About SE9 Singing, Guitar & Bass

For any musician or singer, the thrill of performing well, especially in front of an audience is something special. And if you have such aspirations of carving a career in music, or just want to have a great hobby, I would be delighted to help you on your journey. I am passionate about all forms of music, and alongside my performance career, I teach private opera and classical singing lessons. Whether you want to learn to play the guitar, improve your vocal skills or dive in deep to learn more about musical concepts, I can guide you. I teach all ages and abilities, and my special focus is on students that would like to learn singing alongside guitar, bass or keyboard. Such tuition can be very useful for singer/songwriters or those who are already in a band, and wish to become a singer guitarist or bassist. I have comprehensive music theory knowledge and experience in how to approach and arrange backing vocals. My professional career now spans 35 years, and I have appeared in 94 different roles in 140 productions around the UK, Europe and Australia. I have performed hundreds of oratorio and recital concerts (including over 40 appearances as a soloist at the Royal Albert Hall). Working with some of the finest teachers and coaches in the world, I have studied bel canto technique, languages, musicianship, acting, movement and stagecraft as well as performed alongside some of the greatest opera stars alive, and worked under celebrated conductors and directors. If you’re keen on the guitar, I will teach you to master guitar or bass and fully immerse yourself in the music. I mainly teach rock and pop styles, but initially trained as a classical player, and have a strong knowledge of jazz chords and theory. And if you’re interested in fine-tuning your singing skills, you will learn about vocal technique, musicianship, languages, stagecraft and professional etiquette. I offer not just my musical knowledge and training but special insight and tips on how to stand out and perform with confidence and flair. Classes are in my garden studio in Eltham, London, and I offer an encouraging environment along with engaging lessons that not only will hone your skills but also inspire you. With 25 years of teaching students from diverse backgrounds and levels, I find it a rewarding experience watching my students blossom into impressive musicians and look forward to doing the same with you.

Bianca G.'s review on Oct 06, 2020

Working with Grant over the past 3 years has been fantastic. He has gone above and beyond to help me in my operatic training by not only teaching vocal technique but also assisting and coaching me in languages, theory and acting skills. Through these lessons I was able to study singing intensively to the point where I was able to get onto an MA Music degree having not studied music previously. His passion for music is contagious and his depth of knowledge is incredible. I would highly recommend working with Grant.

Nicholas G.'s review on Oct 05, 2020

I have been a singing pupil of Grant for over 7 years. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He has a vast knowledge of the subject of classical singing and combines a friendly and flexible manner with a rigorous approach to technique which is always inspiring. He is also generous with his time and the fact that he is a working international professional opera singer provides a holistic learning framework that magnifies the value of every lesson.


Bass Guitar Lessons
Catherine M.'s review on Sep 25, 2020

Grant has been teaching my 10 year old daughter bass guitar (and music theory) for approximately 18 months, in a lovely studio at his home. We have a regular weekly slot, but Grant is flexible when we need to re-arrange occasionally around other commitments. Grant is an engaging teacher, who plans varied and interesting lessons which my daughter enjoys immensely. Highly recommend!

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
I offer a loyalty discount of 10% off when you book a block of 10 lessons.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
I start with a free 15 minute consultation session, best done over Zoom, Facetime or WhatsApp. The first actual lesson can be a bit longer than usual (for no extra charge), as we need time to chat and set out your goals and needs. Then I can begin to plan your lessons in advance.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I have been a professional musician all my life. I began my musical education at 8 singing in choirs and in stage productions, taking up the guitar and flute at the age of 12. I went to University as a flute major, then change to classical singing in my 2nd year. All the while I continued my "other" career as a singer/guitarist and keyboardist in busy cover and function bands. I came to London on a scholarship to the Royal College of Music and now enjoy an established career in opera throughout the UK, Europe and Australia. I have taught guitar, bass guitar, flute, clarinet and keyboard, and worked as a choir conductor, arranger, session musician and sound engineer/producer. I currently gig regularly as a bassist and vocalist.
