About your lesson:

I believe in assisting my students to achieve a healthy, strong singing technique whilst maintaining singing for the joy of music and helping them find their own unique voice, developing with the aid of my guidance and their dedication.

I have my own recording equipment at my studio and a great microphone so you can record your own demo and hear yourself improve!

Each lesson is tailored to the student's unique needs. In your vocal lesson we will go through the inner workings of your voice including focus on –
The larynx, vocal folds, vocal physiology, vocal warm ups, breathing, pitching, scales, improvisation, tone, placement, twang, mix voice, head voice, falsetto, chest voice, music theory, sight reading, posture, vibrato the Artist and Actor within each singer; emotional expression, dynamics.

We can also look at –

Even if you are primarily a singer songwriter focusing on your own
material I ask all singers to bring a cover song with them to their first lesson, emulating the techniques and vocal ‘licks’ of great vocalists will help you find new colours and shades to use in your own vocal palate.

A few pointers for your lessons to maximise lesson time for you.

1. Bring the song you want to work on with you. On an ipod or CD. The
original and if you also desire the backing track.

2. Bring the lyrics printed out.

3. Bring a bottle of water with you and wear comfy clothes that aren't tight
around the abdominal area.

4. Lessons start at allocated time and end an hour later. Please
arrive punctually as I have pupils booked in after and before your
lesson time. Due to this reason, even if you are late, lessons have to
end within the allocated slot time.
