Meet Simon

Successful classical based singing teacher over 40 years, with many previous clients working in West End, Opera and internationally. I have rehabilitated a post nodule op soprano voice. Currently writing a book on the practice and art of singing including acting through song. I am on the Vocal Faculty of the Music Theatre BA degree course at Trinity Laban Conservatoire and have a large private teaching practice. I always start by helping students with their confidence in singing and use images to help in understanding my methods.

Beth J.'s review on Nov 09, 2020

My singing lessons with Simon have been an absolute pleasure. As a complete beginner, Simon has patiently worked with me to demystify the relationship between the body and the voice and I can already feel the impact of his teaching when singing. In his lessons, Simon uses a variety of different approaches, exercises and visual aids all of which all work together to help ensure a consistent, clear sense of understanding. In short, excellent lessons and excellent value.

Madeleine m.'s review on Nov 03, 2020

Simon transformed my voice, he taught me everything that i now know and do when I sing. On top of being so wise and full of knowledge, he is really kind, patient and funny and all round great teacher. I can’t thank Simon enough for what he’s taught me, he is someone I think I’ll go back to for lessons for life.

Simon is an amazing teacher. I am very grateful I was able to find him. In just a few lessons, I regained my voice where others had failed to help me. I am happy with the results and I would recommend Simon to anyone seeking singing lessons. Very professional and excellent technique.

I've been having lessons with Simon for almost 2 months now and I've seen and felt such an improvement in my voice. His lessons are a good combination of hard work and fun. He is very resourceful and encouraging which has helped with my confidence. I definitely recommend lessons with Simon.

Just had my second lesson with Simon and I'm so happy I found him. Already I feel like I am benefiting from his vast knowledge and experience. He is extremely welcoming and the way he communicates his approach to the voice is easy to understand. I look forward to growing and progressing with him.

I've been singing with Simon for almost two years now & have really enjoyed seeing myself develop with his help & encouragement. My technique has improved massively & I'm so much more confident as a singer & in auditions. I cannot recommend Simon enough.

Mary P.'s review on Nov 04, 2018

Simon is a great teacher - he is knowledgable, patient, and fun. My partner and I have been taking joint lessons with Simon for a couple of months now and we are already noticing an improvement. Simon caters to our skill level (neither of us had ever had singing lessons before) and to our interests (mainly doing fun duets from musicals). It is also a great way to wind down after a stressful day at work. Thank you Simon for all your help and we both look forward to continuing our lessons!

Maria W.'s review on Nov 01, 2018

My daughter started her singing lessons with Simon and within a few weeks we saw/heard an enormous improvement. My daughter loves her lessons and is eager to learn more, and she already built up the confidence to sing in front of others. We highly recommend Simon, his knowledge, experience, and teaching is fantastic, he is flexible, very professional, efficient, and guides my daughter towards a goal without pushing her.

Thanks Mona, I'm really loving teaching Maria, she is very intelligent and receptive to my methods and we have a good laugh at the same time as working hard.
