HI, I'M ALICIA

a versatile vocalist, musician, and teacher from Essex, now based in Greater Manchester. I've gathered a lifetime of knowledge and a wealth of experience, all of which I am passionate to share with you! With a multidisciplinary background, I offer a unique blend and understanding of musicianship, theory, acting, vocal science, vocal healthsongwriting, storytelling, and an empathetic, psychological-based approach to performance anxiety. Find out more about me here.

OVER A DECADE OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have an incredible passion for giving people the tools to love their voice and build their confidence. Seeing people flourish is my purpose in life! Visit here for more on my training.

ALL AGES, ALL ABILITIES, ALL AMBITIONS

Every lesson meets the unique needs of the individual! My clients range from beginners to students in top performing arts colleges, to those working professionally in the music and performance industry, including in West End productions. I cover a range of vocal styles and techniques: Jazz, Rock, Pop, Musical Theatre, Blues, Folk, Soul. Find out more about vocal lessons here.

HELPING YOU GROW

As an ACT Practitioner, I help with performance anxiety and enhancing artistic presence, so you (and everyone else) love your performances even more! Are you looking for Vocal Health guidance? I can help you build healthy vocal habits for everyday voice. Find out about vocal health sessions here

NO PRESSURE, MUSIC FOR PLEASURE

SING IT BACK!

COMING SOON

Even before Covid, I have been recording and providing my own exercise tracks for students to use at home via my online Student Area. From specially crafted ear training exercises to a range of flexibility patterns, I am now in the process of making my Sing It Back tracks accessible to everyone!

WHAT MAKES THEM DIFFERENT FROM OTHER EXERCISE TRACKS?

Built on the feedback of my students over the last decade, my exercises are kept simple but fun. There's no distracting music, only a funky drum beat to help you pick out the timing, allowing your ear to pick out the notes! 

WHY 'SING IT BACK'?

Every exercise gives you a chance to sing back the notes, patterns, scales, and intervals unaccompanied, strengthening your ear and confidence in your voice.

WHO ARE THEY FOR?

Everyone! The tracks are made to be used by teachers, coaches, singers and students of all ages, abilities, and ambitions.
