All lessons are conducted either in person, or over video call (FaceTime, Skype etc.) this allows for clients to be coached no matter their schedule or location.
Before devising an effective training program or lesson plans, an initial assessment or "Vocal MOT" is a great place to start. In this hour, we will discuss your background and training, performance experience (if any) and relevant medical history etc. I will then ask you to sing two contrasting songs to be analysed, along with a range of exercises, designed to give me a fuller picture of your vocal strengths and weaknesses.
You will receive both verbal and written feedback via email in the form of an assessment sheet. This is a great no strings attached way to see if you would like ongoing coaching and if we are a good match of coach and client.
All Professional voice users are vocal athletes. For this reason it is vital that their instrument is kept in peak performance condition through coaching and self care. Lessons can be spent refining and optimising technique, working and developing new sounds and effects, or further enhancing pre-existing techniques or skills.
In addition to my voice coaching/performance work, I also direct and produce shows for both the Theatre and Corporate/Leisure industries. As a result of this, I regularly sit on audition panels and am very familiar with what is expected from a performer in an audition situation.
Whether it be a Westend show, National tour or drama school audition, we will work on a host of techniques, ranging from song interpretation to audition etiquette, ensuring you are fully equipped to appear in front of any panel with confidence.
Intensive Schedule Preparation
In the 21st century, performers, now more than ever are expected to be able to deal with rigorous schedules, particularly when on tour where the general wear and tear of the road can have a huge impact on overall/vocal health for those not appropriately equipped to deal with it. In this 2 hour session we will work together to assess your specific needs for your upcoming job and a custom made program will be devised, to help you quickly achieve an increased level of stamina and vocal health at a time it is vital you have it.
Many colleges and universities invite industry professionals to speak and teach at their institutions. Working in both the coaching and performance/casting industry I am able to help students prepare in a variety of ways for a future in performing and am able to offer a unique insight into exactly what casting directors look for in todays fast paced and ever changing industry.
