Tutor of Singing and Opera
Anna has been teaching singing for the last 10 years, to students of a large variety of ages and abilities. She started as an apprentice to the head of singing at the Junior Royal Academy of Music, and has since assisted the vocal expert Mary King (presenter, BBC Cardiff singer of the world).
Anna studied Music at Oxford University and Singing at Royal Academy of Music and Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She has sung for a wide range of British opera companies (Garsington, Grange Park, Birmingham Opera Company, Dartington Festival) and has given concerts throughout the UK and Europe.
Anna is passionate about music education and music in the community. She has been involved in education projects for Glyndebourne Opera, Garsington Opera, The Grange and is an artist for Live Music Now!
Anna says, “For me, voice is an integral means of self expression and communication, so whether I am working with the next Pavarotti or someone who has never sung before, I love the challenge of helping my student make the most beautiful, free sound that they can, releasing that inner potential that informs both music making and daily life."
"I started singing lessons with Anna nearly a year ago. I love my lessons, Anna makes lessons fun and enjoyable, I feel very relaxed and comfortable with her and not nervous. She helps, encourages and supports me so much, I would really recommend anyone to join Anna for singing lessons. I enjoy the fun warm ups and the singing, we always learn fun different songs." - Jessica, aged 8
"I’ve been lucky enough to have singing lessons with Anna for several years. We work on both technique and repertoire and she has significantly improved my vocal abilities to perform. Under Anna's guidance, my confidence has grown immeasurably and I owe so much to her for helping me over come my nerves and confidence challenges.
On a personal note, Anna is a lovely person and I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with her and will be forever grateful for all that she has done for me." - Lauren Goldsmith
