Learn to sing
I know that singing in front of someone for the first time can be a nerve wracking experience. As such, when you arrive I will put you at ease straight away. I love helping my students feel confident and empowered to sing and perform.
The lessons will be fun and challenging and will allow you to focus on your own specific goals. Whether that be preparing a particular song or for a specific performance or audition, building confidence in live performance, or just to have some time focused on yourself and your hobby.
Each lesson is specifically tailored to you but will typically begin with warm up exercises and will progress to working on particular pieces of music. After that we will work on expanding repertoire, building confidence and looking at expression and performance skills. The lesson finishes with a cool down and a discussion on goals and progression. I will help keep your learning focused and progress your skills whilst working at a pace that you are comfortable with.
The lessons are positive, fun and friendly and are focused on your needs and ability. Whether your goals are to learn new material, gain confidence or to sing on stage, I can help you to achieve them.
I have extensive experience working with children and creating fun and playful lessons to help them find the joy in music, singing and rhythm. I teach with an afterschool club doing group lessons for both junior and senior aged students.
I have specialist training to support people with additional needs and learning disabilities to learn to sing and access music . I hold an enhanced DBS check. I have 15 years experience of delivering music workshops, lessons and therapeutic sessions in care and social settings and have numerous qualifications to support my work such as: managing challenging behaviour, epilepsy training, autism awareness, disability awareness, safeguarding, first aid, child protection, adult safeguarding and makaton (sign language).
I have completed further training in voice pedagogy with the British Association of Singing Teachers as well as a National Diploma in Music Practice and Performance.
At present, I am offering online lessons as well as face to face lessons from my home in east Bristol
