Even the most talented and dedicated people struggle with their singing at some point.
It can be really frustrating, depressing and disheartening- I totally get that. For this reason, all sessions are one-to-one so that we can really focus on YOU.
We will work together collaboratively, at your pace. Your singing lesson is a chance for you to experiment, make mistakes and really find your unique voice. It will be science-y and challenging, but empowering and enjoyable too.
You will be given some technical strategies to put into practice outside of the sessions. Don’t worry, they will be simple, effective and I guarantee you won’t do them wrong.

What Will I Sing?
We will work on songs of your choosing- you are an artist and I respect your taste and style. I might make occasional suggestions and will definitely give advice, but choosing material on your own is an important part of understanding your voice. You MUST do this yourself.
An example session might include:
A diagnostic of your current vocal habits and health
Warm up and warm down strategies - particularly important for busy gigging singers
Individualised vocal development exercises- reviewed regularly to allow constant improvement
Strategies for accessing more range
Releasing vocal tension and unlocking vocal power
Strategies for efficient use of breath
Vocal Health guidance and signposting
How many sessions will I need?
I’m not going to lie to you, real change takes time and commitment.
I suggest that you book a one-off session first. After that we can make a plan for going forwards. I promise I will never try and ‘sell’ you more sessions than you need. However many people enjoy the process so much that they continue indefinitely.

My top tips for getting the most out of your Vocal Coaching sessions.
Record each session on your smart phone, and listen to the recording afterwards. Singers who do this improve much more quickly.
Make notes in a journal such as this one.
Always bring a bottle of water with you (and be well hydrated ahead of time.)
Know your lyrics. Reading takes up brain power that you will need for other things!
Be prepared to make mistakes and sound terrible at times. This is an important part of the process.
