Lydia has trained through various avenues of singing technique. With a strong start in musical theatre training at the age of 15, she has also learnt folk, classical technique and repertoire and of course now has a masters in Jazz Singing from Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Her teaching method is centred around building up healthy support of the voice, exploring expression through lyrics and connecting to the music. She aims to break down barriers through singing and inspire new-found confidence in the voice.
Lydia’s ‘first instrument’ was always piano as a young musician. With 20 years of classical piano playing under her belt, she has a lot to share with her students. She teaches from beginner to advanced level, and has students ranging from 4 to 50. Learning piano goes hand in hand with learning music theory, which is always a feature of Lydia’s teaching. Through a good knowledge of theory, expression and good practise technique, a good pianist is made.
CLARINET/ALTO SAX LESSONS
Learning the clarinet from age 10 has given Lydia many extra opportunities in her musical life. From orchestral tours, to woodwind competitions, playing in a musical at the Edinburgh Fringe and in a big band at university, it has certainly kept her busy musically. Her passion for the clarinet goes beyond learning grades, as she strives to always teach how to connect with the instrument and make a beautiful sound. Using her advanced clarinet skills she is also self-taught on the alto saxophone.
