£30 per hour or £20 per half hour

Wayne has been coaching vocals for the last 5 years; working with everyone from beginners to accomplished singers needing to hone their vocal technique. His approach whilst based on a classical technique, is not operatic and the main focus is vocalising without strain or tension, projecting the voice through correct placing and bringing out the best in YOUR voice.

He also offers keyboard/piano tuition and again, this is not classical but focusses more on improvisation, playing by chord charts, playing in the context of a band and studio setting.  Wayne is based in Palmers Green but is also able to travel.
