What students say about my singing lessons
Each time I take on a new student I feel privileged to be part of their journey as it gives me great pleasure to hear their voice develop and gain confidence. Many of my students have become friends and keep me updated with their career.
"I was very fortunate to have Daniel as my singing teacher throughout secondary school. He was instrumental in giving me the foundations of a strong vocal technique and performance skills whilst making every lesson informative and enjoyable. His broad knowledge of repertoire from classical singing to modern musical theatre fed my passion for performing, which led me to gaining a place at my dream drama school, ArtsEd, and currently pursuing a career in Musical Theatre in The West End."
"My first singing lesson was with Daniel when I was 16 and he has been an invaluable support for my career ever since. Daniel has an impressive knowledge of the voice and an ability to teach technique in an uncomplicated and exciting way. I was incredibly impatient when I first started singing - I wanted to be able to sing everything that very minute. Daniel taught me there are no tricks or shortcuts to developing a sustainable, healthy voice and many years on I am grateful I stuck at it. When I have a lesson with Daniel I am reminded of the joy of singing and I have him to thank for any singing roles I get to play."
"It is rare to find a teacher who, not only has an established career in the performing business, but also has an incredible flair for teaching. In Daniel, I found both. His knowledge of both opera and musical theatre provide the perfect match for any student who wants to unlock all facets of their voice. Daniel nurtures each individual talent, enabling them to access their full potential and beyond. He is such an exuberant, passionate teacher and provides exciting and challenging lessons week after week.
I am where I am because of the fantastic tools Daniel gave me, enabling me to tackle any vocal challenge I meet in this tough business, and, after 3 years of drama school training, still use his techniques when I perform today."
All my students leave Secondary education with Grade 8 singing making a stronger application for university and a few students also go on to take a diploma gaining ATCL or dipABRSM. I am also very proud to have worked with students that have gone on to study music or musical theatre as a diploma or degree at colleges including Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Royal Northern College of Music, Royal Academy of Music, Arts Educational College, Guildford School of Acting and Doreen Bird College
