Leigh is an experienced, qualified Singing Teacher and Performance Coach based in Colchester, Essex, UK.  As an Estill Master Trainer, she is able to offer a clear diagnostic of the voice, which offers her students and clients a better understanding of their instrument, knowledge of how to use it safely and get the most from it. 
Lessons are tailored around your individuals needs.   Musical styles covered include Music Theatre, Pop, Rock, R'n'B, Soul, Country, Jazz and Classical.  For your peace of mind she has a full DBS check (formally known as CRB) and holds public liability insurance.  Leigh is member of the MU (Musicians Union), BVA (British Voice Association) and AoToS (Association of Teachers of Singing) and attends regular workshops and conferences to continue her professional development in all areas of voice science, singing and performance.  She is also the Colchester representative for the London College of Music Exams with her teaching studio being the exam centre for Colchester. 

Estill Voice Training is a state of the art, comprehensive approach to voice training for singers, speakers, actors, voice teachers, voice clinicians - ANYONE interested in voice!  Based on the most current voice research, EVT is a simple and direct approach that not only allows one to identify and control (with learning and practice) the various parts of the voice that create ANY sound in any style (Pop, Rock, Operatic, Country, Musical Theatre etc.), but also debunks many of the myths that have surrounded voice training for the past 400 years!

Some benefits of EVT:  Replaces mystery with knowledge; Reduces performance anxiety, increases confidence; Empowers students to take charge of their own learning, technique and choices; Allows for greater vocal versatility; Brings consistency to your vocal performance; Leads to a balance between vocal health and aesthetic freedom.

"As an experienced stage and function band vocalist, I have had to rely on an arsenal of techniques to maintain vocal health and move quickly from one style to another.  I believe any singer should have the freedom to sing whatever they would like to sing to the best of their ability. 

Understanding how your voice works, to achieve different vocal qualities, whether you want to become a marketable recording artist, classical singer or stage performer, I will help equip you with the tools you need to develop your voice accordingly.  I keep up to date with all the latest research and am passionate about anything to do with the voice and singing!"

Keeping up to date 

As well as a sound and proven understanding of the Estill model, Leigh is always continuing to develop her knowledge of vocal pedagogy with regular courses and workshops to expand her knowledge and effectiveness to be the best teacher she can possibly be.  Expanding into voice therapy, currently building up her hours in a clinical setting with the habilitation of the injured singer or speaker, she is able to provide a broader range of professional and amateur voice users, expertise to overcome misuse of the voice and appropriate voice and body work to create healthier habits.  After an initial consultation or assessment lesson, she may refer you on to an appropriate ENT specialist or SLT clinic if you are experiencing vocal trauma or dysphonia before a course of voice lessons can commence, to ensure there are no conditions that may require medical treatment.   

LMT Singers Showcases are an opportunity to perform for a friendly audience made up of your family and friends.  The shows are designed to showcase what you have been learning and the songs you have been working on as you grow your singing skillset.  It is so confidence boosting to show your progression, hone your live performance experience and can help you conquer any fears of judgement by getting up on the stage and giving it your all and hearing the appreciate audience cheer and clap at the end of your song!    

Opportunities to sing as a soloist, in duets, trios, small and large group songs.  A great way to gain live experience, overcome stage fright, make new friends and reach your vocal goals.
