Training in notation, melody, rhythm and harmony. Preparation for Associated Board and Trinity Guildhall Grade exams, as well as GCSE and A-level music.
Learn advanced musicianship
Coaching in more complex musical skills such as four-part harmony, counterpoint and the analysis of form for students preparing for higher-level exams.
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, musical 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.
