Would you like the opportunity to work on your voice in a safe and supportive environment? I offer 1-hour sessions for adult singers. The lessons can be tailored to your needs but my main focus and strengths are looking at the foundations of good voice use – posture, breath, warm up and technique. I can also work on performance skills – projection, articulation, delivering the song, dealing with nerves etc. My background is in natural voice and the folk/roots tradition, so I don’t work on specific styles like jazz/pop although I have some grounding in those techniques.

Sessions are suitable for complete beginners and unconfident singers, to singers wanting to develop their voice further and/or performers wanting to work on technique and delivery.

Sessions cost £25 – book and pay for a block of 4 in advance for a discounted price of £85. You are free to come for a one-off or have a series of sessions.

Lessons take place at my home in Marsden and daytime and evening sessions are available subject to my diary. I also offer lessons in Hebden Bridge on Monday daytimes.

I am a founder member of The Natural Voice Network and am committed to the philosophy that singing is an essential aspect of human expression.  I trained originally with Frankie Armstrong but have gone on to attend a range of courses and workshops including a Voice Summer School at Central School of Speech and Drama and completing post-graduate studies in Continuing Professional Development for Musicians at Guildhall School of Music and Drama. For the past 12 years I have had regular singing lessons with Mark Maylan – one of the foremost singing teachers in the UK.
