About Me

Rebecca Schwarz Singing Teacher, Birmingham, Worcestershire, UK

I love empowering people to release their voices.  I may use technical exercises or Yoda-like  mind tricks but together we will smash through the barriers that inhibit your full vocal release.  It’s what I live for.  I’m unnervingly obsessed about freeing singing voices. 

When I was a young child I was that shy kid who didn’t say boo to a goose but I sang, very loudly in my bedroom every night.  I was loud! I played musical instruments from aged 4 but I didn’t feel that I was a singer. 

It wasn’t until I was 23 and I worked with a singing teacher, Mark, who changed my life that I started to think that I could have a voice that I loved. 

That teacher changed my life and that’s what I want to do for the singers I work with.  I want to give them the gift of loving singing.
