Biography: Having been Head of Music for English National Opera, Director of Opera for the Royal Academy of Music in London and Associate Music Director for Opera Australia, I have a wide experience of coaching Opera, Lieder and Song. I am used to working online and often send accompaniment recordings via Dropbox. I live in London but will accommodate time differences. I have worked with many famous singers and can pass on useful tips in the art of performing, learning and memorising music.
I am experienced in coaching all styles of classical music, and can help those who are about to launch themselves onto the world stage as a professional singer and those who are already established. I have written ‘The Art of Auditioning’ and the book is published by Edition Peters. This gives a guide on how to tackle this thorny subject, which cannot be avoided! Together with Mary King, I have also written ‘The Singer’s Handbook, a Guide for Aspiring Singers’, published by Faber Music.
