Introduction - Hello from Melanie!

I am a classically trained coloratura soprano and have enjoyed many leading roles on stages across the country. I started lessons at aged 15 and now have a degree in music along with three diplomas from Trinity College London in both singing and music theory (including LTCL singing recital, with distinction). I also have grade 8 piano.

I am an experienced private music teacher in singing, beginners piano and music theory.  I have been teaching children and adults for over 10 years.

Music is my passion and I love teaching and inspiring others to reach their potential. I am friendly, encouraging, positive and will always try to build self confidence to enable students to learn and, more importantly, enjoy learning. 

Each lesson is personalised and appropriate level music sought to build technique. Students can make requests too for music to learn!

If you’re interested in private piano lessons, singing lessons or music theory online or around Eastleigh, Southampton, I can help. Get in touch!

Singing tuition for beginners, intermediates and experts!

I am an experienced singing teacher and focus on fun, technique and repertoire. I love voices of all ages and abilities and enjoy helping students be better singers. Everyone has a voice therefore, my philosophy is that anyone can sing!

During lessons, we find your natural singing voice together then work on developing this sound without forcing or creating a false voice. We explore good singing techniques like correct breathing, posture and musical expression. I have lots of appropriate warm up, activities and games to help every voice (any age or ability) build on their singing technique.

I offer flexible scheduling through my student portal and you get full notes after each session so you can take away practise points and remember what to focus on (parents or guardians receive the notes for younger students).

I have helped many students succeed in performances, exams and festivals. As my student, you will have opportunities to perform, take exams and compete in festivals too or can simply just learn to sing!

Lessons are online (Covid-19 safe) and cost £19 per half hour session. Please contact me if you need more information about singing lessons… or go a step further, be brave and book a lesson online; there’s no obligation to continue… but you might just love it!

Piano lessons for beginners

I teach beginner piano lessons up to grade 5.  All ages welcome for the simple reason that it’s never too late to learn or too early to start playing this wonderful instrument!

During piano lessons, we focus on setting good habits for future playing through posture, fingering and musical expression alongside learning to read the music to enhance playing. We explore pieces through method books and supplementary repertoire appropriate to the playing level, requests are my favourite as we can usually arrange any tune so that you can play it!
