Audition Preparation Sessions in North West London

I offer Private Audition Preparation Session in North West London. I have a huge amount of experience at preparing children and young adults for auditions, both for academic placements and roles in musical theatre.

Recent Student Success Stories

After intensive lessons over a two year period studying jazz harmony, chord melody playing and sight reading together, my student Ethan Davey was recently offered a scholarship for Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. He headed to the USA in September 2018 as part of a three-year degree program and I couldn’t be more proud of him!

Recently two of my students, Selma Hansen and Oscar Rice, landed spots in the West End production of School of Rock after successful auditions following preparatory lessons with me. In particular, Selma (who was a young guitar player) was asked to audition for the part of bass player and took intensive lessons with me over a two week period leading up to the auditions to familiarise herself with the instrument; she subsequently went on to not only land the part but was also performing as a member of the cast that won the 2017 Outstanding Achievement in Music Olivier award.
