Successful Masterclass

The masterclass in Guildford on June 4th was a huge success. We had some wonderful young singers, a real mix of ages and musical genres. Here are some of the comments:

“I just wanted to says a huge thank-you for Sunday; I really loved the day and found it so stimulating and useful.
It was lovely also to meet other teachers……I’m realising what an isolated job this can be. I’ve already started trying out some of the techniques this week, to great effect!”
“Would definitely love to see another masterclass – really useful experience.”
“Very many thanks indeed for the wonderful masterclass yesterday. Both L and I could not have enjoyed it more.
Much has been learnt and to see all that wonderful young talent has been simply magical.”
It looks as if I’ll be doing another one next year – watch this space…

Brand New Course in Anatomy

Advanced Anatomy for Voice Professionals 9-11 April 2017

This course is an absolute first in the UK. It is aimed at voice practitioners who already have a working knowledge of anatomy and function but who wish to gain a deeper understanding in order to further their practice. For the three day residential intensive, I am joined by Dr Alan Watson (lecturer in Anatomy at Cardiff University, author of ‘The Biology of Musical Performance’) and Declan Costello (ENT consultant and Voice expert). You can either attend the residential course as a standalone option or pursue full certification.
