Singing Lessons and Vocal Coaching
develop your singing ability
I am a professional singer and singing teacher with 16 years performing experience.
I offer high quality, results-based singing lessons to help you achieve your singing goals quickly and effectively.
I teach total beginners to advanced performers, moving at a pace appropriate for you and your goals.
I specialise in classical technique, but have experience both performing and teaching Jazz, Folk, Musical Theatre, Classical-Crossover and CCM/Popular Genres.
Whether you are wanting to prepare for a performance or exam, or just wanting to develop your vocal ability,
I can help you!
My Singing Teaching Experience
While reading Music at King's College London, I studied operatic singing at the Royal Academy of Music, and then completed a Masters degree in Text and Performance at RADA.
I have developed a well-rounded knowledge of performance and vocal technique and constantly continue my learning, staying up-to date with vocal pedagogy studies.
I have taught in schools across Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, run summer schools and devised community-based workshops. I pride myself on my personable, friendly teaching style - nobody wants a scary teacher!
I have been teaching students of all ages and abilities for several years, many of which have gone on to study Music or Performance in higher education, performed regularly in public, or simply to enjoy singing better, more confidently and safely!
What Happens in a Singing Lesson?
Each lesson will include work on your vocal technique, with clear and concise explanations and exercises, ready to put this into practice in your songs.
Depending on whether you are preparing for an exam, a performance or simply enjoying your singing ability, lessons may also include performance and stage presence awareness, aural and sight-singing training, combating stage nerves and effective song-learning technique.
I have a 100% pass rate of taking students through ABRSM and Trinity exam syllabi from initial grades through Grade 8 in both standard singing and Musical Theatre exams.
My students receive the highest level of support and training through their exam preparation and enter at a time where they are confident in their ability to pass with the highest marks possible.
Where Do My Lessons Take Place?
My singing lessons are delivered in my fully equipped private studio in Thame, Oxfordshire.
My studio is easily accessible by car with free parking, by bus on several major bus routes surrounding Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, and is a short walk from Thame High Street.
It is also a short journey from Haddenham & Thame Parkway train station, accessible from London, Oxford, Birmingham amongst others.
Who Do I Teach?
I teach students of any age, gender and ability. I believe you are never too young or too old to learn how to sing!
I teach either on a one-to-one basis or in small group lessons.
One-to-one lessons offer a more personal and focused approach on your voice and vocal development, and are the most popular option for those looking to progress their vocal ability quickly with thorough, in-depth coaching.
Small group lessons can be beneficial for those who may find the prospect of a one-to-one lesson daunting to begin with, who may wish to progress to one-to-one lessons in the future. We can also work on harmony skills and song arranging, so this is a great option for are also great for siblings/family members!
Free Welcome Session
I offer all new students a FREE 30-minute 'Welcome Session'.
This gives you the chance to discuss all of your queries and goals ahead of your first paid lesson, and allows me to make a personalised plan tailored to you moving forward.
The sessions are held on Zoom and are a great opportunity for us to e-meet each other!
"We are delighted that Zoë teaches our girls.
She is lovely with them and has a very positive attitude especially when they are finding it hard.
Our eldest is feeling more confident about facing her GCSE music too."
"I came back to singing after a very long time away and I couldn't have asked for anyone better to help with that return than Zoë.
She has such a supportive and friendly manner of teaching, and after only 3 lessons I feel so much happier and more confident with my singing.
I look forward to see what will happen over the next months of working with her."
"I have had singing lessons with Zoë for a few months now and I have really loved every single one!
Zoë is extremely talented and clearly knows what she’s doing. She doesn’t only give me the tools I need to sing well, but also educates me on how it all works and why we do certain exercises.
Zoë has made me feel so comfortable in the lessons and given me confidence in myself as a singer. I have progressed so quickly and I have Zoë to thank for it!"
