Tuition is offered at various levels.
Graduate teaching: This is usually for students who have completed their schooling, who will have had a certain amount of singing lessons, who possibly have taken Associated Board or similar exams to a high level and who wish to pursue singing more seriously either at an accredited musical establishment or who intend to study voice in greater depth.
Postgraduate teaching: For students who have completed higher and further education of some sort – not necessarily musical, and who wish to go on to pursue singing at a more advanced level, either privately or at an accredited musical establishment. You will need to click on one of the options below to enable us to help you more specifically.
Professional tuition: For those who have already completed a programme of singing tuition and are wishing to, or have already embarked on a career as a professional classical singer.
Individual Tuition: If you require individual classical vocal tuition or coaching, you will probably already have reached a decision to make more of your vocal skills, and will already have had a certain number of singing lessons.
You will need to arrange a Consultation lesson with several accredited teachers to find the one best suited to you.
A consultation lesson is a two-way process to enable both you the singer and the teacher to see if you are wholly professionally compatible. A consultation lesson is not a guarantee that you would necessarily be taken on as a student.
