I am a classically trained singer who runs a successful teaching practice in York (UK).

With over 15 years' experience as a performer and teacher I ensure that my teaching is tailored to the needs of each individual pupil.

Developing a healthy vocal technique in a supportive environment is at the heart of my teaching. If you are looking for a singing teacher, whatever your standard or past experience, I hope that you find the information on this site helpful.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT YOU COULD DO WITH YOUR VOICE?

Were you told as a child not to sing but you've always wanted to try?

I HAVE EXPERIENCE of helping adults with little or no previous singing experience to discover and develop their voices. Many of my students have subsequently join choirs, sung solos at concerts/weddings/parties, passed singing exams and all have had a lot of fun along the way. Learning to sing stimulates the body and the mind and singing with others can be a wonderful social and musical experience.
