Everybody can sing it`s just finding your range building your confidence then off we go.
Lessons are held in my studio near Chelmsford or home visits are possible. The lesson format is exactly the same from our initial meeting where i ask you to sing any song you feel comfortable with, all of it or some of it. We then discuss your voice the great things about it and the things we could work on. Its very informal and great fun. Most students feel inspired and excited and can`t wait for the next session.
Lessons are available to Both Children from 9 years to Adults
From Beginners, to advanced for fun or for Auditions. If you Love singing then we can work out an individual programme to suit you and your voice.
How to manage your Voice
I have studied various Vocal Techniques and exercises over the years. I have chosen the best, most useful and most successful exercises and I have incorporated them into lessons .
We look at breathing techniques, voice projection, how to use your head voice and chest voice ,what is your diaphragm
and why we have to work on all of those things. Singing and having a great voice is only part of the process being able to use it effectively makes you stand out from the rest.
We sing a selection of songs from every genre looking at styles and how they differ from song to song. Pop to Rock to West End musical theatre. Articulation when to use it correctly. Exams are available in all Genres which we can discuss if you feel you want to have some grades to show for all your hard work.
Singing is not just about how you achieve a great sound and how to project your voice, it is also about how we look after your voice to get the best results.
I cannot tell you how to live your life but i can advise you on the most appropriate way to look after your voice.
Your voice is your instrument it needs to be looked after exactly the same as any other instrument, Guitarist will polisha nd clean the Guitar on a regular Basis . A string player will tune and oil the wood to get the best sound Timbre .
As a vocalist you need to be aware of how to get the best out of your instrument. Therfore part of the lesson will be a discussion on What you eat before lessons, what you drink, What not to eat or drink this is all essential to get the best out of your voice.
This also applies to professional performers before they go on stage.
Managing change in the voice. For both Young Girls and Boys the voice will change as they mature, Discussions around that will be part of the session if required.
As i said its up to you how serious you want to take this i can only offer support and advice.
Singing Lessons in Essex.

Lessons are informal and fun but if you are keen to progress weekly lessons are advisable, but i also understand that people have busy lives and sometimes lessons every two weeks is better for you.
Lessons are 30 minutes or 60 minutes depending on what we are working on or towards.
Lessons are to be paid in advance preferably in blocks of 5 or 10. ( discount available for block booking)
if you are unable to make the lesson for whatever reason i require a minimum of 24 hours notice otherwise the lesson will be chargeable. or if we can rearrange for the same week that is generally ok. It`s easy really i like to be sensible and work together so being fair and having regular lessons will enable you to make the best progress.
Please contact me to discuss options with regards to days times and fees.
I take the lessons very seriously whilst being informal and having fun. I have worked with many well know people from Rock to Pop to West end, you only get out of this what you put in
