TEACHER AND DIRECTOR AT CITY VOCAL COACH

SAM TEACHES FROM THE CVC STUDIO IN BRICK LANE, EAST LONDON

Since I began studying singing fifteen years ago I have been lucky enough to have been taught by some of the most renowned teachers in the singing and voice work profession throughout the world. I now teach the methods and techniques that I have found to be essential to any singer no matter what genre, be it classical, pop, rock, jazz or blues. I teach at the incredible BRIT School for Performing Arts where every day I get to teach and work with some of the most talented people I have ever met. Through teaching and study I have developed unique and extremely useful vocal techniques that have been essential to the development of over two hundred singers and I am very keen to share these with you. Some of my students have gone on to do great things most recently Imani Williams whos single Dont need no money is being played a lot on radio at the moment and FONX a great singer songwriter who is just about to release his debut album.

BEVERLY TAWIAH SONGWRITING TEACHER

BEVERLY TEACHES FROM HER STUDIO IN BRIXTON (SOUTH LONDON)

The South Londoner was thrust into industry spotlight when Mark Ronson personally requested she tour with him as the front woman and voice of his touring band on his 2007 worldwide tour. For some time, she was entrusted to lend her voice to songs made famous by Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen, and Mary J. Blige. Remarkably, Tawiah had embarked on a series of global tours before she had even begun any serious recording work, regularly substituting for Amy Winehouse during performances of Ronson's biggest hit, 'Valerie' in front of a crowd of thousands. rnrnIn 2008, Tawiah independently released her debut EP In Jodi's Bedroom which quickly became a cult favorite on Britains underground music scene, ultimately winning her Gilles Petersons Radio 1 Worldwide Award for Best Newcomer. Her song "Watch Out" was subsequently voted the 2nd best song of the year by his station. "Every Step", the second single from her self released EP, went on to make iTunes single of the week. rnrnIn 2011, Tawiah was featured on Cee Lo Green's official remix for "I Want You" and filmed a documentary with Mark Ronson and Guy Chambers for the BBC. Wale tapped her to release a remake of the Method Man featuring Mary J Blige hit "All I Need". She later went on to perform live with Mark Ronson and Erykah Badu capping off an amazing early career stint. Tawiah has spent the last few years writing, recording and polishing her own brand of alternative soul.
