Singing - Puppy & Microphone

Singing

Singing is the most natural expression of musicality and is woven into the fabric of society. It is an expressive communication that contributes to so many aspects of our lives and means so much to so many people. Learning to sing properly, mastering full control of your voice, is one of the most satisfying and therapeutic experiences. Once you know how, the world of music is open to you, whether you choose to sing professionally or for fun, alone or as part of a choir, there is no comparative joy or sense of freedom.

Who Can Learn?

There is no ‘ideal’ age to start singing, I am happy to teach students of any age and adapt my techniques to suit the maturity of the voice and ensure safe development. However, more rigorous training can usually start in boys and girls aged 9 years or older once the voice has developed suitably.

I am also an experienced teacher of adults. It’s never too late to learn to sing and lessons can be tailored to suit your requirements whether you’re an accomplished vocalist wanting to fine tune your skills, or a beginner having lessons for the first time.

  • Get in touch to discuss your preferred times – lessons available daytimes, evenings, and weekends.

Qualifications

As explained by The ABRSM “…assessments motivate students of all levels and ages, giving them a series of realistic goals and tangible rewards for their achievements”. Music grades also translate into UCAS points for university applications!

I have an excellent track record of supporting students of all ages through formal qualifications including ABRSM grades (often with merits & distinctions), the performance elements of GCSE & A Level Music, and auditions for further education entrance/scholarships.

Performance Opportunities

All of my students have the opportunity to take part in our AMH Music Concerts. These events allow them to practise their performance and ensemble skills, meet others with similar interests, and share and celebrate their achievements with their friends and families.

I also support many of my students in a wide variety of other opportunities throughout Sheffield, Yorkshire, and the UK. From church bands to national competitions and leading West End roles, I am delighted to inspire a wonderful variety of musical journeys!
