Vocal Warm Up For Busy Singers
Make the most of your time with this quick effective warm up that can be done anywhere at any time.
I am originally from London, England and have what I would like to call a fairly rich musical background. I grew up surrounded by music primarily, classic rock with close ties to bands such as Deep Purple, The Who and The Spencer Davis Group. My family home was in fact a recording studio where many of these bands and associated artists would frequently be seen recording or visiting.
I always knew music would be a big part of my life, and began pursuing as much knowledge on the subject as I could at an early age.
After taking ”regular” singing, piano and guitar lessons, I was enthusiastic to learn more about my voice so I could apply the techniques to the styles I was more passionate about. As a teenager, I struggled with trying to find the right teachers that were willing to teach me how to sing, but not be so rigid and theory focused.
Finally at The London Music School I found my voice. The teachers encouraged creativity, exploration of music and the development of so many different skills that some of the more theoretical and overly structured teachers refused to go near.
After graduation I started teaching workshops at the London Music School, and went on to teach in schools, and privately. I also went on to record several albums, as well as provide session vocals for The Rolling Stone’s “Symphonic Stones” and many other collaborations, including a live performance at Abbey Road Studios. I have also performed across the country with various bands and artists. Always on a mission to learn more about singing and the voice, as well as develop her teaching abilities, I traveled to Nashville to train with Brett Manning and more recently Ron Anderson in Los Angeles to further develop my skills. I am currently working on developing my vocal and teaching skills with my amazing mentor Tamara Beatty, the vocal coach on NBCs The Voice.
I am also experienced in vocal production and arrangement for studio and live performance and I love working on location in studio consulting and assisting clients while they record their albums.
My awesome clients include singers of all levels raging from top 20 Canadian recording artists to beginners.
I have over 20 years experience in teaching all ages and experience levels in ALL styles of singing and vocal performance and I can't wait to share my knowledge with you, to help you achieve your vocal goals, quickly, effectively, safely and without spending a total fortune!
