Lessons for Children
 
Sharon is a qualified teacher (QTS) and has been teaching singing and performance since 1999. 

PLEASE NOTE: It's not good practice to give vocal training to children under the age of 14 years, as vocal training involves the development of muscles - so just as you wouldn't send your child to develop their muscles on weight machines in the gym, bear in mind that it's best to wait to develop the muscles they use for singing, otherwise the voice can be damaged permanently.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE:  it's not financially viable for me to come to your house to teach.  In the time it would take me travelling to and fro, I could be teaching other students.
............so what is available for children?

Individual Lessons: While I don't give vocal training to children, in practice, this simply means that I don't correct children's breathing technique. I'm very happy, however, to help children to enjoy singing in a number of fun ways and to help them improve their expression, diction and anything else they need help with.  Individual lessons include:

§ helping children to improve their confidence about singing and to explore what suits their voices.

§ helping children to learn how to prepare a song so that they can perform to the best of their ability.

§ singing different types of songs (repertoire) eg. character songs such as "Under the Sea" or "Hakuna Matata", traditional folk songs such as Scarborough Fair as well as popular songs that they enjoy singing eg. Taylor Swift and One Direction are popular right now, as well as of course Disney films like "Frozen"!

§ learning to sing in harmony if possible, which is a great help for children who haven't done this before, as it helps them to develop their ability in this area.

§ improving diction so that lyrics are clear when sung

§ preparing children for school productions - with terrific results!

§ preparing children for auditions

If you'd like to ring me and discuss your needs or even if you're not sure what would be suitable, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
