** Now only doing online singing lessons until further notice **
For years I have been teaching people how to sing, and the one thing that has become apparent is that many people are wanting to be the next big thing. Everyone has the ability to sing - it's just a case of learning the right techniques to help you gain both ability and confidence.
The main thing for me, as a teacher, would be to help you to develop the right techniques for you to use throughout your time as a vocalist. The main things that would be covered in lessons would be:
Ways in which to impliment the above when singing
Since 2009, I have been teaching from the Rockschool syllabus, and have had a 100% pass rate result every year. I also have a 100% pass rate on the Trinity Rock and Pop vocal exams, and LCM Musical Theatre exams.
I teach all abilities, from complete beginners, to vocalists who have had lessons before, and wish to keep their voices in good shape. I teach from 7 years of age upwards, and lessons last for either half an hour or 1 hour, so if you are interested, send me an email on the 'Contact' page.
I am based between Weybridge and Woking in Surrey, teach from my home, and I am fully DBS (formally known as CRB) checked.
Cancellations: If you cancel less than 24 hours before your lesson, or do not show up to the lesson, you will be charged the full rate of the lesson that you would have had.
Penny is an excellent and inspiring teacher. She has taught my youngest daughter for the nine years, since she was seven. She teaches the basics in an engaging way, and seems to have a way of disguising the things kids find boring in music lessons as fun. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Penny is a fantastic teacher! Her lessons are always enjoyable and fun. She is able to help you use your voice most effectively and teach you the science behind the use of your voice. I would highly recommend her, whether you're beginner or advanced.

"When I started lessons with Penny I hadn't done any singing for 10 years, and wasn't even sure if I could do it any more. After just a couple of months, she gave me the confidence to sing in public again which I have been doing ever since, going from strength to strength. Thanks, Penny!"
- Caroline Steer, former singing pupil
Fantastic! Penny is extremely friendly, professional and reassuring. She is thoughtful, highly skilled, and I am so grateful for her help. If you want to learn to sing, Penny is the coach for you!
- Lucy L, former singing pupil
"Penny has an amazing voice and the patience of a saint. She was there throughout my Grade 8 and was always there if I needed any extra vocal coaching or for any questions I had. I would definitely recommend her!"
- Lisa Copeland, former singing pupil
After our daughter had such a bad experience with her last teacher, we were worried that she would stop developing her singing. But Penny has really given her confidence and inspired her to enjoy singing again. We are amazed at how far she has come, how much she loves her lessons, and how hard she practises at home. We can't recommend Penny highly enough - thank you!

I've been having lessons with Penny for sometime now, and I recommended her to my friends who have since started lessons. Lovely person, good quality lessons, flexible with times and commitment.
