Welcome to my Singing Teaching Practice!

I  am an experienced independent singing teacher and vocal coach and I help professional, amateur and aspiring teenage singers in classical, musical theatre and other genres. I offer sessions online, in my studio and (pandemic permitting) in a flexible mix of both, tailored to your needs.

I enjoy cross-training singers in traditional and contemporary singing techniques, combining elements from my past classical training with continued exploration of musical theatre techniques and my experience of complimentary disciplines and therapies.

Singers present and past are working in the West End, on cruise ships and in operatic companies, are singing in bands, in local and regional musical societies, are members of national youth choirs and achieve success in auditions, national competitions, local festivals and performance examinations.

ONLINE SINGING LESSONS ARE AVAILABLE VIA ZOOM please contact me for information on jtsingingstudio@aol.com 

I coach singers for professional  auditions, entry to post-graduate and undergraduate courses at music conservatoires, musical theatre colleges, and vocal diplomas and graduation recitals, competitive Festivals, performances and music/musical theatre exams.

I work with and mentor singing teachers who train choirs and work in Performing Arts schools and Music Hubs.

                                   

I am an alumna of City University, the Royal Academy of Music and the University of West London

I am a Fellow Member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians,  also a member of NATS, and most recently the Musical Theatre Educators Alliance MTEA in the US.

I am the Artistic Director at the JTPTrust (www.jtptrust.org) a vocal educational charity based in Swindon, Wiltshire which reaches out to hundreds of aspiring young singers, and for whom I have co-ordinated numerous productions and operatic works.

I am the past Chair and present Conference Director of the Association of Teachers of Singing  also a member of the AOTOS programme planning and teacher development sub-committees.

I have spoken on the topics of young developing voices at AOTOS, for the BVA, at AICI in Italy and for EVTA, Eurovox in 2012.
