Each voice is different and each student’s goals will be as well, Viara will help you find your voice as a singer, enabling you to reach your full singing potential! You can find out more about what Viara can offer you below:

Vocal Lessons:

Your vocal lessons will focus on you gaining a better understanding of how your voice works. In addition to the vocal lessons, you’ll get a set of exercises designed for your voice specifically, that you can use as your practice routine, so you can fully benefit from your singing lessons with me. With regular practice, you’ll manage to

  • Smooth out breaks in your voice
  • Improve your intonation and phrasing
  • Ease out any strain you might feel when singing (those high notes!)
  • Feel more confident and enjoy singing
  • Get the best of your voice when auditioning, on stage or in the studio
  • Learn to sing with a backing track, with guitar/piano accompaniment and a cappella

Music Theory, Rock School Exams, Highers:

I teach music theory as well, and have prepared pupils for their Rock School Vocal exams, so get in touch if you need some help with passing exams or auditions.

Skype Singing Lessons:

Off on tour or away for longer periods of time? Not to worry! As a touring musician myself I find Skype Singing Lessons to be a great tool to keep in touch with students, colleagues, business partners and, of course, family. All you need is a reliable internet connection, a decent computer and a mic.


I often work with singer-songwriters on polishing their songs. We spend time analyzing their songwriting process and we look at the way they approach harmony and melody. We discuss subjects that range from style specific vocal production when in studio to looking after their voices when on tour.

I took four classes with Viara and I am very happy with my progress.

Viara is patient and takes time to explain how things work.
