Your selections are not visible to other students and neither are theirs visible to you. Ensure that I have your contact details (at least 1 way of contacting you) - text or email me. 

The doodle poll is not a booking, it merely enables me to work out what slot to allocate to which student. I will confirm with you a lesson slot at which point it will become a booking.

Terms and conditions

Full payment is required in advance.

Date and time of lessons are to be mutually agreed and scheduled.

If you are late for a lesson, your time slot will not be extended and the time lost is non-refundable.

Lessons cancelled by yourself with less than 48hrs notice are non-refundable.

If you do no show up without cancellation, the lesson is non-refundable.

In the unlikely event that I cancel a lesson slot, a new lesson slot will be arranged which is mutually agreed.

Lessons are non-transferrable.

All multi-lesson deal lessons must be taken within their 4 or 6 months allocation or are non-refundable.

If my availability causes the multi-lesson deal lessons to not fit within the 4 or 6 month period, an extension will be given.

Shorter or longer lesson slots (than 1hr) can be arranged if preferred when you have a multi-lesson deal.

Once you have begun using a multi-lesson deal, a refund cannot be given.



Cost of tuition depends on where (which also depends on when), how many students and whether you are paying up front.

When and where: I hold lessons at a teaching space in Chingford mount. If you can come there when I will be teaching there, or have lessons over Skype, then there is no extra cost. If I am coming to you (on another day etc) then I must add costs for my travel and time spent traveling (which is likely to be between £15-£20 depending on exactly where).

How many students: The price goes up for more students, but is then divided between them. They share the entire lesson time and do most things together, but there will be separate tasks and homework given and there is therefore more preparation and more voices to know when there are more students. 1 students at my teaching space is £35/hr. 2 students at my teaching space sharing is £40/hr (£20 each). 3 students at my teaching space sharing is £45/hr (£15 each).

Discounts: There are discounts available if you are paying for 6 or 12 hours up front. £9 will be deducted from the overall cost of 6hrs paid for upfront and £42 will be deducted from the overall cost of 12hrs paid for upfront.

Copy the following into an email and complete for me to quote you the price

Please express your availability. eg Saturdays 9am-1pm, Mondays 5pm-8pm, Fridays 9am-8pm etc:      If unable to make Saturdays, where would I come to to teach you:
Please indicate how many students:
And their ages (as this may affect what and how I teach):
Please indicate whether you will be paying up front and for how many hours of lessons:

The course includes:  26hrs group technique tuition. Folder of course materials. Vocal exercise CD. Scheme of work, activities, exercises, tasks and progress tracking. Quick start guide and other learning resources. Certificate of completion.

This isn't a music theory, ear-training, harmony or songwriting course, although some elements of these will be taught within the course. This course is not genre/style specific nor based on songs as the material. Your voice is the material being worked on and my job is to get you singing at your best whatever you sing. We do look at aspects of singing technique re genres and styles within the course, but the course is not about teaching you to sing specific songs or in specific styles. Come with what ever style(s) you sing. 

There are no musical or academic requirements in order to go on the course, but a good level of spoken and aural English will be necessary in order to understand the teaching and materials.

Soul Choir takes place straight after Singing Course sessions. A lifetime 20% discount on the price of Soul Choir is available to those who go on and complete the Singing Course. Therefore, upon booking both the Course and Soul Choir you will receive a 20% discount on Soul Choir.
