What’s your favourite thing about teaching singing?
Watching a person gain confidence in their voice when they begin to trust themselves. Also I’m continually learning about my own voice through teaching!
What is the first thing you do to warm up?
Low ‘mmms’, like I’m eating ice cream!
What is a common challenge you see in singers?
Too much self awareness. Sometimes we need to make silly sounds and jump around a bit to access new areas of our voice. You won’t look half as silly as me doing it!
How do you approach audition nerves?
BREATHE! And remember the panel want you to do well. Focus on you and what you’re doing and never worry about the other auditionees!
Is there one singing technique that changed your life?
Mix belt... suddenly I don’t have 2 separate voices (low and high) but one continuous ‘rainbow of sound’ as I was taught!
Which is your favourite vowel to sing on and why?
Eeeeee... it can ring for days, like a bell.
Which singer do you admire the most and why?
So many. Maria Callas, Ella Fitzgerald, Jessie J.
