Vocal tuition led by a teacher with live performance & studio recording experience; helping you become the performer you never knew was within you.
Welcome to my website. My name is Polly Strange and I am a professional singer & singing teacher. I’m experienced teaching most styles of singing, particularly pop/rock, musical theatre and classical. Most of my professional work is as a session singing in the pop/EDM sector but I’ve taught a lot of musical theatre singers previously at Wilkes Academy of Performing Arts, and now as part of the singing faculty at SLP College.
Lessons are open to all aged 8 and above. All abilities and levels of experience from total beginner to seasoned pro are catered for.
I deliver tuition that focusses on:
Well established, physiologically sound modern vocal techniques.
Pop/rock music theory and notation skills.
The development of listening, analytical and interpretational aural skills.
Songwriting & development.
Improvisation/ad lib/riffing skills to create imaginative and individual performers.
Performance skills and confidence building.
Create & singing harmonies.
Creating opportunities to take graded musical exams (classical, pop/rock, musical theatre)- although this is optional and is up to the individual.
Recording technique and the opportunities to record within your lessons.
You can also incorporate a some beginner piano skills into your lessons for songwriting & accompaniment. (Please note however that I do not offer tuition to those who just wish to play the piano.)
Singing lessons can also help children's speech & language development; and lyric reading can be excellent reading practice for all children but particularly those who are having difficulties reading or find it stressful- the singing makes them forget that they are reading too!
