online & face-to-face lessons

I currently have a full teaching schedule.
Please sign up to the waiting list here

I give singing lessons for all ages and abilities

But note ‘all abilities’ does not mean ‘one size fits all’. Lessons can be structured for:

• beginner (younger children)
I encourage my students to explore and develop their musicality through play, sometimes with a mixture of song, dance and piano

• beginner (older children/adults)
through vocal exercises, warm ups and your favourite songs I cover the foundations of vocal technique and performance

• intermediate & advanced
we take a deeper dive into vocal technique and set our own goals. The aim is to give you the tools to produce the voice you want

• actors/music/drama students
we can work towards a particular song, performance or audition

• grades
from ABRSM, LCM, Trinity or Rockschool – I have a 100% pass rate for my students, the majority of which earn a distinction or merit

But there is always overlap: I have had students keenly interested in the vocal science as a beginner – it’s all up to you! We will often record your songs using my studio-grade equipment to track your progress.

1:1 lessons

Lessons

All 1:1 lessons are held at my home studio in Timperley or online. After a trial lesson you can set up regular weekly lessons via a standing order or pay for one-off lessons on an ad-hoc basis.

(price per lesson)

via standing orderpay-as-you-go
30 minutes£19.25£23
45 minutes£29.25£33
60 minutes£34.25£37

Pay-as-you-go lessons can be purchased in the shop.

Standing order details will be given after your first trial lesson. I will calculate how many lessons you will have in the year (according to the calendar below) and divide this by 12 to arrive at a monthly payment which can be paid by setting up a standing order. There is no long term commitment and lessons can be cancelled at any point with 4 weeks notice. If at any point a student decides to discontinue lessons, a 4 lesson notice is served and the account is balanced.

I’m happy to go through the full arrangement in more detail via email or phone.

Group lessons

I am also offering group lessons on a 2:1 and 3:1 basis at my studio. All will be 60 minutes long and I leave it in my students’ hands to organise the actual group. It’s perfect for siblings or friends!

(price per lesson per student)

2:1 (60 minutes)£22£25
3:1 (60 minutes)£15£17.50

Dates

All lessons will be during the school term (on the dates shown in white/grey on the calendar above). I won’t be teaching during summer holidays, Christmas holidays, half term or bank holidays. However, there will be availability to schedule/continue lessons during the holidays on a first-come first-serve basis. 

Cancelled/rescheduled lessons

I am happy to reschedule a lesson, when given 24+ hours notice. Any less than 24 hours notice this and I will have to ask you to forgo that lesson’s payment. 

Every month there will be a ‘make-up day’ (usually a Sunday) to reschedule these lessons. They are shown in blue on the calendar. Contact me early to check for availability and to avoid disappointment. You cannot carry over a rescheduled lesson to the next school year.

Thanks for your understanding.

Invisible Covid Jump Point

COVID-19 policy

For my face to face lessons, these are the guidelines I will be following:

  1. Please cancel your lesson if you or a member of your household feel unwell, are isolating with symptoms, or are shielding. We can reschedule the lesson after 14 days or I can offer you a full refund.
  2. Contact me if you feel unwell within 5 days after a lesson. 
  3. Contact me if you have someone in your household who has got COVID-19 symptoms within 5 days after the lesson. 
  4. I will contact you if one of my other students has reported to have symptoms after the lesson.
  5. I will provide hand sanitiser for before and after the lesson.
  6. I will wear a mask (and gloves if you wish) 
  7. We will social distance to 1m for all lessons, for piano this may mean we need to take turns on the piano.
  8. By agreeing with this policy I take no liability if you or your household becomes affected with COVID-19 after a lesson.

Showcase

Every year I put on a concert to inspire my students and showcase their progress.

friendly and professional

'Rose is a great teacher, friendly and professional. The lessons are well rounded between technique and singing. Great tips for improving your technique and practice routines which you can do at home. Very flexible, I play guitar and sing and my lessons are tailored around that. Highly recommended if you’re looking to improve your singing!'

I have been blown away with Rose and her approach to teaching.

'As a complete beginner I really didn’t know what to expect, but I have been blown away with Rose and her approach to teaching. Roos has given me a greater appreciation for music and, although I’m only a few lessons in, I’m already improving. The techniques Rose teaches are even helping me with public speaking. Roos has been fantastic and has even convinced me to join her choir, which has been a revelation. I can’t wait for the next lesson.'

In 1 year of lessons Rose has massively developed my technique tone and singing range.

'In 1 year of lessons Rose has massively developed my technique, tone and singing range. She was as determined to get good results as I was and taught me a range of easy exercises that were extremely beneficial and with practice have made me a far more competent and confident singer. Rose is extremely personable and friendly, but also professional. The atmosphere in her lessons is fun but very focused and I would highly recommend her as a singing teacher.'

she significantly improved my singing and helped to build my confidence

'Rose is an excellent teacher. In a very short time, she significantly improved my singing and helped to build my confidence. Her approach of using a combination of breathing exercises, vocal techniques and recordings really worked for me. And importantly, every lesson was also great fun. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for lessons, whether you are a complete beginner (like me) or someone who sings regularly but wants to continue to improve.'
