FAQs

Here are a collection of my most frequently asked questions. You may find the answer you are looking for. If not, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

What is the best time of day to have a lesson?

It is a myth that you sing better later in the day but you may find you are more hydrated later on, so the best time of day is the time that you are most relaxed. I regularly see clients at 7 am before they head off to work and I’m available from Monday to Saturday from 7 am and I work until 10 pm on a Wednesdays. I am also available for online assessments and lessons work which you can have at a time to suit yourself and in the comfort of your own home.

How can I pay for lessons?

A small, non refundable deposit secures all appointments. You can pay the balance of your session by bank transfer, credit card or in cash on the day.

Do you do gift vouchers?

Yes – I sell vouchers, these can be used for assessment, recording, performance coaching, in person or via Skype/Zoom. Vouchers will be posted out to you (so you can pop them in a card) and have a 12 month expiry.

I'm interested in joining your social singing group, can you tell me more?

Join us! Our small group of lovely singers meet once a fortnight for an hour & get together for a good sing! I coach you to build your confidence up singing in a group, working on harmonies etc – we do recording & work on pop songs…It’s a lot of fun and a great way to relax/get fit doing something you enjoy, while making new friends. No experience is necessary, there’s no minimum standard and no audition. It’s a lovely thing to be part of.

Tell me about your Voicework group?

There is such a lot of nonsense on the internet and especially on Facebook and I wanted to create a beautiful safe space for all voice users to come together. This has become a kind and supportive community on Facebook, where we share ideas, give advice, share tips, give feedback on your videos. There are regular giveaways and I host live question and answer sessions. It is a place for networking and for job opportunities. Many people are becoming friends from all over the world. It’s free to join and it’s wonderful – join us https://www.facebook.com/groups/voiceworkgroup/

With so many teachers out there why should I choose you?

The most important thing in finding a teacher is to find someone you are completely comfortable with who completely ‘gets you’ as a singer, as an artist and as a person. We know it’s not easy to sing in front of a stranger so I want you to feel at your most relaxed straight away

We have fun….the atmosphere is relaxed and we are incredibly productive. As a voice teacher, I work in speech as well as song, I regularly coach for E.N.T & respiratory consultants in a rehabilitation capacity. I am one of the most experienced coaches in the country, often called upon to comment on singers in the media. I’m a regular on both radio and TV.
Performing professionally since the age of 7, I have a unique range of experiences to draw upon from working in West End theatre to touring with a rock band to working in studio as a session singer. I have energy and passion and basically simply love what I do!

What if I'm not good enough?

I believe everyone can sing & there are varying degrees of natural ability. I have assessed literally hundreds of singers & virtually all of them will be much better than they think they are.
I haven’t had singing lessons before because I like my voice and I don’t want to change it.
A great many of my students are signed artistes who are hired for their distinctive vocal style. Why would I want to change your voice? It is YOU…Your personality, your genes, who YOU are. It is about being the best YOU can be, helping you achieve your goals, your dreams. What I do, is to give you the technical skills and inner resources which give you the freedom to communicate your soul!

How often will I need lessons with you?

I believe in quality not quantity. You could have a breakthrough after just an hour – My intensive technique produces dramatic results in a short space of time. You have sessions when you want them.

It says you are also an NLP practitioner - what is that?

Unleash the best version of yourself upon the stage…indeed the WORLD , with a dedicated confidence coaching session infused with NLP magic.
I like to think of NLP as an understanding of the way the wind works – it provides people with stunning tools and resources which are literally life changing. For my singers it makes me a highly effective coach and gifted in achieving dramatic results quickly, providing singers with a tool box of skills they can use to overcome nerves, boost confidence, lyric recall etc. The possibilities are as exciting as they are endless!

Will I be able to use your recording studio?

Yes. We regard experience of being in a recording studio as an integral part of being a singer in today’s industry. Every singer will have the opportunity to record lead, backing vocals, learning studio technique and etiquette. From recording clips for a show reel to a full album, our facilities have recorded some of the most famous voices in the world.

Where are you based?

We are conveniently situated near bus and train stations in Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, UK, and within easy access of Junctions 15 and 16 of the M6. The studio itself is beautiful, purpose built, light, clean & modern with easy parking.

It's been another incredible week in the studio, with clients travelling in from all over Britain & I've coached online clients in Solihull, Cornwall & America! I've assessed a singer for a label, made a couple of amazing voice showreels, talked a lot a bout reflux & have helped singers get their voices where they want to be for Christmas & beyond. Blessed & thankful to every one of my wonderful singers/speakers/actors/lecturers...🙏🌟💓 ... See MoreSee Less
