Categories: Associate Trainer

I have always been a singer but only came to formal singing training in my late 20s when, as a science teacher, I found myself producing school musicals! I simply wanted to know more and explore what my voice could really do. So, whilst training with Coral Gould MBE I gained my LGSM teaching diploma and left school teaching behind to run my own studio.

After about ten successful years of this I was hungry for further training. I undertook the Vocal Process Accreditation programme with Dr Gillyanne Kayes and Jeremy Fisher, becoming their first Accredited Associate Trainer in 2012 and a Van Lawrence Finalist in 2014.

There followed eight years of working with Musical Theatre and Acting Undergraduates at Liverpool Theatre School and LIPA, training them in Singing, Singing Technique and speaking voice for Acting. At this time, I also worked alongside Vocal Process teaching on their courses and Teaching Accreditation Programme, and continue to do so.

In the past five years I have also changed and developed my own business, VocAL Intuition. It had become obvious to me that voice use depends not only on physical processes, but also on the way we see ourselves. So, as part of my own development I took a training course in Life Coaching, completing this in 2020 with over two hundred hours of training and practice. I am now passionate about integrating this coaching with my voice training, in both singing and speaking.

My current clients include singers, singing teachers, business people wishing to improve their speech and communication skills, and clients referred from the voice clinic for vocal habilitation work.

In my downtime I love drawing, photography, walking, books, acoustics and going to shows and plays!

Your Values, Your Voice: Make your music a reflection of you.

In your session, I offer a focused and accessible approach where I will listen and help you with your specific vocal needs.

I guide clients by integrating their values with their artistic expression. This process involves exploring lyric themes and emotions underpinned by efficient vocal technique. We will find the tools most appropriate for your sung voice to echo your values and experiences, resulting in a repertoire that genuinely reflects you.

My ideal clients are those seeking information to improve their singing voice and need a safe space to explore how to communicate their authenticity. It is also a privilege and an honour to work with singers needing help to rebalance vocal function or to be a gentle guide in their vocal recovery.

Whether opting for in-person sessions at my private studio or beaming into the Zoom room, I welcome singers across various genres. If you would like help finding your distinctive sound, whether for yourself, a recording, performance, or audition, and prefer a tailored and thoughtful approach to your vocal development, reach out and let’s chat.

Kindness through performing arts

I want every student I teach to understand that their voice is unique with the power to impact other people’s lives. Because I am passionate about how performers can use music and songs to connect with an audience, I set up my own Academy in television, film and musical theatre – StageScreen – coaching vocals, choreography and acting, and specialising in working with performers aged 8-18.

I’m an experienced performer myself and love working with actors and dancers who want to sing in musical theatre (it’s where I started). In a typical session we’ll use story telling through song and healthy vocal techniques to help you find your connection to the music, lyrics and movement.

I began studying with Vocal Process over 15 years ago, and am now a Musical Theatre lecturer, a performing arts adjudicator, and, most recently, the new creative director at Promising Productions

I’m an accredited singing teacher with over 30 years professional experience as a performer and teacher. In a typical lesson I like to find out what each student wants to sing, then we’ll do a physical and vocal warmup, a targeted vocal exercise and a sing. We always discuss the lyrics and meaning of a song too.

I love teaching teenagers working towards GCSEs or auditioning for Uni, and I like working with absolute beginners of any age. Many of my adult beginners will ask me to sing with them so they can experiment with harmonies.

In my private studio (Now Sing) I’ve helped hundreds of children and adults on the journey to becoming better singers, with outstanding results.

I recently launched Little Voices North Hampshire, a franchised singing and drama school, which now operates from four locations providing singing and acting lessons for students aged 4-18.

I appear regularly as a professional singer with various bands and artists, and I love singing and teaching popular music vocals, musical theatre and particularly pop.

Music for most people is freedom and escape and joy and liberation. But often you go into a “music class” and the experience is often in contradiction to those values.
Music teaching traditionally has had an old-school culture, based on the master-apprentice model. This culture of intensity doesn’t work with the general level of social consciousness and awareness developing in people.

I aim for my classes to be a safe space where we’ll see where you are, what you need, and together we will figure out the best way to get you where you want to go. I will help you set your goals and find your unique path as a singer.

My lessons cover anything from learning to sing in tune (pitch development) and understanding breath and support, to working on songs or pieces of your choice. We’ll do all the things. And we’ll have fun while we do them.

I work online internationally, helping a whole range of people- from preparing for professional gigs and auditions to performing at a special events or karaoke; People who are serious about singing, and those just looking for a safe space to express themselves and find their voice. I also work with beginners who haven’t been able to find the kind of help they need to start on their journey.

It’s a safe space for everyone. Queer inclusive. Multi-Genre. Multi-Language. Fun.

Preparing authentic voices for professional journeys in a supportive, informative and fun environment.  I am a Musical Theatre and CCM singing teacher and vocal coach specialising in gender transitioning voices.

I work online and in person from my studio in Cornwall, focussing on what you want to do with your voice. With over 20 years of experience as a teacher and performer, I have developed an approach that is entirely client-led, with a strong emphasis on allowing individuals to develop their own unique sounds in a healthy and positive way.

Your singing lesson is time to explore your voice in a safe space where the possibilities for discovery are endless. I don’t believe there is one right way to sing, because every voice is different. Instead, I use a voice-science-based approach focussing on your vocal needs and wishes.

Whether you’ve been striving for a specific sound but haven’t quite found it, you’re a Musical Theatre specialist aiming to master that authentic rock onset, or you’ve embarked on your gender transitioning journey and need clear reliable, reassuring and tailored guidance for your voice.
