NINA FERRO - SINGING LESSONS AND VOCAL COACHING.
The lessons specialize and improve upon your already existing natural talent. You'll learn to create better singing habits leading to a stronger more healthier voice so can be singing into your 80's
The lessons will take you through the following:
Expanding your range, placement of voice, Breath control, Pitch control, understanding chest, mix and head voice, ear training, Stage performance, microphone technique, harmony work, improvisation, projection.
I began my voice training as a classical singer from the age of 15 and from there moved onto Jazz vocal studies at the Victorian College of the Arts.
I have over 20 years experience as a vocalist, songwriter, recording and session artist in the jazz, soul, contemporary techniques of singing and have been teaching privately one-on-one for over 12 years.
My training blends the foundations of the classical Bel Canto method of singing I was taught, with those of the a more contemporary style to ensure safe, effective and sustainable singing no matter what the style.
As a vocal teacher, I work with beginner and intermediate levels developing the foundations of good, effective technique. As a vocal coach, I work with more advanced singers and established artists by assisting in the up keep of their vocal health and the maintenance of good vocal habits through their established repertoire.
I teach predominantly from home in North London. I am happy to travel to a private residence depending on location (a fee for travel will be added to the hourly rate).
1 hour - £40, three quarters of an hour - £35,
half an hour - £30
"I have really enjoyed the lessons so far. Having had a few singing lessons in the past - it is exciting that you are telling me things I have never heard before and a lot of it I recognise as "Yes I do do that" I can definitely see that I am going to get results from your lessons which is very exciting" Rachel O'Reilly
"I'm really enjoying my lessons with Nina - firstly, its amazing how breathing technique can change your singing and speaking so much! Its great to learn from someone who's been through the stuff herself and knows exactly how to resolve any problems - it has been revolutionary! I'm looking forward to more. Thank you." Anna Bernard.

THE SMALL PRINT
The initial session is a consultation and runs between 45-60 minutes. During this time I take a brief musical history, establish what you would like to achieve out of your lessons and decide on which direction to take. I will then demonstrate a model of teaching that I hope will enable you to progress in the direction of your choosing. Subsequent sessions will be 30, 45 or 60 minutes duration depending on negotiation. Sessions can be weekly or fortnightly. Regularity is highly recommended, as it keeps motivation up and continuity of learning moving forward.
The fee for each session including the consultation is £30 for 30 mins, £35 for 45mins and £40 for 60 mins, paid in cash during each session.
