Teaching Bio:

Hello! My name is Alice and I am a professional vocalist and singing teacher based in Burley, Leeds. I graduated from the University of Leeds in 2015 with a BA music degree. During my time at University I worked with the University Big Band, musically-directed a national award winning A Cappella Group, and vocal coached 5 musicals for the Students' Union. I now perform with a range of musical ensembles in Leeds and also work with producers and writers in Manchester and London.

I teach a wide range of genres and styles, from hip-hop to folk, pop to classical! Singing is a deeply rooted passion of mine, and I think singing of all abilities and ages is a wonderful thing to experience and be part of.

As a singing teacher, I understand that each individual may want lessons for a number of reasons. Whether that be to develop a specific area, learn how to sing - starting at the very beginning (a very good place to start!) or whether you have a specific song you want to focus on. I am here to help you gain the skills and technique you need. Each lesson is individually tailored for you, to help you get the most out of your lessons with me.

I have received vocal training since the age of 9 and have experienced a number of different teaching methods that I am able to apply to my own teaching. With me, you will learn the skills to perform confidently and professionally to the best of your ability within a comfortable and positive environment.

From your first lesson, we will discuss what you want to achieve from your vocal training and build a progressive programme that works best for you. Whether you’d like to focus on scale practice, range building and pitch accuracy or even just perform some of your favourite songs, together we can design a programme that suits your goals.

I honestly believe anyone can sing but it requires the correct support, practice and passion to create a truly talented vocalist. Singing is something very organic and I feel shouldn’t be clouded in rules and regulations. However, with practice and lessons, you will be able to perform to your maximum potential with ease and fluidity.

Whether you are aspiring to be a professional singer or just want to learn how to sing with confidence and for fun, I can design vocal lessons to help you strengthen and develop your voice. I also work with a brilliant team of vocal teachers across Leeds to help provide the right lessons for you. Each provide professional lessons to help you develop your voice safely and correctly, whilst still having fun!
