Singing Lessons

“I am a woman in her fifties who was told at the age of 13 in school that I was tone deaf and asked to mime rather than sing in their concerts and services.  I have not sung a single note since that day – not even with my husband and daughter on day trips in the car.  That is until I found Nick.  I was shaking on that first day when I went to his house for a trial lesson, however I found someone who was friendly, welcoming and encouraging.  Nick is someone who immediately puts you at ease and more importantly gives you the confidence to have a go.  He makes me laugh and in the sanctuary of his music room, I felt able to put all of my psychological hang-ups about singing in front of people to one side.  The first time I sang a note out loud was an incredible feeling. I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time.  After all these years, Nick is actually teaching me to be able to sing in tune – can you believe that! I am now working with Nick towards being able to sing (not mime) in the church at my daughters wedding which will be a very special moment for me and for my family.

Singing Lessons in Eastleigh, Chandlers Ford, Winchester, Southampton

Have you been told you can’t sing?

Do you lack the confidence to sing in front of people or even just yourself?

Think that you are  “tone deaf”?

I can teach you to sing in tunes AND with confidence!

I teach people just like you, people who want to sing but for some reason or other find it hard or even impossible.Working with you in a very positive and encouraging environment focusing on your confidence.

Four years ago I started teaching people to sing who had not been able to hold a tune previously. This has developed to a complete programme of techniques and practice that I been improving on since. I am now convinced, more than ever, that I can teach anyone to sing in tune and with confidence!  

Teaching privately in my studio in Eastleigh, I have a wealth of experience teaching people just like you. I help them overcome their shyness and gain the confidence to sing in front of other people. I am a full time private guitar, bass and singing teacher, musician and performer. 

The youngest student I teach is 6 and the oldest is over 60, so I can accommodate any age. So if you have a youngster who wants to learn, or you’re an older student who would benefit from lessons from an experienced tutor and working musician then please get in touch.

” I was full of trepidation the first time I went, but Nick makes the hour so much fun, and I have built up my confidence to the point that I will join in singing Happy Birthday instead of just miming in the background. If you’ve always felt you’d like to sing but can’t, give it a go. Nick will help you find your voice.”

Past students have gone on to join choirs, join in at family get togethers, sing with partners and friends.

“Hi Nick. I just wanted to say a big thank you. I am still slightly in a daze! I can’t quite believe that I’ve finally started to learn to sing! If anyone had told me that this morning when I got up i would not have believed them!  But you are exactly the person I need to give me the confidence to do this! So thank you again very much. Best wishes Sarah”

So if you’re one of those people who was told to stand at the back of the choir, who lack confidence, has been the butt of jokes about your voice, think you are “tone deaf” or simply need a little guidance, please get in touch.

I can “fix you”, I can give you your voice.

I teach at my studio in Eastleigh Hampshire and can offer free parking.

Most of my students start with a 30 *minute introductory lesson before they book regular 60 minute lessons.

I charge £25 for 30 minute lessons (*including the introductory lesson) and £35 for an hour.

I really love my singing lessons with Nick, and when I look back over the 18 months  I’ve been having them I can see how far I’ve come. Not only has it uncovered an ability I didn’t know I had,  I have found my confidence overall has improved as well . I’ve rekindled my love of music and have even pushed myself to sing with a band, with Nicks support. I would never have thought I would love it as much as I do, considering I just thought I would give it a go to see if I could sing a bit better. Nicks passion and ability for what he does is always evident and I’m really pleased I took the plunge with this and gave it a go.

  1. I always thought I couldn’t sing, but after having a few lessons with Nick, I built up my confidence, and have even joined a choir! Singing is so rewarding and uplifting, and lessons with Nick were fun and relaxed. I’m so glad he helped me discover the singer within me.

  2. Nick’s lessons were great fun and full of practical advice. Some of our group were confident singers already, with specific problems they wanted to address whilst others were complete novices, Nick was able to help everyone – we all learnt a lot.

  3. I have been told during many years that I could not sing.
    But thanks to Nick, I can now sing. And it is never too late to start, I’m a 52 yrs old french lady.
    Nick gives confidence. He is enthusiastic, and positive.
    Having him playing guitar when you sing does help a lot. It allows to adapt each song to each person.
    Each lesson is always a great pleasure. Thank you Nick!

  4. I have always found it very difficult to sing in front of people but since going to Nick, I have gained a lot of confidence. I never thought I would be able to sing in front of anyone but he gave me the strength to do so. I really enjoy the lessons; they are very stimulating and leave you with a sense of pride!
