Do I need to have experience? No, not at all. Beginners are very welcome and I am happy to give you an introduction into singing.
What happens during the lessons? My singing lessons are tailored to each individual students requirements. Each lesson will vary according to what areas need more attention. Lessons will be divided in two, beginning with strengthening your vocal technique; singing correctly using your Diaphram, controlling your breathing, rehearsing your scales, working on Pitch & Tone and many other (sometimes weird ) exercises that will help you develop the unique qualities of your voice. secondly we will apply the technique on a song of your choice. I think Vocal technique is very important, but the most important is that you enjoy the song and that you put as much feeling and connection to the song as possible. Because that brings the song and your voice to life! Vocal Technique will support that!
Why would I choose you as a teacher? The special thing about my lessons is that I think feeling is very important and often overlooked by teachers. Also I can record your voice on the song you choose by using a recording program ( Logic ). So you can listen back to your own voice and can really hear what your doing, and maybe even put it on Youtube and show it to family and friends. It is a great way of capturing your improvement. I am very flexible and will fit all the lessons around how you want to learn. I will always be honest and if I am not sure about something I will tell you and find it out for the next lesson.
Could you also give just one theory lesson to help for a exam or audition? Yes I am very good in theory and am very confident that I can help you. I also don't mind it if you just want one lesson, I am glad to help!
Can I buy lessons as a gift? Of course! Gift vouchers are available for all singing lessons.
How often should I attend lessons? You are free to attend lessons as little or as often as you wish. I do recommend attending a lesson at least once in the two weeks and preferably once a week. but you can do however you want it!
What hours do you teach? I teach seven days a week and we can just schedule a time that works best for us both.
Where are you based? I live in New Cross, but I can also come by your house if you have a piano/keyboard.
If I have made an appointment but I need to cancel do I still have to pay? As your teacher, I promise to be prepared to give your lesson at our agreed scheduled time each week, in case of emergencies I will give you at least 24 hours notice if I need to reschedule. My failure to show up for a lesson earns you a free lesson. As my student, you promise to be prepared and on time for your lesson at our agreed scheduled time, and in case of emergencies to give at least 24 hours notice. If not I think it is fair you will still have to pay.
