    WORLD CLASS vocal coaching

    Ed & 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, they 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 and art of teaching (not all singing teachers do this!), who now teach full-time.

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

    I can’t recommend Anna highly enough.

    What Makes Us Different

    • All SVT teachers 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).  
    • Knowing this method means we can teach anyone, as we understand the 'behind the scenes' (physiological) function of the voice.  We teach efficiently and so you remember what you've just done.  (You do not necessarily need to know the physiology bit though!)
    • We don't just give you exercises that worked for our voice.  We are trained to work with every kind of voice - male or female, big or small - and each have many years of experience working with each.
    • We identify your specific strengths and weaknesses through discussion and a special diagnostic scale.
    • We use specific exercises to help target and improve your weaknesses, rather than just disguising or avoiding them.
    • We will not change your own unique vocal style or strengths...unless you ask us to.  We want you to sound like you never even needed a lesson.
    • 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 don't use strange or abstract teaching concepts (or ones you're not familiar with anyway).  For example, 'place the sound further forward'; 'sing and imagine you have a penny clenched between your buttocks'!  It can be a little confusing otherwise.

    Proper coordination

    Your teacher will work with you to develop your voice in a similar way to how a personal trainer or sports coach might.  Within a vocal lesson you exercise and strengthen your vocal muscles in new ways so you are able to produce a better sound.

    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.
