About Christina S.
If you're looking to improve your vocal technique, build confidence, or maybe you just love singing and think you could benefit from guided lessons to help find your own unique vocal style, then Christina is a perfect match. Whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced vocalist, Christina will help you reach your own personal singing goals, in a comfortable and pressure free environment.
Christina is a young and accomplished vocal coach, with a patient and fun teaching style, working to develop and nurture your voice, build confidence, and find vocal ease. She is always looking to work with new students who want to find comfort and self expression through singing.
As an experienced singer, songwriter, performer and multi-instrumentalist, Christina has always been incredibly passionate about music & singing, and knows the frustrations and hurdles you may face when finding your voice. In her formative years, she learnt the flute, piano and guitar alongside singing - and after 18 years of studying/practicing music, she now performs live, writes and composes her own music, and records work that she releases independently. Christina has performed in many different venues around the UK, and at festivals like Glastonbury & The Great Escape. She's also supported artists on tour over seas, such as Ben Howard - and holds a BA Degree in Music and an Extended Diploma in Music Performance.
Christina offers singing lessons in person and online, and teaches students from ages 11 and up! Her lessons are tailored around each individuals ability, pace and direction. Christina can put students forward for exams, but understands there are many goals for students to work towards outside of the exam route!
During lessons, Christina will work with students to develop healthy vocal technique, style & tone, strengthen the voice, and broaden vocal range. She encourages students of all abilities and ages to learn more about their voice. This includes understanding the science of the voice, and Christina guides students through different methods to achieve healthy vocal techniques, providing them with a more in-depth knowledge of their voice.
Confidence building is also extremely important to Christina - This is why she offers advice on performing, familiarising students with a stage set up, and she encourages them to develop artistic expression, sometimes through songwriting or self accompaniment .
Amongst many things, lessons with Christina will include:
- Warm up and vocal health
- Breathing exercises and understanding the connection between the body and the voice
- Vocal technique, performance, and tone
- Creating a listening library, analysing other performers and their technique
- Live performance coaching, working on stage presence and confidence
- Work on supporting your voice & boost breath control
- Practice & develop healthy vocal techniques
- Develop your "mix" voice
- Smooth out bridges
- Broaden your range
- Work towards grades and other goals
- Nurture your voice in order to build confidence and find vocal ease!
Christina teaches almost all genres, but specialises in pop, folk, rock, and other alternative/contemporary genres. Her background has allowed her to focus on many styles, but it's important to Christina that her students enjoy the music they’re learning.
A fist lesson with Christina begins with a relaxed and informal chat about what you want to achieve, any goals, favourite songs/genres/artists, and your relationship & experience with singing & music! Christina will also give a brief overview of how lessons will go ahead, and will slowly work through some light, beginner exercises in order to gauge ability, level and confidence of the new student.
Lessons in something new can sometimes be daunting, but Christina will put you at ease and you’ll quickly get to know her! She won’t be pushing you too hard too soon, and just asks that you bring yourself and your passion for music to the classes. It would be great if you can also bring a notebook along to lessons (to record any home practices/songs to listen to/things covered) and have a think about music you might like to start working on.
