However, whilst I was able to stay in tune and produce a reasonably pleasing sound, I struggled with sustaining notes, breath control, and achieving smooth transitions between my chest, middle and head voice. Back then I obviously didn’t know what the problems were, but I could certainly tell my voice needed coaching.
Singing both intrigued and annoyed me at the same time. I loved how I could sing a melody to accompany the piano, but didn’t like how the sound wasn’t always exactly what I had envisaged in my head. So, to explore the subject of singing mechanics in greater detail, and with the hope to improve the way I used my voice, I joined a local church choir. There, I learnt a lot about important basics such as posture, breathing techniques, pitch, tone, dynamics, and performance, and all of these skills formed a solid and important foundation for all my future singing endeavours.
My adventure with music perhaps never would have begun if it wasn’t for my love of Queen and Freddie Mercury, who had become my ultimate role model in regards to singing and performance. It was my utter fascination with him that inspired me to move to the UK from Poland in 1997.
“Want to learn to sing? Looking to develop vocal confidence? Ready to discover the real potential of your voice? Then you have found yourself in the right place!”–
Since then, I have performed with a number of great bands and musicians and not only developed my vocal skills further but also acquired valuable experience in performance, which I now hope to share with you.
The majority of my singing students take a lesson once a week, with a few taking lessons every other week. The frequency and the length of our lessons are completely up to you. For younger students under 12, I have found that half hour singing lessons each week work best.
All of my lessons are currently half hour slots which cost £20 per lesson.
