Keren V.'s review on Apr 13, 2021

So grateful to have Sandra as my teacher! With her I’ve been able to gain knowledge on how to use the voice and put into practice through various performances. My repertoire has expanded into genres I never thought I’d be able to pull off, all thanks to Sandra’s encouragement and guidance. Her lessons are always fun with constructive feedback. All in all a brilliant teacher!

Thank you Keren for taking the time to write such a lovely review. It has been an absolute joy exploring not only your voice but the different genres of styles you now sing...from Opera and Lied to Country and Sacred by way of Disney! It is always a joy to hear you at our online concerts and particularly when you sing in Spanish... as one of our audience remarked ‘Always in safe hands with Keren’. Always so gracious and generous....

Marilyn W.'s review on Apr 13, 2021

Sandra is a very friendly, patient and insightful teacher who is easy-going and lots of fun to be taught by! She has an enthusiastic, optimistic personality and is excellent at explaining not only what techniques to use, but also why those techniques will help you to sing better. I can tell that my voice, vocal range and confidence have improved and can't wait to see where the lessons will take me!

Marilyn ...what a wonderful review and thank you indeed! Yes indeed it feels as if you have come so far in your vocal awareness and development and there is so much more to discover and I am delighted I can help you in that exploration. Your whole hearted approach to performance is always so well received and our audiences always remark on both your stage presence and singing....looking forward to the Nancy Sinatra!!

Michal K.'s review on Mar 28, 2021

I have sung before but this is a new journey as I sing with a new voice. My voice was transformed by the second lesson due to a game-changing technique. Sandra is energetic and I appreciated the theory/history lessons which reassured me that foundation was as important to Sandra as it is to me. Looking forward to building on what I have learnt so far!

Linda K.'s review on Sep 29, 2020

Delighted with Sandra’s approach and patience, clearly explains and encourages you giving good feedback so l understood where l was up to and what l need to work on. I much appreciated the help l received in protecting my voice from strain and damage and had been singing previously and putting my vocal chords at risk. Highly recommend Sandra

Thank you so much Linda, it is my pleasure to work with you to begin to truly discover your own voice and particularly the undiscovered range...I know you are very keen to express the voice and the sentiment and emotion fuelling the sound....and also your regular online views of the countryside was always uplifting! Onwards!

Veronika B.'s review on Sep 26, 2020

I'm very happy I got the chance to work with Sandra since she always makes the lessons fun, productive and very informative but the most important makes you feel comfortable. I have been able to make some lovely noises that I didn't even know i was capable of. :) I'm always looking forward to our lessons and what new I will learn next. I would definitely recommend her!

Amelia C.'s review on Sep 17, 2020

I have been having singing lessons with Sandra since September 2018 and she has helped my singing quality and performance come along in leaps and bounds. I am an advanced soprano and she always has plenty of ideas for repertoire and genres to explore. Her lessons are always a joy and she is very patient and supportive and critiques kindly. She has vast knowledge and experience to draw from to improve performance of songs and runs performances classes with fellow students which are great for beginners or experienced singers.

Roisin O.'s review on Sep 09, 2020

Sandra is a wonderful teacher. I have taken up singing lessons as a beginner to build confidence and rediscover joy in singing and I've been getting so much from the experience. Sandra is inspiring, encouraging and nurturing. It's wonderful to work with someone with such a breadth of knowledge and technique combined with an infectious love of music. Can't recommend enough.

Thank you so much Roisin, what a lovely review and such early days yet but your voice is certainly really developing and your own enthusiasm and enquiring mind around the voice are a joy to work with! I am very touched that you have placed such good faith in me to build your vocal confidence and there is indeed much shared humour ! Onwards.. and with joy!

What education or training is most relevant to your work?

Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Essential that the teacher has a thorough understanding of singing technique methodology rather than just singing of songs...This is highly important for real vocal progress ...obviously a good sense of humour and encouragement from the outset is very useful and a holistic awareness of each student to enable a true understanding of the synthesis of voice and person..this enables a real building of confidence.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
Look for academic and professional qualifications from top conservatories.. Sadly many vocal coaches have little or no proper training and unfortunately I have on several occasions, come across singers who have experienced voice damage because of this . Enquire as to the methodology of the teacher and very importantly where did they train...high quality conservatoire training is ideal . What is their experience and what musical genres are the teacher experienced in working with. Is the teacher experienced in building a voice from the very beginning as well as guiding and coaching the professional singer if this is required?
What are some good examples of past customers?
Please do look at my Reviews on Bidvine to get a taste of my work! Here is one from Roisin.. Roisin O'Mahony's review on 9 Sep, 2020 Sandra is a wonderful teacher. I have taken up singing lessons as a beginner to build confidence and rediscover joy in singing and I've been getting so much from the experience. Sandra is inspiring, encouraging and nurturing. It's wonderful to work with someone with such a breadth of knowledge and technique combined with an infectious love of music. Can't recommend enough. ...8th June 2020 Sandra is a very friendly and bubbly individual who will make you laugh and instill confidence into your singing. From the very first few lessons you can tell that Sandra is an experienced teacher with valuable insight into the voice. I have been using the techniques Sandra teaches and have already seen a huge shift in my voice which is what it’s all about! My practice time is so much more valuable now that I have the knowledge and tools to really work on the voice. I really recommend not wasting your hours trying to navigate through all the information you find on the internet and get yourself a voice teacher, Sandra preferably because she’s the best :)
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
My recent project is our preparing my students both those new to performing and those professional for Live Streaming...this is an exciting opportunity for my students to take their gig and concert experience online ...full of challenges undoubtedly but very rewarding. We have held online concerts including from Halloween Fun, Christmas Extravaganza to Disney Magic, Into the Light...Songs to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day, St Patrick’s Hooley to James Bond Songs, Songs of Inspiration for Easter to Divas.....something for all audiences and all singers!
How did you first get into this line of work?
I began teaching when I was working with my teacher who was the UK’s top singing teacher and Principal of London School of Singing and began my teacher training programme there and then at the Royal Academy of Music in London also.
