I am a piano player and started taking singing lessons with Simon because I was looking for some vocal coaching - not only to improve my singing voice and confidence on stage, but also to learn the techniques that would prevent me burning my voice out after only a few numbers. Simon has an operatic background and is an experienced performer - since working with Simon not only has my voice improved and strengthened, but I have also learnt a lot about the technical art of singing and the human voice. Thanks to Simon's teaching I find I am more relaxed on stage, and I am finding it easier to tackle songs that I previously thought were in keys that were too high for me. Lessons are relaxed and we have fun working together. Simon is well studied and passionate about teaching and sharing his knowledge - he personally strives to give students every opportunity to improve and achieve. At Fine Voice students get the opportunity (if desired) to take part and perform in external events and performances outside of lessons, and also attend the chorus groups and choirs that Fine Voice runs. Whatever style of music you are interested in singing, or whether you are interested in doing exams, singing for pleasure, or professional coaching I would recommed Fine Voice Singers Academy.
