About Singing with Sam

I started singing from a very young age in an all-female choir. After completing my Grade 8 Music Theatre with Distinction, I gained a place at The Musical Theatre Academy in London. After graduating with a Professional Diploma in Musical Theatre, I began working as a Vocal Coach for Razzamataz Theatre Schools (Derby, Sheffield and Mansfield) and Pauline Quirke Academy Of Performing Arts (PQA) (Burton-Upon-Trent). As well as teaching private lessons to children both online and in-person, I began working at Music Learning Collective (MLC) in West Bridgford, where I privately tutor students of all ages. I am available to coach students for examinations. I have extensive experience with both the RSL Awards and the LCM Syllabus. I can also assist with Music Theory. If examinations are not of interest, we can cater the sessions to reach your individual goals. The most important thing is that the lessons are tailored to the individual to ensure maximum satisfaction. In terms of music, I can cover any style of music. I specialise in Musical Theatre, and have very strong skills in Classical Singing, Pop/Rock and Jazz. I am based in Nottinghamshire. Depending on distance, I am happy to travel to deliver the lessons. Online lessons are also available for clients from further afield.

Shanley B.'s review on Apr 20, 2021

Sam worked for my theatre school as a singing teacher and she was excellent. Always prepared, on time and great to work with. She is really knowledgeable in her area of expertise and is able to deliver what is asked of her easily. Her harmony work is outstanding. She is a real asset!

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
30 minute lesson (online or in-person) = £18 If four 30 minute lessons are booked in advance = £60 60 minute lesson (online or in-person) = £30 If four 60 minute lessons are booked in advance = £100
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
It is important to understand your personal goals and interests. I will want to know what kind of music you like in order to make the sessions as enjoyable as possible. Aside from your music taste, your goals are incredibly important when structuring the sessions. I will want to know if you are interested in examinations or not, and what exactly you want to get out of the lessons, whether that be overcoming performance anxiety, completing an exam or just having fun.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
Professional Diploma in Musical Theatre - Distinction* Grade 8 Music Theatre - Distinction Grade 5 Music Theory - Distinction I.D.S.P (Intensive Drama School Preparation Course) - Distinction*
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Make sure the teacher can help you achieve your goals. If you are keen to do an examination, it is important you have a teacher who is familiar with the syllabus, as they will be familiar with the preparation process and the standard of performance in order to get the best possible result for you. If you are particularly keen in a certain type of singing or music, it might be a good idea to see if a teacher has specialised in that particular genre. Aside from that, I would say it is very important that you feel comfortable with your teacher. You need to feel like it is a safe, encouraging and supportive environment, where you can make mistakes, learn from them, and grow as a performer.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
- How would you describe your approach to teaching? - What genre of music do you specialise in teaching? - Are you experienced in helping students with examinations? - Do you have an enhanced DBS check? (This is particularly important if the student is under 18)
How did you first get into this line of work?
I was a part of a competitive choir throughout my childhood. As I got older, I undertook the role of Assistant Vocal Coach, allowing me to mentor younger members of the choir for their upcoming examinations. After I trained professionally in London and returned home to Nottingham after graduation, I wanted to give back to the next generation of talent and pass on my expertise. This is when I began to teach for Razzamataz Theatre Schools, The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts (PQA), and Music Learning Collective (MLC). From working for these companies, I have truly realised my passion for helping others achieve their goals and realise their potential.
