About Me

Vocal Insight™ offers an in-depth and holistic insight into the embodied voice (with support from the Estill model and Linklater approach amongst other approaches) and allows one to draw out their vocal strengths and weaknesses whilst improving the former via efficient exercises and knowledge. Although the sole focus is based on one's voice, the aim is to evoke and nurture the potential of one's singing voice in order to gain confidence in using it within a public setting.

Each session is carefully tailored according to the students’ needs and all styles/genres are covered which include: Pop, Soul, Jazz, Rock, Ballad, Opera, folk, and Speech.
Deelee utilises a very patient and understanding approach as a singing teacher and voice coach, and her aim is to help any aspiring individual or novice with an interest in voice realise their great potential. In return, the only requirement is patience, focus, commitment, and determination.
Alongside singing lessons and voice coaching, Vocal Insight also specialises in songwriting tuition, basic music theory, and performance techniques.

As an experienced voice practitioner, professional vocalist, and songwriter, Deelee’s work ethic adheres to a friendly, efficient, and patient approach, where much focus is invested into attention, detail, and creative and artistic expression.


The voice and singing sessions are conducted with the use of a piano as an instrumental aid. The main purpose is to provide an effective and pleasant voice coaching service and to also inform students and clients about vocal pedagogy, artistry, and well-being.

Vocal Insight™ is available to all individuals who aim to improve their voice in various settings. The sessions will be conducted on a private 1:1 basis and incorporate the Estill Method and Linklater approach.


The voice sessions have enabled Deelee, as a practitioner, to concentrate on the client's vocal strengths and weaknesses. This would also encompass delivering vital information regarding their vocal health and delivery. She has worked with clients from different cultural backgrounds who have encountered problems with speech, accent/ dialects, articulation, and vocal production. Her teaching method comprises simple and effective breathing and vocal exercises, accompanied by bodywork and limber exercises, in order to encourage clients and students to improve and balance their vocal production through movement and breathing.


As a musician and singer, Deelee has always possessed a great passion for voice, singing, and storytelling alongside vocal pedagogy. She enjoys exploring current themes through continuous research and study to build upon her knowledge and experience as a voice practitioner and firmly believes that this would serve as a valuable contribution to her growth and development as a performer and practitioner.
She is in favour of combining effective methods in order to implement and produce an efficient and creative teaching strategy and aims to utilise her creative skills and artistic abilities to support novices to reach their maximum potential creatively through using the voice as a creative outlet.


Deelee utilises a holistic approach to singing, performing, and creating music, and vocal health operates as an imperative element of her teaching method.

Singing and voice sessions are conducted at her South London practice ONLY.

Vocal Insight™ Est. 2004 with support from the Prince's Trust.

Anna
Saxophone, clarinet and music theory lessons for all levels and ages
Anna is an active performer and music tutor based in London. Originally trained as a classical clarinettist, she later took up saxophone as she drew closer to jazz and improvised music, then trained in jazz saxophone at the Perugia Conservatory of Music in Italy. Here she also studied the fundamentals of piano accompaniment and took second study classical clarinet. She is now a versatile player involved in a range of projects in the jazz, RnB, hip hop, afrobeat, funk and fusion genres. Anna is available to teach from absolute beginner to pre-university level inclusive, from the age of seven upwards. In your first lesson she will aim to get a good understanding of your level, strengths and areas to improve in, what your learning style is and what your musical interests are. A variety of activities and materials in a range of musical styles will be provided with the space for you to choose which work best for you. She will also discuss with you your goals and your musical experience or current activity, thus being able to cover appropriate elements in lessons and ultimately enabling you to get the most possible out of each lesson and your personal practice time. For classical clarinet and saxophone students (up to Trinity Guildhall grade 8 inclusive), lessons will obviously be more centred towards the execution of written works, covering repertoire from the Baroque period to the works of contemporary composers. Exam repertoire can also be studied optionally, if the student wishes to participate in graded examinations (Trinity Guildhall). Jazz or contemporary saxophone students will focus on developing their ear and internalising chord-scale theory, studying elements of music theory where necessary and exploring improvisation, transcription and their own musical vocabulary. There is also the option of working towards Trinity Guildhall graded examinations. Theory-exclusive lessons are available, covering exam-board courses as well as jazz theory and general areas of interest. All-rounder students are also more than welcome - they will cover a mix of styles and skills according to their taste, though never neglecting technique and fundamentals of the instrument. Beginner and absolute beginners, not to worry! Anna will take you through your first steps on your instrument, getting you playing from day one, always ensuring that good technique is learned early on. Lessons follow your pace so it doesn’t matter how quick of a learner you are or how much time you’re able to put into home practice - once one skill is well-internalised you will be able to move onto the next, securing steady progress whilst putting into practice lessons already learnt.

Felipe
Singing lessons: Vocal technique oriented to diferrent styles. (Opera, Jazz, Pop, Rock) Breath managment, body consciousness, placement.
I´m a profesional Opera Singer, who is also giving lessons in vocal technique since 7 years. This class is for begginers and intermedium level singers who want to improve the manage of their voices. The class starts with different vocalizations and breathing exercises to warm the body and start to understand how the voice works. Then we start to sing in order to apply the new concepts to different songs. The class its adaptable to every pupil, because everyone has their one vocal history, which means, they have different problem, which need differents aproaches.

