Private Vocal Tuition & Recording with Polly (one-to-one or small groups)
Would you like singing lessons but don't fancy learning in a large group? Do you have specific vocal issues that you'd like to target? Are you working towards an exam, gig or recording session? Polly runs a busy private teaching practice in Leeds and welcomes students from age 8 upwards of any ability (younger students occasionally considered depending on their voice, concentration ability, or if it is audition prep). She currently teaches a real mix of complete beginners to seasoned pros spanning from primary aged children to grandparents.
Polly teaches rock, pop, folk, musical theatre, jazz and classical singing and puts those students who wish to through ABRSM Classical, LCM & LAMDA Musical Theatre, and Rockschool pop vocal exams. She has successfully helped many students through all the grades and a number of her students have gone on to music colleges, musical theatre schools, to front bands and appear on the West End.
Polly spent 7 years as Head of Singing & Musical Director of the Performing Arts course at Cirencester College so has extensive experience prepping students for theatre & drama school auditions, 2 and half years coaching at Wilkes Academy of Performing Arts, and has more recently moved to SLP College in Leeds.
Polly specialises in vocal "problem solving" using her extensive training & knowledge of vocal physiology. She can help you work out why you haven't been able to hit that note, why your voice is hurting, or why you just aren't getting that sound you're after.
You can also learn about ear training, sight singing, music theory, microphone technique, harmonising skills, ad lib/improvisation and basic piano skills if required.
Polly has a high quality home recording set up for recording vocals, piano & guitar. She frequently records her students, the littler students make "singles" as gifts for Mum & Dad, and the more experienced singers use the recordings for their own music promotion.
Recording is also available to non-students. Please call/email for a quote.
TRACK & BACKING TRACK CUTS & EDITING for shows, festivals and concerts.
Polly provides a track editing service for those who need to lengthen, shorten, chop sections out or fuse together multiple tracks. This is also available to non-students. Please call/email for a quote.
