I was a creative but shy child with a passion for singing. My teenage years were spent scribbling lyrics and belting out songs around the house, but I made no connection between the joy of singing and the stuffy school music room. I had no idea that the voice was an instrument that you could develop- even make a living from!
It wasn’t until I had major surgery on my spine as a young adult that I had an epiphany- I was going to follow my dream of singing, no excuses allowed. On leaving hospital, I joined a band and started writing and recording my first songs. I enrolled on every musicianship course I could, whilst supporting myself with a full time day job.
Soon other students were asking for advice and my passion for teaching came into focus- I loved watching others blossom. Whilst developing my own voice, I spent the following 6 years learning vocal technique and developing my teaching skills. I studied the (fascinating!) science behind the voice at the Royal Academy of Music, and set up my own vocal studio in Kentish Town.
I regularly perform as it keeps me in touch with what my students are going through (and I love it too of course!) I’m proud to sing with the London Contemporary Voices as well as fronting a band.
Most importantly though, I consider it my personal mission to let you know that it’s never too late to learn to sing! Whatever your singing goals, whether you’re a complete beginner or a professional, I am rooting for you every step of the way!
