At City Vocal Coach, we provide expert singing and songwriting tuition from our studio in Shoreditch, East London. Teaching regularly at the BRIT School for Performing Arts and at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, we’re dedicated to getting the best out of our students.
We believe that it is important to give our students the best tuition possible. Which is why at City Vocal Coach we don't just stick to one way of teaching, one technique or one method but will introduce and discuss with our students a wide range of ideas, pinpointing and developing the most effective for the student.
I've been taking singing lessons all my life but only when I started taking lessons with Sam I realised that I started actually learning valuable skills. My voice was improving after every single lesson and after just two months it became noticeably powerful, open, bright, and effortless; I can sing for hours without getting tired.
More importantly, however, Sam does not teach singing technique only, he teaches creativity and musical independence which find invaluable and extremely rare! "

As an anxious trainee teacher in a secondary school I suffered with incredibly poor vocal health. I had been a bedroom singer all my life and thought singing lessons might improve my voice. I was incredibly nervous but was quickly made to feel at ease and free to give my gravelly voice a whirl. Although I was adamant it was just wear and tear from teaching, Valentina's knowledge and expertise convinced me to go to the doctors and insist on further investigation. I did indeed have a huge cyst on my left vocal fold which was causing the distinct 'breathiness' Valentina had identified on our first lesson. I would never have got it sorted if it hadn't been for her initial advice. Her continued personal interest during my recovery was very well appreciated as not many people understood how uncomfortable and upsetting it could be. I recently returned to our lessons and am thoroughly enjoying the extra thirteen notes I have gained! Cannot thank her enough :) "
Daniela and I have work for over two years now with improving the range, quality and tone of my voice to great success. Daniela is innovative and comes up with new ways to make me realise that I can do it and the best way to get there. I'm now flying through songs that I would never have tried before. This has ultimately given me a lot more confidence and improved not only my voice to be more powerful and versatile but also improved my songwriting, as I now have access to a better instrument to use in my writing. Daniela is highly recommended! "
More than just a singing teacher. A gifted mentor who encourages my confidence in each lesson. The improvement in my natural vocal abilities since taking lessons with Sam is beyond measure. "
My vocal coach Sam recently recommended a great songwriting coach for me, Jonathan Whiskerd from ICMP, and I can honestly say that I have never looked back. As a songwriter it is really important to progress and understand that great songs are done simply and skilfully. Jonathan is giving me all the tools I need to be a better songwriter, he is helping me understand how to get my message across effectively and he understands what it is like to be a creator. "
