Check out Master D in his singing lesson last night. He was given this song last week and he is doing great… what an achievement at the age of 4!!!

10/01/2022

Face to face lessons are continuing as normal but can I ask for all pupils (no matter of age) & parents/carer to arrive wearing a mask, these can be removed once in the music room. Also if accompanying a pupil can we keep it to one Parent/Carer only.

Please use the hand sanitiser provided (or your own) before entering the premises.

Please do not attend if you have Covid Symptoms or are awaiting results, lessons will automatically be moved to Online to accommodate you.

Thank you for your cooperation,
Phaedra

Fun Fact:

Over a hundred muscles in your body work together for you to sing. They include the muscle of the tongue, lips, neck, chest, jaw, and abdomen (to name a few!) 👌🏻

So keep fit by singing!! 😉

Wednesday Fun Fact:

Less than 2 percent of the worlds people are tone deaf. If you are, it usually happens from a high childhood fever. However if you cringe when you hear a singer miss notes, or can’t endure a bad violin player, then you are not tone deaf…. You just require some work putting together your ear with you vocal chords….. so book a singing lesson 😆😉

Did you know that when we’re singing, sound comes out of our mouths at around 750 miles per hour!

Today is world Menopause day… did you realise the menopause has a direct effect on the vocal mechanism?

Estrogen deprivation causes substantial changes in the mucous membranes that line the vocal tract. As levels decrease, laryngeal tissues begins to absorb water causing vocal folds to swell, blood vessels to become enlarged, and vocal fold mass to increase. You may see/feel/hear a decrease in vocal flexibility, vocal range, hoarseness or a ‘breathy’ tone, along with a slight decline in respiratory function.

Changes in the voice can be dramatic for some and not for others.

Don’t let this scare you, whilst these changes happen it doesn’t mean it’s the end of your singing career. Just that care and attention to vocal technique is required.

So, keep singing, after all the act releases Endorphins and Oxytocin… those Happy Hormones we love so much! 😉🥰🎤🎶🎵

16/10/2021

Here’s a nice fact for you: Did you know your vocal folds are the most unique musical instrument to exist?

One of the world's leading voice scientists, Ingo Titze suggests it would be virtually impossible to create an instrument that can be as flexible, vibrate and elongate the way the human vocal folds do.

If that’s not perfection… what is?

Today is Young Minds Mental health day… in my opinion this should be everyday. Check in with your little/big ones, with your friends/family and remind them that you have their back.

There are lots of groups out there if you need help or support.
www.youngminds.org.uk is just one of the many organisations to help support you or someone you love.

Let’s all be kind and have time to listen to others.

Today I’ve been teaching some lovely Nina Simone, such a beautiful voice and a strong female.
Go and put one of her songs on and have a listen…

Congratulations to everyone picking up their GCSE results today… I know you all have worked so hard and your results will have shown that. Keep aiming for the stars! X

10/08/2021

Wishing All pupils collecting A-level results the best of luck. Well done for getting through the last 18months +. No matter what grade and what subject, remember the world is your oyster and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

26/07/2021

For those pupils that come for lessons via Goldthorn Hill, Penn, please be advised to pre plan an alternative route as it is closed for the next two weeks.

16/07/2021

Extremely pleased, yet again, with the outstanding results for LCM Music Theatre Exams. My pupils are all amazing, they never fail to sing their heart and soul out…. that’s how they ALL get DISTINCTIONS! Congratulations, I am a very proud Teacher!

04/06/2021

I’m not great at keeping regular posts on this page... mainly due to always being so busy teaching.
I’d like to say how wonderful all pupils have been throughout the pandemic and your continued commitment to keeping up a health vocal routine online!

It’s even better now that we are back to in person “face to face” lessons. This past month has been so amazing seeing you all again and hearing you voices live!

The option for online lessons will now always be there & those that are having them further afield maybe one day we will be able to meet “in person”!

Thank you to everyone and keep up the good work!

So proud of my pupils whom have worked tremendously hard this year (& many years). Reaping the rewards, gaining places at top Vocational Schools to further their Music Theatre training.

This year has been even more challenging having to audition virtually, if you’ve never had to this, it’s extremely hard to preform in your living room to a camera. You have no “audience” connection or atmosphere that you would usually get in an audition. Not only did they have to do this once, but also twice and in some instances 3 times, with recalls.
But now the offers are coming in fast and strong & still more to come! Did I mention I am extremely proud?!? 🥳❤️
