All things music
Warm, encouraging and supportive, I’m a professional vocal coach and guitar teacher. With years of recording, touring and performing experience, I love sharing my skills and passion for music, offering singing and guitar lessons in Norwich, Norfolk, UK for all ages.
I can tailor the lesson for you in a fun, relaxed environment that also ensure you’re equipped with a range of techniques.
I can help you prepare for an upcoming audition or performance and learn various vocal techniques and exercises. You can also record your vocals and make quality demo recordings. I can also help you with your nerves, breathing and help build your confidence. In 2015 one of my talented vocal students, Breeze Redwine, won the Pre Teen Awardat TeenStar, the UK’s biggest search for teenage and pre-teen singers at Birmingham’s NEC. She also achieved the highest score of the night from the prestigious industry judges and beautifully performed my song ‘Here Alone’
In 2016 she released her debut single called ‘Courage’ which I wrote for her. The music video has had thousands of views on YouTube and is released on iTunes through Proper.
She also recently won many awards at the World Championships of Performing Arts, an international performing arts talent competition and educational experience held annually in Hollywood. Among her many achievements, Breeze won 4 Golds, 2 Silvers and Overall Champion twice. She also won an Industry Award, meaning she is most likely to makeit in the music industry.
“Lisa has been an amazing vocal coach to my daughter Breeze. She has been having lessons for over 2 years and worked wonders with Breeze’s confidence, performance, breath control and vocal ability. She’s guided her through difficult songs and different styles while being constantly supportive and encouraging as well as regularly sending exercises and backing tracks. She has provided invaluable guidance and support for when Breeze has had major auditions in London and across the UK and Breeze recently won the Pre Teen Award at the prestigious national Teen Star competition at Birmingham’s NEC. Lisa has also been teaching Breeze guitar and she is already on her way to playing lots of songs. Thank you Lisa. We couldn’t have done it without you.” Jackie Redwine

“Since having singing lessons with Lisa, I’ve noticed dramatic changes in my voice, for example I always used to sing from my throat and I’d run out of breath very, very quickly. Lisa has sent me vocal exercises and backing tracks to practise at home, which I find very useful in preparation for the next lesson. It’s a great hobby, and it’s something that I look forward to doing each fortnight, which is quite funny because I actually have a singing phobia, but Lisa’s teaching style puts me at ease. Ann Marie Harrison
”Lisa has really helped me with my vocals and given me so much more confidence with my singing. She has shown me some great vocal techniques which have really improved my singing.” Kate Yuill
“Before I started having singing sessions with Lisa, I didn’t feel confident anymore at my ability to sing. Since having the sessions with Lisa, she has helped me to gain my confidence back, she is friendly and approachable. She has shown me how to strengthen my breathing skills and support my core vocal ability and head voice. Sharing her vocal warm ups and techniques to attempt some challenging songs…Lisa is helping me to prepare for a big audition and thanks to Lisa the song I have chosen is broadening my vocal ability to a higher standard, Lisa is being patient and providing me with some really supportive feedback to progress further.” Rachael Francis
“My 10 year old daughter, Saskia, has been having guitar and singing lessons with Lisa. Within weeks of starting she went from not being able to play a thing to singing and playing many of her favourite songs. Since then she has gone from strength to strength. Lisa has been a real inspiration to Saskia. She knows how to connect with children. She’s vibrant and fun but at the same time nurturing and attentive. It’s a real pleasure to hear my daughter perform. Thanks Lisa.” Kerry Williams
“I have been attending vocal lessons with Lisa for about a year now, as a student at Access To Music I was looking for some extra support with my vocals. Lisa is honest, patient and understanding of my vocal needs. I have learnt what my voice is capable of, breathing technique’s and warm up exercise’s. All of these contribute to my new found confidence with regards to my singing. I would highly recommend Lisa for all your vocal needs.” Karl Moore

Located in the North Norfolk village of Roughton, I offer bespoke Guitar Tuition to players of all ages and abilities, whether you're an absolute beginner, an intermediate player who just lacks direction, or an advanced guitarist looking to improve your technique.
My speciality is Classical Guitar, and to date I have entered well in excess of 200 candidates for Trinity College graded examinations, with a 100% pass rate, from initial to grade 8. Whilst many players love to work towards their grades, some players simply enjoy playing for the love of the music, and tailored lessons mean that these students can learn whatever style inspires them.
Also available are acoustic and rock guitar lessons, particularly useful for those wanting to play in a band or write their own songs.
All the songs on this Norfolk Heroes CD were composed by Bob Wright who has lived in Cromer most of his life. Most of the songs are true stories of people and places around Norfolk and give a good account of life in Norfolk past and present. To purchase this CD please click here .
