How long will it take to improve my singing?
Everyone is different and the speed at which your singing skills improve depends on how committed you are to developing your singing skills. You can improve with just a few lessons, however vocal mastery takes time, practice and patience. There are no quick fixes; you're learning a special skill. It's not quite a marathon, but it's definitely not a sprint!
I have found that it takes an average of 2/3 years to reach a proficient level of singing with the strongest skills that professional recording and gigging singers need.
Singers who practise regularly usually see results more quickly than those who are more casual about their progress.
What if I've never had singing lessons before?
Your starting point doesn't matter. Both face-to-face and online singing lessons can be a fantastic way to boost your singing skills, regardless of your experience.
In fact, the online learning environment can boost your active listening skills, meaning your your ability to connect with your voice is more accurate and your development as a singer is accelerated.
Do I really need a vocal coach?
With years of experience and ongoing training as a qualified and experienced vocal coach I understand the unique qualities of your individual voice.
I will guide you through customised vocal exercises crafted specifically to your needs and learning style, drawing from my extensive experience of training countless singers.
You will unlearn old habits that cause damage to your voice and create new habts that will build a strong foudation for great singing.
I have a background with more than two decades of professional singing and performance experience. This, coupled with my vocal training qualifications obtained from esteemed institutions like RSL Awards and ICMP music college, I have acquired a profound understanding of your voice as a musical instrument. This expertise enables me to navigate the intricacies and subtleties inherent in each distinctive voice, ensuring a rapid and comprehensive understanding of your specific vocal requirements.
Can online singing lessons work for me?
The 2020 lockdown saw my biggest influx of students, all of whom learned online. Singers who work with me see huge leaps in their singing ability and enjoy high levels of personal and professional success.
Online singing lessons are, arguably the best way to learn, for a number of reasons:
No time consuming commute in hot weather or cold wind and rain, meaning less disruption for you and your family/friends/colleagues.
You can continue practicing your new skills immediately without having to wait until you get home.
Money saved on hiring a studio - which your singing teacher passes on to you.
Improve your singing and performance skills from anywhere in the world.
Constant improvement in technology.
Physical locality is no longer an issue - I have even taught one of Lady Gaga's crew while on tour!
My first singing student to embrace remote singing lessons was from Hong Kong. He was a singer who was preparing for his audition at the highly regarded Leeds Conservatoire. After working together for a year, he passed his audition and was offered a much sought after place.

Who Am I?
I am a professional singer with more than twenty years of experience. During that time I have performed in more than thirty countries to audiences of up to 30,000 and sold three international top ten albums, including a Number One.
But I wasn't a born singer. As a child I was a dancer; singing came much later, when I was 23. Because of this it is my belief that it's NEVER too late to get serious about singing.
I graduated with BMus Music Performance and LTCL music teaching Licentiate from ICMP, London's top music college after completing Grades in both Popular Music and Musical Theatre, while building my singing career. I went on to complete my PGCE at the prestigious Institute of Education.
As a qualified Music Lecturer I have taught, developed and led music, music performance and performing arts courses from GCSE to Degree level in Inner and Greater London colleges for more than a decade.
I embrace lifelong learning in myself and in others. I have studied with and alongside some of the world's most prominent vocal coaches and love sharing everything I learn passionately with my students.
It is always an honour to work with dedicated singers and many of the thousands of singers and musicians I have trained have their own professional careers in music, media and the performing arts industries.
