He is also able to offer vocal coaching in the student's own school or college.

Beginners

Kevin has a wide experience teaching beginners and children. He will help your son or daughter in the preparation of an agreed song that will enable them to improve and increase their vocal range. He believes singing should ultimately be fun and available to anyone at any age or skill level!

Tutoring in Songwriting

Kevin is able to coach and support students in songwriting skills:
- Rhythm and melody/lyric exercises
- Connection and understanding of the song's narrative/meaning
- Understanding of lyrics and melody in song structure
- Musical expression
- Guidance on creation of produced track/accompaniment (if student only wants to sing melody and lyrics, Kevin can accompany on guitar)

Genre

Kevin teaches a wide range of musical genres - and always welcomes a new challenge!

Taster Lesson

Kevin will firstly, ask for any specific goals or focus points the student would like to work towards in starting lessons? Who's influenced them most musically? What are their favourite singers/artists? Which band(s) or singers do they like? Are there any songs or genres they have always wanted to work on as a vocalist? Kevin feels it's essential every student feels excited in the anticipation of their next lesson - this makes for a much more rewarding learning environment!

In Kevin's 'taster' lesson you should expect:
- A relaxed and introductory chat that enables Kevin to have a clear understanding of student and the 'vocalist' they wish to become.
- This includes the agreed choice of material/artist to help them achieve that goal.
- It will also include fun & creative 'warm ups' to break the ice.
- Also, enjoyable breathing exercises and scales that are characteristic to the start of a typical singing lesson with Kevin.
