Thanks for visiting my education site. I have been a professional soloist, teaching of singing. pedagogy lecturer and course leader for over 15 years. When it comes to understanding how the voice functions, few people have had the breadth of experience in both teaching and performing that I have. My varied career as singer, teacher, lecturer, choir trainer and conductor gives me a unique set of skills to help you achieve your technical and artistic goals efficiently.
My clients include professional singers, voice teachers, choristers, and professional singers/performers with complex voice issues. I am also happy to with anyone; professionals, students, committed amateurs, who are committed to putting in the time and effort to achieving their goals. In my experience, the more you put into voice, the more you get out.
I also lecture in voice pedagogy and have run courses at some of the nations leading arts institutions, including; Chethams School of Music, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the Royal Northern College of Musi. I am the principal lecturer of the voice pedagogy course at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. I am also a visiting vocal consultant for the Mascarade Opera Studio and New Generation Artists Festival in Florence, working regularly with the young artists their.
I run accredited Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses and workshops for singers, singing teachers and voice professionals through my company Classical Voice Training Ltd, and have co-authored the Classical Voice Training Workbook, which is available on our Classical Voice Training courses and to my stands. The Workbook is soon to be published.
I enjoy training and mentoring teachers and voice practitioners, at home and around the world, through my company Classical Voice Training Ltd and at Vocal Craft.
Clients who study with me, like me, prefer a practical evidence based approach to voice, that is constantly being updated as voice science continues to grow.
Post-COVID19, I regularly run live studios in London at the Royal Opera House, and at my home near Malvern, I also work regularly at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, and can offer sessions in Birmingham. Currently, due to COVID19 I will be working virtually (usually via Zoom) full time, and am able to offer more time in the teaching studio, as my live performance schedule has been suspended due to COVID19.
