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.
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. "
Daniela is amazing! I felt improvements in only a few weeks. I didn’t like the sound of my voice when I started but she has given me the confidence to let others hear my voice and feel better about myself. The lessons are always fun and personal and the songs chosen are challenging but also picked for what you enjoy. These lessons are the highlight of my week and I wouldn't go anywhere else. "
I have been taking classes with Sam at City Vocal Coach for a while now and cannot believe how much I have improved. Sam’s classes are fun, personal and professional. He genuinely enjoys teaching and is very experienced and knowledgeable. I see real improvement after each session and because of this I look forward to come back each week to get better and better. "
When I started my classes with Valentina, I had been studying singing for quite a while, yet I had some bad habits, a non-developed voice and no awareness of it. With her, we started a journey which is helping me to discover my voice - as well as get rid of my bad singing habits - helping me to achieve a well-supported and healthy voice with good technique, creating awareness of my strengths and weaknesses and how I can improve more and more every day. Valentina is great! "
Daniela is a great teacher. She is full of enthusiasm and great energy. She has been teaching my daughter for more than a year and she did not only improve her singing skills but also her creativity and confidence! My daughter adores her and together they compose great music! She started to teach my husband a few months ago and he is also learning and having a great time with her. I highly recommend her! "
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. "
Valentina has been teaching me for nearly two years now and I have noticed a significant difference in my singing. I’ve appreciated her friendliness and professionalism. She makes her student feel at ease and comfortable in her lessons, whilst fitting in a lot of knowledge in just an hour; I learn so much every lesson! "
I love singing but have terrible stage fright. Daniela was able to see what I needed straight away, and every lesson I am progressing. She has provided me with excellent guidance regarding singing techniques, we have written some music together, and she has taught me heaps of great little tricks of the trade. We always have FUN, and every lesson feels like a therapy session. Most importantly, she has been able to help me out of my shell, to find my confidence and to be able to just enjoy singing. I will be forever grateful! "
Sam is the best music teacher I've ever had! He is so friendly, supportive, encouraging and knowledgeable. Best of all, he helped me challenge myself and enabled me to become more confident in my singing. I didn't expect to have results so quickly. Compared to 2 months ago, I now have more vocal strength and emotion in my singing and I tire less easily. I strongly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve singing. He is super flexible and adapts his teaching methods to the student's needs. "
I’ve been having singing lessons with Valentina for over two years now and they’re one of the best parts of my week. As well as being a fantastic teacher she has a real knack for being able to explain things in a way that makes me understand exactly what a sound should feel like, she is empathetic and encouraging which is so important when you’re as nervous about performing as I am!
