Teaching Experience


I have been a vocal coach since 2014 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have a range of clients from corporate business professionals who wish to improve in public speaking and gain confidence, professional vocalists prepping them for auditions as well as increasing their rep and children who wish to pursue singing in a traditional grade style fashion.
I always incorporate a holistic approach and encourage that all my students transfer the skills they use within the sessions to other areas of life. I have seen my clients grow in confidence, be able to speak their truth, obtain their vocal goals and leave my lessons feeling empowered and joyful. I have moved my practice from London to Oxford, and I teach online. I believe everyone has the ability to sing and speak publically, and I feel they can with the right guidance. I am very keen to make sure my practice is based on well-being, as emotional freedom and vocal freedom are one and the same.
