How to Sing Like An Angel, Scream Like A Demon and Everything In Between.

I am the singing teacher that lets you make the noise you want, then trains you in how to make it awesome.

I will teach you the physical and technical basis of singing powerfully and efficiently and help you diagnose and fix whatever problems might be holding you back, but then it is all about expression. We will figure out together the kind of voice you want to develop, the message you want to express and then go deep in song studies (existing repertoire and your own original work where relevant). Together we will set goals and practical tasks to develop you as both a singer and as an artist, incorporating songwriting skills, home recording, live work and mic skills, music theory and history and even spoken word and acting techniques, as your particular path develops.

I particularly specialise in jazz, rock (up to and including extreme metal screaming/growling) and cross/transgender vocal studies (I identify as gender non-binary myself and have performed in male, female and androgynous guises). I mostly teach online and from the Echo Factory in Leicester, England, though I will consider other locations - if in doubt go ahead and ask me.

Quotes and testimonials:

"An extraordinary musician"
Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

"Kerry really does exceed all expectations... He will always go above and beyond for the students and he is one of the most hard working, polite, positive and simply, nicest people that I have ever worked with".
Mark Foster, former director of Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust Rockschools

“Kerry worked with the National Theatre of Scotland's Adam World Choir to produce a wonderful album of original music by trans and non-binary people from around the world. Kerry was a brilliant support to the whole group, making each artist feel comfortable sharing their work and helping them musically, as well as sharing their own tracks on the work. Kerry always made deadlines and was such a positive force behind the project. Kerry was also part of a digital symposium we held, talking about the album and it's creative influences. Kerry's commitment to this project and enthusiasm has been wonderful and resulted in a fantastic collaborative process”.
Leonie Gasson, Adam World Choir, National Theatre of Scotland

Zara
Classical singing and piano lessons for all levels and ages
Dear parents and students, I am a professional singer and pianist from Hong Kong, having more than 10 years of experience in music teaching. Having graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Bachelor degree in music and Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel with a Master degree in classical singing (cum laude), I am currently pursuing my postgraduate study in singing at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel, under the tutelage of Valerie Guillorit. I am a holder of Licentiate Trinity College of London (LTCL) vocal and piano performance certificates, both with distinctions. Besides, I am a holder of ABRSM Grade 8 music theory certificate with merit. I have performed as soloist at a lot of occasions in Hong Kong and Europe, and the repertoire includes opera, Lied, oratorio and new music. I have given singing and piano lessons to students ranging from 2 to 40 years of age. Very happily, all of them had obtained distinctions in their ABRSM exams and some of them had won prizes in competitions. However, I do not teach them for distinctions and prizes. No matter what they get on their music journey, I love them with all my heart and I always believe that encouragement is the key. For beginners, I focus a lot on basic techniques. During the lessons, I also like to share my knowledge about history and theory, which are important building blocks to shaping a musician. For advanced learners, I would teach more about musicality and music presentation along with basic techniques. Of course, the actual teaching method depends on the personality and ability of student too. I grow up in a top English school in Hong Kong, so I can communicate in English fluently. I am confident that I will give my students the best learning experience. Please feel free to contact me if you would like a trial lesson:)

Danny
SONGWRITING course with intensive and result-oriented methods
English Translation: contact me please Everybody generally consists of chord progressions and text lines. But where does that information come from and how do you make something out of nothing? How do you make that one great hit or how strongly does your new song affect your love? Well, that's called "inspiration processing" and how does that work? Well, I'll tell you that in my course. If you play 'what' guitar or piano, then you are one step ahead. Your instrument is like a trampoline that offers you more options to go further and higher. Most 'songs' are born at the craziest moments. A good songwriter his / her antenna 's are always open :-) and for some it's a continuous activity. During my course I teach you through all sorts of tips and tricks (including: Travel Chord Duo Method - One Four Five and 2 sixes lines - Key Word Designation and Relative Chord Progressions etc.) how you can get strong songs. For me it is a daily activity and I have been writing all my life for others and sometimes for myself. All in all, I have sold more than a million copies worldwide as an author / composer / performer. Is that little or is that a lot? I do not know. It doesn't interest me that much anymore. I want to write my science about songs, share it with motivated people who want to go further than just replaying others' songs. Whether they get stuck somewhere during composing and who are not afraid to seek advice. Music is a life flirt. There are only two types of music: good and bad ... Do you have a foundation of chords, do you want to know how to make a good song .....? Just book with me for an hour. Then you also know who I am and where I hide :-) Not satisfied after the first 'lesson'? Money Back. Danny

Maxime
Commercial singing lessons / acoustic guitar / composition
My name is Maxime I'm 25 years old and I'm a singer-songwriter. I offer accompanying acoustic guitar lessons, singing and composition lessons in Pully or Skype. The vocal technique (mixed voice) that I will teach you, will allow you to interpret your favorite songs that you can hear on the radio with ease and fluidity. Organic : A trumpet player with the Pully band for many years, I gained my musical experience at the Pully Music School. I was passionate about acoustic guitar at the age of 14 and I trained myself as an autodidact with my already acquired musical knowledge. I then wanted to improve my vocal technique and it was through the vocal programs of Brett Manning (Singing Success) and the advice of his associates that I could improve my voice considerably. I am currently a member of the IVTOM International voice teacher of mix to train me more precisely on the scientific aspect of the voice.

Pop&Rock Singing Lessons: Professional Touring Coach

I have studied Estill method aswell as Speech level singing, musical theatre, pop/commercial style and have formed my own unique style of coaching which consistently builds the confidence and skill set of my students. I cater for all ability levels and welcome absolute beginners. During lessons we study anatomy, warm ups, exercises, placement, repertoire and then stage confidence and putting all of the skills learned into songs and performance. My style is relaxed yet very informative and I aim for a student to see results quickly - but to enjoy the lessons enough to want to continue over a period of time. I also offer clubnights, studio days and various workshops alongside one to one coaching. I offer lessons to age 12+

Jules
Vocal technical coaching (all styles) and singing (lyrical) on Lausanne and its surroundings
How to learn to sing? To sing just and well? To answer these complex questions, I was interested in phonatory mechanisms, with speech therapists and phoniatres, I studied singing with a dozen singing teachers, I participated in many Masterclasses and trained myself in different institutions: first at the conservatories of Vaulx-en-Velin and Mâcon, then at the Regional Conservatory of Montpellier, and finally at the Haute Ecole de Musique in Lausanne where I am currently studying with Leontina Vaduva. It is first of all through passion that I want to convey what I have learned. This is felt, according to the words of my students, in my way of teaching which reconciles the rigor of art and the pleasure of singing. In my pedagogical approach, I clearly separate the vocal technique and the art of singing, that is to say the management of an objective mechanism, physical and physiological, of sound production (articulation of the language, management of the pressures subglottic and supra-glottic to achieve a pneumo-phono-resonantial balance), and the shaping of this sound to achieve musical beauty (make a beautiful "legato" line, tempo variations, nuances, etc.). ). When I start with a new student, I first make a diagnosis to determine the range of the voice, the level of resonantial passages, and check the health of the larynx (tonicity, endurance, flexibility). The typical course begins with vocal technique exercises and ends with the work of a musical piece. I adapt my course according to the needs of each one (for example, I can start with a Feldenkreis or Alexander technique exercise, relaxation, breath, or a physical warm-up), but also according to the desires and tastes of the student (the technical part will last more or less long). Considering that the stage is important for personal fulfillment and to set goals in music, I propose to my students to participate in the auditions and group lessons of the music school where I work in Lutry.
