Private tuition

ATTENTION

I have to let you know that I won’t be able to accept new regular students until September 2018, as I am planning a change of location that is not totally guaranteed, so is not the best idea to start teaching new students if I might not be able to stay in Richmond for a sensible amount of time. In June 2018 I will eliminate this message and either start accepting new students again or will let you know my new location (still to be determined).

Thanks for reading.

Welcome to my private tuition page!

I take a small number of private students at my home in Ham (Richmond Upon Thames) with which we work precisely over what they need, be it style, technique, audition or exams preparation. I have 19 years of experience in teaching voice both to amateurs and to those who want to become professionals, and I also teach children over 7 years old who love singing..

Voice lessons can also be combined with sight-reading and music awareness, specially if you are planning to do exams. I currently prepare for ABRSM exams.

Pricing is simple. I charge £36 for one hour session, £29 for a 45m session and £18 for a 30m session. I still have special discounts for children under 12 (ask me about it).

You can contact me and ask for an assessment so that we can get to know each other. This will take between 30 and 45 minutes and it’s free of charge. You will get my honest opinion about what are you able to do and how can I help you.

¿CLASSICAL OR MODERN?

I’ve been asked many times if a classically trained teacher has something or not to offer to the world of pop and modern music, and the opposite. If technique is too different or can be used for both styles. There is not a unique answer to this, as it depends on what it works for each teacher and the background of each one. After having trained classically and thought for nine years in a modern music school (teaching voice to jazz and pop singers) I must say I learned a lot from them, and this is what I apply for different ways of singing.

So, can you believe this is the same person? 😉

Breathing technique, articulation, posture and emission is something I teach as general basic technique. Later, you develop your way of singing, with my support, in the way that fits the style you are singing. This is the way I can sing both modern and classical.

I am both proud and happy to have had students who have become professionals or are singing at a professional level, and are succeeding at different styles and levels. Click on the links to know about them.

I am also very happy to teach children with a passion for singing, from the age of seven. I would look for performing opportunities for them, and once a year we do a recording practice, such as here.
