Katy offers professional coaching on a one to one basis covering singing techniques, music theory, songwriting and much more for novice, intermediate and professional singers, and with over 13 years experience, Katy is able to guide others to achieve their desired goals within the music industry.
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 voice development and can even under go exams to gain recognition and confidence in your ability. 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.
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 her novice students to write their own songs, or create vocal covers on YouTube to help build confidence and online presence.

JOSH BROUGH GETS INTO BERKLEE
Long term student Josh Brough landed a scholarship at the famous Berklee College Of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. It is safe to say that after more than 10 years of working together Josh will be sorely missed but I am so proud to have been part of his incredible journey.
Josh started playing guitar from a very young age and started vocal lessons at the age of 8 where he was encouraged to perform, record and write music. It was very clear from a young age that Josh was made for the music industry and he was highly driven to succeed. Congratulations Josh, We can not wait to see what you do next.
