Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Singing to anyone aged 7 or above, focusing mainly on contemporary singing styles, such as pop, rock, soul, blues, and country. I also teach musical theatre, which involves working with the vocalist on diction, and vocal techniques to give them a clear vocal sound.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I received an award for gaining the highest grade in the UK on my grade 8 vocal exam, which has enabled me to go on to teach people how to sing, and has also enabled me to work with established artists on their albums and in a live capacity. I also have an HNC in music, and I am working towards my foundation degree in music.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught at various musical theatre schools, including StageCoach, and Summerscales performers (formerly Karen Clarke Theatre School), amongst a few others. I am currently a music lecturer at Brooklands College in Weybridge, and I work in various bands in and around the Surrey area.

I also work as a session vocalist, and I have sung for various established acts in the UK, such as Bruce Foxton. I have worked in a covers band with Al Murray (the Pub Landlord), and over the past few years I have had the opportunity to perform at Download festival twice, performed and recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, and will be fronting Al Murray's house band during his show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this August.
