Singing is an art and a sport you need to have the strength of an athlete, allowing you the freedom to create the right vocal quality and acting choice. All private lessons are carried out at my SW2 Studio.

Developing your voice

During a one hour lesson, students will work on specific singing exercises and songs to develop your own voice and style, increase your vocal strength and develop your vocal muscles, your voice will get a personnel workout. Singer songwriters are encouraged to bring their own original songs to solve any technical issues. I have an extensive library of musical theatre, pop and rock songs appropriate for your voice, age and personality, so you are prepared for your auditions or performances. We need to balance technique, style, emotion and acting. Let me find repertoire that is suitable and we will explore the text together.
