Piano and Singing Tuition
by Susan Lamont Dip Mus Ed LTCL
MUSIC LESSONS > Singing
People come for singing lessons for various reasons ranging from preparing for an audition, sitting Grade Exams or just to discover whether they can actually sing - not everyone believes they can and some folk are very apprehensive at first, especially adults who were told in childhood not to bother! I love to help a person find their natural voice and learn to use it safely. Some pupils have come to me believing they had no voice have then gone on to join a Choir and described it as a dream come true! I don't use microphones in my lessons but pupils often find lessons help them with their Karaoke!
As with Piano, I use the ABRSM syllabus, which includes a wide range of styles from Classical to Music Theatre, though exams are not essential by any means. I also like to hear pupils' own choice of songs and they can sing to me with a Youtube backing track etc.