Emma
Learn to Sing with a qualified Opera Singer with 6+ years experience
Whether you're a beginner who just wants a confidence boost, or someone with a music background who wants to take your technique up a notch, I'd be so happy to make music with you! The principles of music-based vocal & breath work have such power, & will not only make you feel more oxygenated, but will bring out a strength of voice & character that you didn't know you possessed! I am/have been Vocal Coach at 2 Independent Girls High Schools, 2 Preparatory schools (one of which is all-boys), and teach several homeschoolers (one of whom lives in Zambia, and is online). I'm confident that I can give you the same sound pedagogical experience online that you would receive on site. Here's what one of my pupils from 2019 had to say: "I have always loved singing, but never had the confidence to follow through with my passion. As an adult it can be pretty daunting. I had a couple of lessons with Emma, & through her encouragement, patience & great teaching skills, my confidence grew .. She inspired me to believe in myself and my ability to sing, especially when I did not believe it myself. She is a tremendously positive, engaging & fun teacher, & I always came out of her lessons feeling better than I had walking in, & looking forward to the next lesson!" Colleagues of mine at schools that I teach at have said of my lessons: " It is a privilege to listen to you teach. I have never heard sounds like that coming from our department!" So what are you waiting for? Join me online, from a safe and sunny home studio, & let's start from where you're at, make music, & have FUN doing it!

I believe everyone can sing, and I believe that everyone could sing greatly if they are patient and put work in it." - Dominyka "I promise that with our singing lessons you will learn more about your own voice and that you will develop your own sound as a singer. We work on warm ups/warm downs, breath support, vowel placement, vocal effects, vocal colour, dynamics, articulation, stage presence, high notes - power singing (belting), and so much more. My goal is to have a good time and spend our lesson's time wisely while we achieve the best results within singing. If there is a need I can also help you to broaden your knowledge about the repertoire that is suiting to your voice colour, recording sessions, live performance situations, "a workout plan for singing", songwriting/composing, music theory, and such."

Nathalie
Piano (classical - jazz/pop) and/or vocal (jazz/pop) lessons
Hello and welcome to my music studio! It is absolutely fabulous that you are interested in music, and I hope you have lots and lots of fun with it! However, diving into the wonders of the piano/keyboard can be a bit overwhelming... and that is where I come in! This course is for anyone from complete beginners to advanced students, from lessons that focus completely on classical music to lessons that include or focus on the basics of jazz/pop. If you like to sing, we can also work on the basics of jazz/pop vocal, so you can learn to accompany yourself at the piano. In our lessons, technique will be an inherent part of the training, as well as analysis, basic music theory, and efficient ways of practicing music. If that all sounds good to you, then please reach out to me and we can start ASAP! Lessons can be in English or Dutch. So who am I? In a nutshell, I am a professional pianist, vocalist, lyricist and blogger. Since 2014, I have taught in various music schools, teaching piano, ensemble, jazz vocal, and solfege. On a more elaborate note, I obtained my Master of Arts in classical piano, summa cum laude, at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent (KASK) in 2017, and studied as a Fulbrighter at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington USA during the 2019-2020 academic year. Every day, I strive to become a better musician and person, and I aim to transfer that passion to my students.

Olivia
Discover your voice with professional singer Olivia! (Classical, pop, musical theatre, opera!)
Are you curious about singing, but feel like you don’t know where to start? Do you already have some experience of singing and are curious about what your voice could achieve at its full potential? Do you feel shy about your voice and wish you could feel confident enough to sing in front of other people? I am Olivia, a professional opera singer who is passionate about teaching singers a healthy vocal technique in all styles of singing, and helping them to grow in confidence along the way. My teaching room is a safe space where students are free to experiment, make mistakes and discover everything about their voice with my full support! I have been teaching singing privately to pupils of all ages and levels for several years, as well as enjoying a busy performance career. I find that being a regular performer myself is very important when imparting knowledge and advice to my students because I want to teach you more than just the mechanics of singing - I want to guide you towards being an artist and expressing YOUR unique voice and personality. I work on vocal technique, drama and language, and have worked with children, teenagers, and adults - both those hoping to sing professionally and enthusiastic amateurs! Every lesson will include warmups and technical exercises as well as work on repertoire that we will choose together. I can teach in English, French or Italian. As for my performance experience: I began taking singing lessons at 13 years old after joining the school choir in secondary school in London, and adored the process of training my voice. In my teens, I performed in concerts as a soloist and also in a few musical theatre roles, most notably Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. I moved to Switzerland and trained as an opera singer at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Genève, and did a Specialised Masters (Soloist) at the Hochschule der Künste Bern. I have since gone on to perform with the opera houses of Geneva, Lausanne and Lucerne, the Opera House of Zrenjanin in Serbia, the Jeunesses Musicales Opera Studio (Croatia), London Grimeborn Festival, and have been a featured soloist at such concert venues as the Berlin Philharmonic, Salle Paderewski in Lausanne, the BFM in Geneva, the Cologne Philharmonic, and St Johns Smith Square in London. Most recently you may have seen me as Mrs P. in the Swiss première of Michael Nyman's 'The Man who mistook his Wife for a Hat' in Vevey, or if you've been enjoying the program 'Blob Opera' this year, you might be interested to know that I was one of the opera singers working on this project by recording hours of material for a machine to create an algorithm that recreating an opera singer's voice! Good singing is about solid and healthy vocal technique, a good feeling for music, self-expression and confidence! I would love to work with you to build all of these parts of yourself and to see where your voice takes you. If you have any questions, please do get in touch with me!

Opera singer offers lessons for Beginners and Professionals
My course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn to sing. This can be classical, jazz or pop singing. I teach online. I have students form all over the world - USA, India, Mexico, China, Germany, Romania, Italy, etc. Beginners, intermediate and professional singers who have technical difficulties will feel comfortable in my lessons.

I work with vocal exercises, breathing techniques and posture for the first 20-30 minutes and then with musical pieces. Repertoire will be chosen together with the student, paying special attention to the protection and development of his/her voice. I put special emphasis on expanding the voice range and interpretation.
