I teach in my own home, in Eyemouth, in a very open and relaxed atmosphere. I know that having a singing lesson can be a nerve-wracking experience, especially at first, so I provide a friendly reception when you arrive and put you at your ease.
I have a huge amount of resources available to ensure that your learning experience is very productive as well as fun! All students are provided with backing tracks, handouts and technical exercises as appropriate.
I am able to work with all abilities but am especially interested in helping enthusiastic singers of all ages who are perhaps in the early or intermediate stages of their vocal development. So if you’re new to singing tuition, it is crucial you are taught the basics, and taught them properly.
Lessons are tailor made to your individual needs and goals whether you want to sing for fun or follow a syllabus and take exams. Lessons can offer the following:
I do not insist on long-term tuition, where students have to attend regular lessons, repeating the same exercises until their voice improves. You can attend as often as you like, but there's no compulsion to attend every week or every fortnight.
I have more than 20 years experience teaching music and singing to primary school children. I use the Kodály approach which is very effective with young children who will learn all the musical elements which musicians need through playing and singing of musical games and songs.
