I’ll work out where to put it soon but for now I’ll put it here…
Rebecca loves empowering people to release their voice. Working together with each student, using technical exercises and Yoda-like skills, gleaned along her own learning journey, she will smash through the barriers that inhibit your full vocal potential. She is unnervingly obsessed about freeing singing voices.
Rebecca trained at QMW, CSSD and BSA, and worked as an actress in her early 20s performing at theatres such as Jermyn Street Theatre and the Shaw Theatre. Throughout this time Rebecca was also honing her singing craft through singing lessons with Mark Meylan and sharing her original songs at open mic nights in Birmingham and London.
In her mid 20s she became more drawn towards singing, performing with jazz and pop groups and shortly after began teaching singing. Rebecca has taught singing since 2004 and ran choirs since 2005. She has established 5 choirs and now is Musical Director of Cantare Choir Birmingham. She has arranged over 40 songs for these choirs to sing.
Rebecca has constantly sought out varied training, including certifying in Estill Training, (CFP) and training with the British Voice Association (BVA) as well as attaining lots of Diplomas. Rebecca is a Licentiate of the London College of Music in Music Theatre and has achieved their teaching diploma at Associate level.
Rebecca has performed many solo cabaret shows, and has also toured them locally. She current organises and MCs the scratch/open mic night “Cabaret Needs You Birmingham” and is putting together a tour of her original musical Baby Brained.
