Emily Rose - Vocal Coach

Emily's Experience:

Emily began stage school at a very young age but didn’t begin to truly understand the abilities of her voice until she started one to one lessons with her vocal coach in South Wales. It was with this devoted teacher that taught her how to control and expand her voice all while taking her from grade three all the way up to a Diploma in Musical Theatre singing. Emily's singing teachers passion is what inspired Emily to help others find their voice. 

Emily has studied may genres including: Rock, Pop, RnB, Folk, Soul and Blues.


Emily "The best thing about one to one tuition is that the lesson is tailored around what you want. So if your goal is to sing a song for an audition or to expand your range, or even to build confidence while on stage, whatever it is, that’s what we will work on".
