What do I offer?
An hour private complimentary consultation, giving us the chance to assess your level and needs together.
Thereafter, singing lessons are an hour long, and take place at my home in Highgate, North London.
All levels and styles are welcome, and I will gladly prepare people for academic institutions entrance exams, competitions and auditions, acting and musical theatre school entrance conditions, recordings and performances, from complete beginners to professionals.
In addition I offer my students performance technique workshops and organise student concerts.
What are my mottos?
I believe that no matter what level and aspirations you have, my work is to teach a solid technique, the understanding of breath control and sound projection, in such a way that it will meet your personal, vocal and musical needs.
Therefore my aim is to provide each person who comes to me with the attention and care that will allow them to develop these qualities, and will help them facilitate a natural connection between the voice and music making.
What are my credentials?
I have taught many singers, dancers and actors over the last 24 years in London, Paris and Madrid, and I am the artistic director of Opera & More, and founder and former artistic director of the Madrid Opera Studio.
I hold an Associate Diploma in singing and teaching singing from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I have studied singing for 20 years with the late Vera Rozsa OBE, teacher of such singers as Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Sarah Walker, Sir Thomas Allan and Karita Mattila amongst many. I have released a solo CD with Meridian Records, performed with many Opera companies and Orchestras and given recitals in the UK, Spain, France, Israel and the US.
