Interested in singing lessons? You’ve come to the right place!
Discover Singing offers online and in-person lessons for singers of all ages and all stages, across a range of styles.
New to singing?
Let’s start at the very beginning, it’s a very good place to start!
That means simple technique exercises to get your breath and sound working together. We’ll play some musical games that will start you on a journey towards learning staff notation. You’ll also learn lots of repertoire from fun beginners songs and musical theatre to Western art music and more.
Or more experienced?
If you’ve had lessons before, we will build on the skills you already have. Whatever your level, we will work on musicianship and aural skills too. That means part singing, working with notation through solfa, understanding harmony, and exploring riffing/ornamentation and vocal improvisation. We will choose your repertoire and studies together, drawing from a diverse range of composers and sources so you can sing your favourites, and discover new songs and styles.
You can choose to support your learning through formal exams, performances or work towards auditions, or you can, of course, just sing for pleasure.
What makes Discover Singing special?
Here, we know that singing isn’t just about the song. All teaching has a focus on holistic well-being. We will work together on posture, breathing and mindfulness as well as the mechanics of singing.
Every lesson is underpinned by the latest in voice science. You can be sure your voice will be looked after and you will know how to care for it too.
No one is too young, too old or too “unmusical” to start lessons. For children, find out more about how I work with young singers.

Ready for lessons?
Once you have signed up, I will either be in touch to offer you a consultation lesson at a time suitable for you or we will confirm you have a space on the waiting list
At the consultation lesson, we will go through the terms and conditions of lessons and complete a student information questionnaire. You will be able to share a bit about what you want to achieve by taking lessons and we’ll chat about what kind of commitment it takes to get there. Then we’ll do a bit of singing/vocal exploration. Don’t be scared, it’s really simple and just to give me an idea of where we will start.
