I teach classical singing and opera in central London, to adults and children of all abilities. I am a member of the British Voice Association, and have taught singing for over ten years.

Lessons take place at Jaques Samuel Pianos, 142 Edgware Road, London, W2 2DZ. 
Local transport links are excellent:
The nearest London Underground stations are Edgware Road and Marble Arch
Buses include 6, 7, 15, 16, 23, 36, 98, 414, 436

My teaching covers all aspects of classical singing, including posture, breathing, vocal range, tone quality, language skills and interpretation of the music itself. I strongly believe in a tailor-made and holistic approach to teaching which, while covering the above points in detail, never neglects the overall picture of singing as a communicative and enjoyable art-form.

Whatever your experience of singing, you are more than welcome to contact me and make an enquiry. I teach students of all abilities, from absolute beginners to those at an advanced level, and I pride myself on providing a service which is second to none at a reasonable rate. I am enhanced CRB checked.

I am an international opera and classical singer, with a wealth of experience on the current performing circuit. As a singing student, you would benefit from my wide-ranging and up-to-date approach to teaching, which has developed over the years in the context of a busy career.

ABOUT THE LESSONS: Singing Lessons London

It's important that lessons are tailored to the needs of each individual. As such, I will ask you about your singing background during the consultation lesson, as well as what you hope to achieve through taking lessons. Each student has their own goals, and I will do my utmost to help you reach them. I operate in a friendly and informal teaching environment, which encourages students not only to improve more rapidly, but also enjoy the entire process.

Why learn to sing?

There are so many benefits in learning to sing. You will develop your voice to its full potential, allowing you to sing a wide variety of repertoire, from opera to songs and everything in between. Your general musicianship will improve, as will your knowledge of music as a whole. If you are a member of a choir, you will develop the confidence to lead your section and sing with expression and full commitment.

Whatever your goals, improving your singing is a truly rewarding experience.


Lessons last 1 hour and cost £50.

Please note that you must give at least 24 hours' notice to cancel a lesson, otherwise the lesson is payable in full.


Do you teach students of all abilities?
Yes! Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced level singer, I am here to help you improve and fulfil your potential.

How much do you charge for lessons?
A 1-hour lesson costs £50.

Which payment methods do you accept?
I accept cheques or cash on the day, whatever is easiest for you.

Why should I take lessons with you?
I taught my first student in 2003, and since then I have taught singing in a variety of contexts, based around my professional singing schedule.

Working on the professional circuit as a classical operatic and concert baritone, I am constantly singing with the world's best professional musicians. It is this unique and incredibly valuable experience that I bring to my teaching methods. I have seen, heard, and worked with hundreds of professional singers, which has given me a deep understanding of healthy vocal technique. More than that, I can help you develop your musicianship and overall appreciation of the art.

What are your qualifications?
I have a Diploma in Vocal Teaching from the ABRSM, which I achieved with Distinction.
I completed a degree in music at the University of Birmingham - BMus (Hons) - and I have two post-graduate diplomas from The Royal College of Music in London. I also hold the Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music (LRSM), also with distinction. As a student I studied at two international opera studios, in Gent, Belgium and Zurich, Switzerland. I am trained in rock and pop singing, having done Rockschool exams.

I would like to sing. Am I too old to learn?
Of course not! Many people discover their voice at a later stage in life, and sing for pure enjoyment, as well as making significant vocal improvements too! It's never too late to start.

Do you teach music theory?
Yes. This can be incorporated into a lesson, or added on at the end. For example, 1 hour of singing, 30 minutes of theory.

Do I really need a singing teacher? Can't I just teach myself?
I can't stress enough the importance of getting yourself a good teacher. This is especially true with singing, as your instrument comes from within, so you never objectively hear it outside your own body. Having someone help you make improvements is the quickest way to fulfilling your singing vocal potential.

Can I hear you sing?
