About Jessica S.
Thank you for your interest!
I offer singing lessons packed with all kinds of information! Breathing technique and vocal warm-ups,, exploring a range of song repertoire, musicianship skills, confidence building, audition and exam preparation (for those who want to!) and most importantly, finding a real enjoyment of singing - all in a friendly and professional environment. I have run a successful singing teaching practice for adults and children in Cambridge since 2006, working with a wide variety of people and teaching a range of musical and vocal styles.
I have an enhanced DBS certificate, public liability insurance and am a member of AOTOS (Association of Singing Teachers) and EQUITY (Actors' Union.) I also have the NSPCC/Musicians Union 'Keeping Children Safe in Music' Child Protection certification.
I am a trained classical soprano and has a wide range of performing experience both on stage (Royal Opera, English Touring Opera, Opera North Education) and on the concert platform (St John’s Smith Square, Three Choirs Festival, Aldeburgh, Brighton, Exeter, Kings Lynn, Newbury, York Festivals). I also have a great deal of experience in performing twentieth century and new music and currently have a 21st century song project called Living Songs, that recently received funding from the RVW Trust. www.livingsongs.co.uk
I have considerable experience in music education and community music both as a singing teacher and a vocal animateur. I have worked with people of all ages and abilities in both a workshop and one to one setting and have run projects, course and classes for music hubs, orchestras, disability and mental health organisations. I have led community singing projects for the Royal Opera, Opera North and English Touring Opera and international projects in Belize and India as well as leading a range of workshops from 'Find Your Voice' session to performance workshops in UK universities.
As part of mid career CPD, I recently completed a two year course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, as part of continuing my professional development - a Post-Graduate Certificate in Performance Teaching (Higher Education elective) and was made a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
I am the Vocal Consultant for THAMES, the music hub in Tower Hamlets and I teach singing at The Perse School (Upper) and at St Catharine's College, University of Cambridge. I also run young choirs at the Centre for Young Musicians in Peterborough (PCYM), a division of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
