ABOUT SCHOOL OF CONTEMPORARY VOICE
Welcome to my website. My name is Polly Strange and I am a professional singer & singing teacher. My aim is to educate singers in the real skills needed to carve out their musical future in the modern music business. Whether you're looking for just a bit of fun or have dreams of stardom, the School of Contemporary Voice develops not just the voice, but the all round modern musician- whilst having a lot of fun!
Lessons are open to all aged 8 and above. All abilities and levels of experience from total beginner to seasoned pro are catered for.
I deliver tuition that focusses on:
Well established, physiologically sound modern vocal techniques.
Pop/rock music theory and notation skills.
The development of listening, analytical and interpretational aural skills.
Songwriting & development.
Improvisation/ad lib/riffing skills to create imaginative and individual performers.
Performance skills and confidence building.
Create & singing harmonies.
Creating opportunities to take graded musical exams- although this is optional and is up to the individual.
Recording technique and the opportunities to record within your lessons.
You can also incorporate a some beginner piano skills into your lessons for songwriting & accompaniment. (Please note however that I do not offer tuition to those who just wish to play the piano.)
Singing lessons can also help children's speech & language development; and lyric reading can be excellent reading practice for all children but particularly those who are having difficulties reading or find it stressful- the singing makes them forget that they are reading too!
