Learn how to sing

I am a mobile vocal coach, meaning that I can travel to you if you are based within Norwich city itself. I have found that students learn well within the comfort of their own homes, helping my pupils build confidence as well as vocal strength and ability.

I am keen to ensure that my students learn through the music that they are passionate about. Although I have a particular interest in classical, opera and musicals I am able to cover genres including pop and light rock to help you develop into the singing you wish to be. In our lessons with will combine learning songs alongside developing an understanding of key vocal exercises that will help you to gain control of your voice.
