Stephen Silverman. Singing lessons given in Chafford Hundred

I am a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where I studied singing, piano and clarinet. A former teacher at the London Borough of Havering’s Saturday-morning music schools. I now specialise in teaching classical vocal technique to students who are aiming for a career in singing as well as those who want to be able to perform confidently at a good amateur level in opera or musical theatre.

I have successfully prepared students for auditions at the country’s leading conservatoires, and provide additional coaching to full-time conservatoire students. For students who are preparing for written exams or who just want to develop their general musicianship skills, tuition in music theory, ┬ámusical analysis and the history of music is also available.

As an opera critic, I have had reviews published of performances given by the Royal Opera House, English National Opera, English Touring Opera and Opera Holland Park.

Singing lessons and tuition in music theory and advanced musicianship are available mainly from my home in Essex but I am happy to come to you if  there is a piano available.
