Top Modern Singing Lessons

Our group sessions are held every two weeks on Saturdays. All singers are welcome to attend.
We keep the price minimal at only £10 per person for the 2 hour session, so everyone can have access to professional voice training.

We run a facebook group for all group members. Click to join!

What are they?
One-to-one singing lessons but in a group format, with piano, guitar or digital accompaniment.

Why should I take a group session?
Heres 10 ways it could help you:
1 - Training your singing technique in a group helps you learn faster!
2 - Learn about your singing by watching others. You can actively take part or watch and listen!
3 - Everyone gets a chance to work on their voice.
4 - We can cover technique for all sounds, all styles and all levels of singer.
5 - We work on your choice of subject. Every singer and every session can be different.
6 - Its not part of a course, so you can attend a series of sessions or come and go as you please.
7 - Build confidence performing in front of an audience.
8 - Get positive opinions and ideas from other singers.
9 - We see that every singer has something they are good at.
10- Access a wealth of technical knowledge and years of singing experience.

Who is it for?
All singers are welcome. You will benefit from this session at any stage in your career. Some singers come to build confidence, some to solve vocal issues, some to learn new information, some for extra practice.

The group is different every time, so we adapt the style of lesson to suit the group. We can work together or individually. We ask every singer to bring a question, challenge or issue with a song they are singing and we take a look at it, one at a time, in the group. You may watch other singers working on their technique or let us know what you want to work on and we will provide the tools and techniques to make it work for you. If you have a song or sound you want to achieve, try to bring an example recording of the sound you want.

  • "Ben has been a great teacher over the last two or so years. He is very patient, allowing you to progress at your own pace, and he has really helped to develop the style of my voice, so much so that I have surprised myself! It does not matter what style of voice you have/are looking for, as Ben would definitely be able (and happy) to help. Would strongly recommend!"- Holly Atkinson

    "I came to Ben for singing lessons as I was no longer gaining any improvement with my previous teacher. What a difference!! I remember walking out of my first lesson feeling absolutely blown away that I had just sung for an hour with no strain, and was producing a much better sound instantly. The vocal method he teaches had me singing easily, able to relax, singing much more powerfully and consistently and my range improved dramatically as a result. I have since gone on to do some professional recording and singing; my confidence in performance has shot up and I even feel I have better control of my speaking voice when nervous etc. Brilliant thanks Ben!" - Abi Carpenter
