I am an experienced singer based in Leeds, currently studying at the Royal Northern College of Music studying for an Mmus in Solo Performance, under the tutelage of acclaimed dramatic soprano Jane Irwin. I have just achieved a distinction for the first year of my masters. During this time I have enjoyed performing as a concert artist, in college operas and opera scenes as well as furthering my choral experience and musicianship skills. I have had the opportunity to work with reknowned artists, Susan Bullock, Roger Vignoles, Pat McMahon to name but a few and so I have acquired a firm grounding of vocal knowledge.
Having worked with extremely proficient vocal teachers I have experienced first hand the joy that learning to sing and perform freely can bring and I believe I am well qualified to impart that expertise in my teaching.
I aim to provide a structured, encouraging and interesting learning environment in which the student can learn more about their voice, develop a solid technique and enjoy singing. I am passionate about teaching all ages and can sensitively adapt my teaching style to what is required.
I teach Beginners- Intermediate. My own experience lies in classical singing, Lied, Art Song and Aria but I`m happy working on a variety genres, specifically Musical theatre. I am happy with an appropriate challenge!
As I am an aspiring professional I am consistently discovering the benefits of yoga, pilates and posture work in being able to sing freely and I would aim to incorporate this focus on physicality in my lessons.
