About Me

I gained a scholarship to study classical singing at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and later another scholarship supported my opera studies at the Royal Academy of Music.

​In all, my studies lasted 8 years and I worked with many of the finest coaches and teachers in the world. My education included training in bel canto vocal technique, general musicianship, acting, dance ( tap, jazz, baroque ) stagecraft, stage fighting, acting and elocution, as well as French, German and Italian.

I have taught singing for 30 years and my work has been diverse. I have worked with professional singers, students, children and adults with a range of additional needs. I am currently CEO of the Robert Poulton Foundation, which is a charity that promotes and creates opportunities for singing in community based projects. I am a passionate advocate of singing and its capacity to instil wellbeing.

As part of my CPD I have completed both the Vocal Health First Aid and the Vocal Habilitation Professional course, which are provided by Vocal Health Education.
