I have suspended my in person teaching practice because of the virus lockdown - but please send me an email if you may be interested in lessons when the lockdown is lifted. I am using Zoom for students with remote lessons as a temporary gap filler - not as good as in person but useful in the meantime.
I'm currently having trouble with some emails sent to me (especially from gmail and btinternet)- my replies sometimes get put in your spam folder - if you get no reply to your enquiry within a few hours then CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER and/or call me on 01483 767124
Hi. I teach all styles of singing - both classical bel canto (for opera and Lieder) and more popular styles (for music theatre, pop and rock).
I tutor advanced singers with preparation for music theatre or opera auditions and roles. I also assist with preparation for examinations or work to fix individual vocal or performance problems.
I'm very pleased also to welcome adult beginners to the wonderful world of singing. I do teach under 16s but they will need to be accompanied by a parent.
I also work with students to modify accents, especially English for non-English native speakers, and help with public speaking and vocal delivery for actors.
Joe has taught singing privately for twenty years. Fees are currently 32 pounds for a one hour lesson for adults and 25 pounds for a 45 minute lesson for students and young people.
