I have a wide range of students all with different goals and covering a wide range of standards. For some lessons are about looking towards a future career in singing and for others it is about building confidence with goals such as joining a local church choir or group.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I believe in establishing a firm basic technique in singing that sets the singer up to be able to perform in any genre they choose, allowing them to develop naturally and safely as their voice grows. The most important thing is that students enjoy the lessons whilst progressing and growing in confidence.
