Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you teach complete beginners?

Absolutely, if you’ve never even touched a mic before you’re more than welcome! I have taught loads of beginners over the years! 

Do you teach children?

Yes, I teach children of all ages to sing! Music is a fantastic tool for learning, as well as developing confidence & social skills in young people. Our exciting lessons will ensure that they really enjoy learning to sing with much of the input on the music we cover being chosen by the student. You are more than welcome to join us during the singing lesson if you wish to sit in! I have also been fully CRB checked.

Where are you based?

I teach all my singing lessons at my teaching space located on Vale Mills Boyer Street which is just off Abbey street. The studio is the perfect place to learn to sing, with a calm, relaxed atmosphere and a great piano to sing along with. My full teaching address will be provided upon your first lesson booking.

What songs will we sing?

Its up to you! We'll sing a combination of songs which help to build your range, expression and stamina, as well as any songs which you love. I'm open to all styles so we can focus on the music that you really enjoy as well as improving your singing.

Do I need anything before I start my first lesson?

Not at all, I have all the equipment here that you are more than welcome to use!

Can we arrange group lessons?

Yes. Group lessons are a great way of learning performance skills and we can work particularly well on ensemble and harmony work. The largest groups I teach are groups of 5, please get in touch for more information.

Do you offer gift vouchers? 

Yes, call me for more information!

I’m tone deaf and have never even touched an instrument in my entire life, do you think I can learn to sing?

Anyone…and I mean ANYONE can learn to sing. All you need are some detailed structured lessons, some gentle encouragement and of course lots of practice and you’ll be singing away in no time at all!
