Katy offers professional coaching on a one to one basis covering singing techniques, music theory, songwriting lessons and with over 10 years experience in coaching singers, Katy is able to pass on her passion and dedication to singing while helping her students achieve their desired goals within the music industry.
Katy specialises in vocal development, performance techniques and vocal exams for all ages and abilities in a one to one setting in her Chelmsford studio. Students are often given the chance to sing live at many local events as well as special opportunities to work with TV shows such as The Voice and X Factor and even build a YouTube channel with the help of Katy's professional video production.
Singing lessons are often a daunting thought but it is just like learning any other skill, it requires practice and patience. There is no need to be nervous when considering Katy as a vocal coach, nerves are a natural part of singing and once you gain some vocal knowledge your confidence will gradually start to flourish. Throughout your singing lessons you will learn about vocal biology and development and can even under go exams to gain recognition and confidence in your ability.
Katy is a very relaxed singing teacher and likes to make her lessons enjoyable and informative, while pushing her students to make the most out of their talent. Katy is often encouraging students to write their own songs, or create vocal covers on YouTube to help build confidence and an online presence with the aim of becoming a professional singer either as an artist, session singer or in the function sector.
Understanding music theory is not necessary for singing lessons, however Katy likes to encourage her singers to aim to understand the basics in order to best communicate musically. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced music theory student, Katy can help you learn or enhance your music theory skills. She can take you through your theory exams, get you reading music fluently and understanding the theory for GCSE, A-LEVELS, DEGREES, or even just for your own information and confidence.
Singing lessons will take place in a fully equipped singing studio which is based in Springfield, Chelmsford. The studio is part of Havengore Shops and offers free parking as well as other local amenities.

I look forward to taking all the incredible advice on board and practicing the new techniques these vocal masters have kindly shared.
