1:1 Singing lessons are currently happening online on zoom
My vocal teaching comprises a mixture of Classical Vocal Technique and contemporary voice work learnt from outstanding teachers such as Nadine George- director of Voice Studio International in London, and great jazz singers: Fionna Duncan, Liane Carroll, Sheila Jordan,Tina May, Mark Murphy and more.
My work is holistic and takes into account the unique experience and individuality that each person brings, with a focus on good vocal health, excellent pitch, providing a solid ground for the voice using the body as a support, musicality, a free and relaxed singing style and great storytelling. All popular genres are taught including jazz, pop, folk and singer/songwriter.
Our voices carry the story of our lives and include all of our experience and understanding. Learning to sing and express ourselves freely and with confidence is a great and liberating journey and I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to share my knowledge with others.
Lessons usually last one hour (less for young singers) and are roughly 50% technique and 50% working on songs.
I am a highly experienced teacher and performer, lessons are uniquely structured to suit each individual.
We work on: Posture, breath, vocal support, accurate pitch, opening up your full vocal range, interpretation of lyrics.
I can also help with confidence, performance, exam preparation.
All ages and all levels of singing experience are welcome, from complete beginners to experienced singers.
VOCAL WORKSHOPS - I can provide a variety of workshops including:
Vocal workshops for adults and young people of all levels from beginners to experienced.
Performance Practice for more experienced singers.
Singing in corporate settings for team building etc.
Singing for people living with dementia and their carers.
Singing for people living with breathing problems.
If you are looking for a practical and holistic approach to teaching with proven results, I can't recommend Andrea as a vocal coach highly enough. Sophie Bonadea.
Andrea is a sensitive, knowledgeable and patient teacher who makes lessons fun, I have become a much more confident and tuneful singer as a result of her lessons. Margaret H.
Andrea created a warm, inclusive space where all singers, who were of varying experience and ability were made to feel welcome and safe. She provided us all with individual, practical feedback and guidance resulting in immediate, noticeable improvements. Workshop participant.
