Anne calmed me down, gave me confidence, support and encouragement, as well as giving me extremely practical breathing exercises and voice work to do for the short time before the funeral. I do not have, the words to express my relief and gratitude for what Anne was able to achieve.
Voice tuition ... a great way to develop yourself, your voice and your singing ability. Anne's one-to-one sessions are designed to help an adult sing with confidence to encourage joining a group, or a choir, or to develop the art of singing a song solo at family gatherings or at a public event. Whether you are a complete beginner with the "can't sing" notion or an "I can sing but not in front of anyone", to the voice that needs gentle adjustment to achieve more power and stamina, Anne will create a series of one-to-one sessions around the person and the voice.
Teaching philosphy Anne is fascinated with how the body makes vocal sound and its capacity to express deep fear and great joy. In her teaching she touches the voice using movement, breath, sound and text. Working with Anne you will learn how to listen to your own voice, to hear where you need to work with it to express your own individual sound. Focusing on pitch and resonance Anne will work with you to develop these qualities to enhance the tonal quality of your voice.
