Hello! Thank you for visiting my website. I am a vocal coach, performer & teacher of many years experience, based in Stroud, Gloucestershire & would be delighted to work with you, whatever your experience, goals, ability or age. It gives me great pleasure to help my students fulfil their potential.
My life in music has taught me that each person's voice is as unique as their finger print, a many layered composite of every experience they have ever had. The voice literally says it all. This is why I do my utmost to make my students & workshop participants feel safe & valued. Your voice has worth and beauty because it reflects your unique being.
Are you looking to find your voice for the first time? Or do you need to refine already significantly developed skills? Perhaps you're a singer/songwriter. Maybe it's music theatre, pop, or singing grades that you're into. It could be as straightforward as improving technique or involve exploring improvisation. Perhaps you're addressing trauma & more interested in toning, using the vibration of the voice for healing - energy medicine. I have spent my life accruing & refining several complementary skills & everything leads me back to the voice. I believe I can help you take your next step.
I'm very aware of what can get in the way of fluent self expression, having faced my own challenges as a professional singer/pianist. In addition to a thorough classical & contemporary vocal education, I've trained in several modalities & have developed a teaching method that is gentle, thorough, holistic & body based.
I passionately believe that the liberation of the voice is a vital key to the liberation of the self through free, full and truthful expression.
Finally, I often tell my students that I have never taught anyone who had the stage fright that I had to overcome. That person hasn't crossed my doorstep yet. If you think that person is you, welcome!
