After years of being an active performer (singer and keys) in several bands and Head of Music at Secondary school level, I decided to branch out alone to run my own Music school. I offer individual singing lessons for fun, confidence, stress relief and therapeutic benefit, focussing on the enjoyment of music. I also offer ABRSM grades up to Grade 5. Alongside this, I run a project called ‘Singing for the Soul’ – running interactive group singing sessions at care and therapy centres. I still perform as a lead singer and keys player with two bands at numerous events in London, Windsor and Maidenhead, performing in this capacity at festivals, local pub gigs and charity events.
I currently have a large and diverse group of around 40 private singing students on my books, of all ages. I have fourteen years’ experience teaching Music in secondary schools up to A Level standard. I was a secondary school Head of Music for nine years, both at Newlands Girls’ School in Maidenhead and at Drayton Manor High School in Hanwell. Throughout that time I have directed choirs and chamber groups for concerts, trained solo singers for productions and concerts, and coached singers through their A Level coursework recitals. After leaving secondary school teaching I provided vocal coaching for the Performing Arts course at a local college in Maidenhead and was Music Co-ordinator at a Prep School in Crowthorne, I therefore have worked with pupils of all school ages and I now enjoy teaching adults to sing, as well as children.
