About Rachel BMUS in Vocals from Canterbury University
For me, singing is all about happiness, self expression and a way to connect with others. I am all about everyone feeling empowered to use their voice. And also about building community by singing together and sharing our talents.
I decided to get into music about 15 years ago when I realised the work I was doing wasn’t making me happy. The first thing step I made was doing Nikky Berry’s “Reclaim Your Voice” course. Then I joined world music choir A Capellago. Then I did the Hagley Jazz course. From there I progressed to study at the CPIT Jazz School and then finished my degree at Canterbury University. I began teaching one-on-one while I was at Jazz School and haven’t stopped. I really love supporting people to find their voice and their joy, in singing.
I like working with students of all ages, especially beginners or people feeling vulnerable about singing. I am compassionate and fun, playful, bossy and knowledgeable.
Specialising in the Following
For those singers who are keen to get comfortable singing in front of others we have performance nights every 5 weeks. In a relaxed, supportive environment we sing for each other and trusted friends. This is a great space to experiment with performing and sharing what you’ve been learning, its amazing how much confidence you can build by putting yourself out there and having a positive experience.
