My name is Roos Kruijswijk, a qualified singer with a Bmus (hons) in Voice & Production.
I have experience performing a wide variety of music. I've played at many venues across UK, The Netherlands, Sweden and France. I've sung at weddings, corporate events and regularly sing in hotels in central London such as Park Plaza and The Montague. Some bands I played/play for are: The Lollipops, Sam & Roos, Daisy Roots, The Rhapsodies, SOUND.
I also run ‘The Bridge Choir’ in London Bridge, "All The Voices' in Manor House and 2 children choirs in Canary Wharf. I've taught singing and beginner piano at the ‘The London School of Arts’, and give music, dance and drama lessons in nurseries across London, through the agency ‘Lucy Sparkles & Friends’.
Singing is my passion and I love sharing my knowledge and experience with my students!
In June 2018 I organised a charity showcase featuring some of my singing students.
All ages and levels are welcome. Jazz, soul, blues, pop, etc. My singing lessons are tailored to each individual student's requirements.
Lessons will be divided in two, beginning with strengthening your vocal technique. The vocal technique I primarily use is called Complete Vocal Technique.
Secondly we will apply the technique to a song of your choice. I think vocal technique is very important, but it is also important that you enjoy the songs you sing and that you put as much feeling and connection into your performance as possible. This is what will bring the song and your voice to life!
To capture your improvement, I occasionally record a demo, or video with my professional studio equipment during the lesson free of charge. See of some of my students below:
I teach in my house, 2 min walk from New Cross station, 4 min walk from Deptford station,
I can also travel to you.
30 minutes: £20.00
45 minutes (recommended) £30.00
1 hour or more: £35.00 per hour
£150 for 5x1h pack, to be used within 7 weeks.
£90 for 5x30min pack, to be used within 7 weeks.
£280 for 10x1h pack, to be used within 12 weeks,
£180 for 10x30m pack, used within 12 weeks.
All start from the first lesson taken, so not the payment.
I have a 48 hour cancellation policy. Please notify me by phone or text at 07412722844 if you must cancel or reschedule a lesson. This ensures that I have enough time to make any needed changes to my lesson schedule. If students do not give me enough notice, they will be charged for their lesson, whether they show up or not.

"In 1 year of lessons Roos Kruijswijk has massively developed my technique, tone and singing range. She was as determined to get good results as I was and taught me a range of easy exercises that were extremely beneficial and with practice have made me a far more competent and confident singer. Roos is extremely personable and friendly, but also professional. The atmosphere in her lessons is fun but very focused and I would highly recommend her as a singing teacher" Cole Salewicz, Artbreak.
“Roos is an excellent teacher. In a very short time, she significantly improved my singing and helped to build my confidence. Her approach of using a combination of breathing exercises, vocal techniques and recordings really worked for me. And importantly, every lesson was also great fun. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for lessons, whether you are a complete beginner (like me) or someone who sings regularly but wants to continue to improve.” Nick, Greenwhich
Roos is a great teacher, friendly and professional. The lessons are well rounded between technique and singing. Great tips for improving your technique and practice routines which you can do at home. Very flexible, I play guitar and sing and my lessons are tailored around that. Highly recommended if you're looking to improve your singing! Alex Ardelean
"As a complete beginner I really didn’t know what to expect, but I have been blown away with Roos and her approach to teaching. Roos has given me a greater appreciation for music and, although I’m only a few lessons in, I’m already improving. The techniques Roos teaches are even helping me with public speaking. Roos has been fantastic and has even convinced me to join her choir, which has been a revelation. I can’t wait for the next lesson." Gareth, Blackheath
