I’ve had many years of experience as a professional musician and worked on a variety of projects as a singer. This spans from session singing (including touring Japan with Soul Legends Incognito) guest vocals for various acts (including a track on Ministry Of Sound: Addicted To Bass), sample packs, syncs, and radio beds as well as original projects which have had significant airplay and online buzz over previous years.
I will do my very best to be flexible around your schedule and find a slot which suits you best, and can also reschedule if given appropriate notice as I do have a 48 hour cancellation policy.

In lessons we'll focus on these areas and more:
When singing you need to breathe more efficiently than when speaking. Engaging the diaphragm will help you control your voice better, and allow you to sing with more power. The control of your vocal cord closure will unlock your true vocal power. The concept it really quite simple, however it will take focused practice to understand
There are two main vocal registers - chest voice, which is your speaking voice. And head voice, which is the higher and weaker/breathier (not for long!) part of your voice. Along with these two registers, we also have a part in the middle which uses a blend of these two parts of your voice. This is called mixed voice and is usually the most misunderstood and difficult part of your voice to sing in. With the mixed voice, it's all about controlling the balance between your two registers. If your head voice isn't strong enough to balance out your chest voice then you will find yourself out of balance, which can cause a multitude of problems.
Beginners regularly sing with excessive breath. It can be helpful to think of your singing voice as the same mechanism as your speaking voice (because it is!). I like to begin this with staccato Aah exercise as this will teach your vocal cords to stay nice and tight. This will lead to a radical change to how full and powerful your voice feels.
