SING SING voice lessons and vocal groups are run by local professional jazz/latin singer Karen Lane. Karen has extensive performance experience for corporate clients including Microsoft, Daimler Chrysler, British Airways, Prudential, Saab, Toyota, and Sky TV. With her band she has performed in many cities including Berlin, Paris, Cape Town, Nice, Bucharest and Monaco.

Prior to embarking on her singing career she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Speech and Language Therapy in Perth, Western Australia. She moved to Sydney in 1991 and, whilst working as a speech therapist and private singing teacher, sang in various jazz bands and soul outfits.

Since moving to London, Karen has focused on singing jazz and has established a considerable following, with the release of four successful albums. Whilst “live” singing has always remained a priority, for 5 years she worked in the music department of the City Literary Institute for adult learning in Covent Garden, teaching “Find Your Voice” and jazz singing. During 2006 and 2007 she acted as a consultant to the ACM – Guildford (Academy of Contemporary Music) lecturing in vocal technique to degree level students.

She has continued to develop her teaching business, and now works primarily as a private vocal coach for singers and corporate professionals wishing to improve their vocal impact.

It is unusual to find a vocal coach with such a range of anatomical knowledge and understanding of the science behind how the voice works. Her experience as a speech language therapist gives her a unique perspective from which to teach singing, and this, combined with her professional experience as a singer, gives her a clear insight into the difficulties singers face with regard to protecting, maintaining and refining their instrument.
