8 performances a week – on top of touring! I have done this and know how to prepare students for a career in Musical Theatre using a trusted and tried vocal technique. It is so important to sing correctly to avoid strain and damage to the delicate vocal cords. Popular Music Lessons Even when singing pop songs, you can learn to sing them really well and in a professional way. Learn how to interpret the songs and how to perform them, while having a strong basic technique.

“I had a problem of singing with a hard sound so I couldn’t sing any high notes. I was also slurring between words a lot – I thought this was good, but now that I’m learning to sing properly, everything feels much easier and my range is improving without hurting my throat.”
“I was given a leading role in a local amateur company production which I was very excited about. I needed help with how to use my voice and sing in tune. I thought I was performing the song well but when Pam took it apart, I realised the difference. She told me how to understand the song and the character, how not to sing it all in an uncontrolled sound, how to move, and how to use my arms. I now feel like a professional!”
“I’ve had lessons with Pam for 4 years and she has helped me very much. I was really nervous about singing and not confident, but by learning how to breathe and work on technique, I can now sing songs all the way through. I’ve surprised myself, especially singing higher notes that feel really easy and not tight and squeezed in my throat. She’s a brilliant teacher and so knowledgeable.”
“I have always wanted to sing. I have taken acting roles but wanted to be able to put myself forward for leading parts in the musical society I belong to. In a short space of time, I’ve achieved that, singing songs from musical theatre that I thought would be impossible. My voice is a lot more powerful, I can sing high notes, I can sing in tune which I had problems with, and my performance skills have given me a new-found confidence. I couldn’t have done any of this without having lessons with Pam.”
