As a child I always adored singing and I began receiving vocal tuition in my early teens.  I loved it so much and so I decided to take a path that I believed would lead me to become an opera singer.  I studied a degree in Music at Edinburgh Napier University and then a two-year post-graduate course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where I attained a Master of Music specialising in classical singing and opera.

During this rigorous training I was incredibly self-doubting, very self-critical, perfectionist, tense, and anxious.  I wore myself out trying to prove to myself that I was good enough and worthwhile.  I had lost all connection to what really matters in music, singing and any art form, and that is honest expression.

Sometimes you need to find out what you really don’t want in order to find real treasure!

Since these times I have been on such a journey of personal growth that I barely recognise the person that I was.  My whole approach to singing has also completely transformed.  I now value, more than anything, the freedom to be as I am without any limits, and the same goes for vocal expression.  We all have the right to express what we feel in the way that we want, and I cannot think of a more beautiful and fulfilling way to do it than through my own unique instrument!

For the last few years I have been teaching singing to children and adults, focusing on building confidence, self-esteem and self-awareness.  I truly believe that vocal expression and creativity can be a wonderful, transformational tool to personal freedom!
