An expert with over 20 years performing and teaching experiences, I work with professional and aspiring professional artists in Musical Theatre, Contemporary Commercial Music (Pop) and Classical Genres. Specialising in Crossover artists, I work in a multidisciplinary way, using Bel Canto, Dalcroze, Estill, SLS, Accent Methods and Alexander Techniques within my teaching. I also ensure my education and practice is up to date, working with leading voice pedagogues worldwide to keep my own understanding and practice current. I am very client-centred in my approach, paying full attention to my clients’ aims and ambitions so that my singers feel ownership of their progress from day one.
As well as working as Head of Voice for the Royal Marines Band Service, I have worked as a session singer for some of the biggest pop music names, have performed in countless operas, directed musicals in the west end and worked with countless professional and aspiring professional artists. In short, my career is varied and fulfilled…and I love it!
My own innovative, unique and fun teaching style combining with the vast knowledge of a wide variety of established methodologies, ensures that maximum progress is made in minimum time. Lessons with me are grounded in technique, informative and fun. If you are a professional or an aspiring professional performer and want to learn how to give 100% in your performances but not at the expense of a healthy, trained voice, then get in touch.
How it started
My singing career began when I read Music at Cambridge University. Here I recorded countless times for Radio and TV and was a member of the University Chamber Choir. Fast forward 20 years and I’ve been fortunate to have a career which spans a wide variety of styles. As well as being Head of Voice for the Royal Marines Band Service, I have worked as a session singer for some of today’s biggest pop music names, have performed in countless operas, directed musicals in the west end and worked with many professional and aspiring professional singers. In short, my career is varied and fulfilled…and I love it!
As well as still performing and conducting regularly and working for the Royal Marines Band Service, I have a thriving private teaching practice, working with singers online and face to face from my purpose-built studio at home.
How I can help you
Accustomed to working in all styles, I have prepared singers for Operatic Roles and Contemporary performances alike. Recent and current clients of mine can be found performing as regular artists on the West End and in international Opera Companies. A number of my clients have also gained places at Royal Conservatories across UK and Europe studying voice, as well as those now studying at commercial and Musical Theatre institutions such as Mountview BIMM, LIPA, and The Bird.
For the last five years, I have worked as Head of Voice for the Royal Marines Band Service, working on their many performances throughout the year. I have most recently conducted the Royal Marines Band Service Choir and prepared soloists for concerts in the Royal Albert Hall. Here, my role involves working with young singers, taking them from their arrival at the School of Music and working with them as they begin a career as a professional Singer in the Band Service. In addition, I am also an Artistic Director for Luminosa Music, a consortium of four choirs, ranging from a professional chamber choir, an 80 strong adult choir and two youth choirs.
Equipped with the latest in soundproofing and technology, I am in love with my new dedicated space and I’m really pleased to see how much my clients love it and how at home and relaxed they feel.
I am based near Alton, Hampshire, ideally located for face-to-face clients in the Hampshire, London, Surrey, Wiltshire, Sussex and Berkshire areas. However, over the past 10 years, I have increasingly coached singers online, working with professional and aspiring professional singers, including performers as far afield as China and the US. My studio is a warm, welcoming safe space to work together and whether via the internet or in person, the quality of teaching, and care and progress I make with my clients is exactly the same.
