What I do:
I combine my solo career with voice teaching of classical, opera and musical theatre genres. I teach from home, am fully CRB checked and parents are welcome to stay with their children during lessons. I can prepare students for roles, oratorios, recitals, opera galas, concerts, recordings, music festivals, competitions, GCSE and A Level performance examinations, auditions, and have experience with ABRSM, London College of Music and Victoria College of Music examining boards; however I welcome students wanting to learn without entering exams. Lessons are based on healthy warm ups, teaching a solid technique, and then applying the knowledge to pieces. A graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music, I work throughout the UK but am now based in Carrickfergus with some lessons avaliable in Belfast. Rates: £15 for 30 minutes and £25 for 1 hour lesson. First lesson FREE!
An experienced Mezzo Soprano, I have delivered educational workshops for Clonter Opera and the Halle Orchestra, and am available to deliver vocal masterclasses to singers of all abilities. I request that details of what is to be performed be given in advance and for singers to bring an extra copy of the music on the day. I have performed in masterclasses of Barbara Bonney, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Roger Vingoles, Joan Rogers, Kathryn Harries, Mark Shanahan, Paul Farrington, Mary King, Raymond Leppard and Laurent Pillot, so have a wealth of knowledge to share.
