    Why Choose Us ?

    Ed and Anna were trained in the world-renowned 'Speech Level Singing' vocal technique, which is one of the most highly regarded vocal techniques in the world and is used by singers such as Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Madonna, Barbra Streisand, Prince, Liza Minelli and over 120 Grammy Award winners.  

    Professionally-trained singers in their own right, Ed and Anna are also some of the most experienced teachers.  They each teach around 1,500 lessons, every year.  They are expert singers who studied the art and science of teaching.  Not all singing teachers do this - some teachers can only sing well but not teach well.

    Ed and Anna operate as separate independent businesses, so your lesson booking and payment is made with your chosen teacher via the Booking section of this website.

    Having lessons with Ed and can’t express how great he is. Really well structured lessons and amazing understanding of how the voice works.

    I can’t recommend Anna highly enough.

    What Makes Us Different ?

    We are trained in a proper vocal method - the world-renowned 'Speech Level Singing' (SLS) developed by L.A. vocal maestro (vocal coach to Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder). 

    We identify your strengths and weaknesses through discussion and a special diagnostic scale. We use tailored exercises to help target and improve your weaknesses, rather than just disguising or avoiding them.

    We work with you in a similar way to how a personal trainer or sports coach might.  We exercise and strengthen your vocal muscles using better or stronger coordination so you can make an easier, more resonant (i.e. better sounding) sound.

    We don't just give you exercises that worked for our voice.  We're trained to work with every kind of voice - male or female, big or small - and have many years of experience working with each.

    We can teach anyone.  We understand 'behind the scenes' - the anatomy, physiology and function of the voice.  (You don't need to know all the complicated stuff though!)

    We teach by cause and effect. If you are breathy, we give you a vocal exercise to increase your vocal cord closure, so you leak air less and without you squeezing.  If you cannot 'place' the sound into your 'masque', we give you an exercise that helps you find that place.

    We will not change your own unique vocal style or strengths...unless you ask us to.  If you want the grit or the flip, you can keep it.  We want you to sound like you never even needed a lesson.

    We don't use strange or abstract teaching concepts (unless you're familiar with them!) - e.g. 'place the sound further forward'...'imagine you have a penny clenched between your buttocks'.  This kind of thing can get a little weird and confusing!

    Singing cannot be done with brute force.  It needs coordination and control before applying strength and power.  (Unless you sing in a punk band!)  Taking singing lessons is more like hitting a ball from the 'sweet spot' of your voice, rather than giving it a massive 'whack' and hoping for the best.
