I tutor on a 3-day residential course called 'Singing The Story.'

The aim of this work-in-progress course is two-fold - to teach and enhance the technical skills required in singing and to offer strategies for use when working on communicating the meaning and emotion of a song or aria.

Students study technique within individual lessons and/or small group sessions.  There are also group workshops and master classes which focus on many aspects of performance: technique, phrasing, breathing, text work.  Our aim is that students work at their own pace in a safe, supportive, fun environment and leave at the end of the course with new ideas and inspiration.

shelsleyCourses are held in Shelsley Beauchamp, Worcestershire, a tiny village surrounded by beautiful countryside, which provides a very peaceful setting.  Breakfast, lunch, supper, tea and coffee are provided, all food is home cooked and prepared fresh each day (individual dietary requirements can be catered for).  Accommodation can be arranged locally on request.

If you are over 17 years old (no upper age limit!) and are aiming for a career in music theatre / opera, need help with your audition technique, or if you are a seasoned amateur keen to advance your skills, then this is the course for you.

I also tutor on the same course in Goole for Yorkshire Singing Courses run by the highly talented Jenny Read.... and for those who are not sure they want to leap into the deep end immediately, we run a 'Can't Sing, Daren't Sing' course.  For more information, go to www.yorkshiresingingcourses.co.uk



dramaDrama Coaching
I offer coaching on a one-to-one basis to anyone wishing to practice their skills for drama school auditions or anyone seeking help with communicating emotion through a song or monologue.  These sessions take place at my home in Guildford or, on payment of travelling expenses, at a mutually agreed venue.


 pack activitySeeds of Hope Bereavement Workshops

Together with Unity Dale, creative therapist and counsellor, I run one-day workshops for professionals and volunteers working with children and young people who have suffered loss.  The aim of the workshop is to use creative activities based on those in the Seeds of Hope Bereavement & Loss Activity Book to explore the meaning and implications of loss for ourselves and others.
