"Our relationship with our voice is unique and very personal; Like "body image", many people experience issues, beliefs and feelings relating to their "vocal image" that can be traced back to early years." Heather Maîr Thomas              
What's your singing story?

Everyone has their own relationship with their voice. What's yours? 

  • Told you "can't sing"? 
  • Want to be more relaxed? 
  • Want to improve technical skills/ range/breathing? 
  • Love to be able to sing, afraid to try? 
  • Overcome stage fright? 
  • Want to join a choir - need a boost? 
  • Terrified?
  • Like to improve public speaking? 
  • Want to get into a habit of regular practise?   
  • Need more confidence?
Technique can make an enormous difference to your confidence, helping you overcome your fear, free your voice and enjoy singing.

My Simplified Singing Technique training is suitable for voices of all styles and all standards, from terrified beginners to working professionals.
  
My aim is to offer training that is:
  • Practical
  • Supportive
  • Relaxed
  • Adaptable
  • Informative
  • Non-judgemental
  • Light-hearted
My mission is to help you identify your singing goals, get the best from your voice, and help you enjoy the process - whatever stage you are starting from!

Specialising in training adult voices at all levels,  I can help particularly with confidence issues and performance anxiety, from adult beginners to established performers.

Every voice is unique, and every person has their own individual learning style and experience of their own voice. 

Therefore, my teaching methods/techniques are tailored and adapted to suit the singer, their voice and their goals rather than a rigid adhesion to one particular method. 


I have developed "Simplified Singing Technique" which draws from a combination of practical vocal techniques with various learning methods. This can include elements of visualisation, hypnotherapy, cbt and nlp as appropriate. 

Developed with over 20 years experience and intuition, "Simplified Singing Technique" is an accessible, sensitive method that can be adapted for all styles and levels of singer, and a range of products for individual practice.

It is never too late to start! Contact me today.
