About Me

I started Classical Singing lessons formally at eleven years old where I was schooled privately by a scholar from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I went on to have lessons with this teacher for many years and throughout this time he took me through the ABRSM exams to Grade 8, where I gained a distinction. My teacher was both encouraging and dedicated and many of the exercises and techniques he taught me I still use today. In addition to these lessons, I studied Choral work, Music Theory and various other singing techniques with a variety of professors until I went to drama school at 17. Whilst there, I continued my private vocal coaching both within college and externally.

Alongside my singing lessons, I also began peforming in professional productions from the age of 11 and have appeared in a variety of shows ranging from Musical Theatre through to Opera. I also took part in various singing competitions nationwide, regular concert performances, residential courses and was the lead vocalist in a series of Jazz bands.

I first began teaching whilst at Drama School and throughout subsequent years have taught adult and child beginners, those who wish to improve and current working professionals all over London and Suffolk. I now offer lessons to students of all levels and ages from my base in Ipswich.

My lessons encourage a relaxed, fun and focused approach to singing and my aim is to help my students unlock their potential and really explore their voices in a safe environment. If you would like to book a free consultation please contact me.
