This is a rare vocal category. I enjoy singing songs and arias from all kinds of classical music stretching back from the early 1600's up to the present day. I sing in French, German, Italian, English, Russian, Latin, Spanish and Czech. I play piano as well as classical guitar
I'm a dedicated musicologist and have a deep interest in the history of music and singing (in all genres) from the middle ages to the present day, and have gained a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of most musical genres.
I teach a range of musical genres including folk, jazz, classical, pop and musical theatre to students of all ages. As a mucisian with dyslexia, I have a unique insight into alternative learning styles and the individual needs of my students. I teach students who want to sing for pleasure as well as those taking the Junior and Leaving Certificate exams and studying for exams with the ABRSM, RIAM, LCM and TCM.
