Catrin Woodruff

Singing Lessons Glasgow Teacher - Catrin Woodruff

Teacher Bio:

Hello! My name is Catrin and I am a classically trained soprano, currently studying on the Opera course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. An experienced tutor, I enjoy working with aspiring singers of all ages and abilities in order to help people sing the music they love in the healthiest way possible.

I am happy to work on a wide range of repertoire, including opera and classical pieces, musical theatre repertoire, pop and film music, jazz standards and anything in between. I can also help prepare pupils for concerts and exams, and teach the building blocks of music to anyone wanting to learn how to read music and get a grasp of basic music theory.

I have taught privately for a number of years, and have also held posts in various schools as a peripatetic singing teacher. My pupils all sing for pleasure, but I have also helped many of them to attain qualifications at a high level.

Many of my pupils have taken ABRSM singing exams, from Prep Test to Grade 8 standard, with a 100% pass rate. I have also helped past pupils to secure choral scholarships at Oxford University and places at the BRIT School. I would be delighted to help you to improve your singing ability, to book a lesson with me simply email catrinwoodruff@singinglessonsglasgow.com.

Brian McBride

Singing Lessons Glasgow Teacher - Brian McBride

Teacher Bio:

Hello! My name is Brian and I am an experienced Vocal Coach based in central Glasgow where I specialise in training singers in classical, pop/rock and musical theatre. My firm knowledge of classical technique allows me to ensure that each student is progressing to their highest standard whilst maintaining an understanding and grasp of good technique that is required for a healthy, sustainable sound. I have an intelligible grasp of the mechanics of the voice which allows me to discover, with each student, where their true voice lies. Once that has been developed, the next task is to allow that voice to grow through technical exercises specific to the singers needs and exploring repertoire to sing. As a classical performer myself, I have a passion for discovering, nurturing and encouraging each individual who is looking to discover or develop their voice. My lessons are upbeat, involved, fun and encouraging.

As the lessons develop I encourage, though it is certainly not compulsory, some students to progress through an examination board of their choice (ABRSM, high school, LCM, TRINITY) suited to the style he or she sings in. I am determined with each student that he or she gains the highest mark that they are able to achieve and I am happy that with this work ethic all my students have a 100% pass rate thus far. I also have a vast knowledge of the different musical programmes offered around Scotland if you wish to audition for further education. I have prepared a number of students for schools such as Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Stage School of Scotland, GAMTA, Motherwell, MGA Academy and further afield in the London colleges. It is important that you are happy in your lessons and that you are getting from it what you desire - this can be from a hobby and fun experience, to building the steps toward a career in singing. I have a true love for my job and hope that I pass on my passion for singing to my students - remember, everyone has a voice, you only need to discover it and let it grow.

Each voice is different and each student’s goals will be as well, I will help you find your voice as a singer, enabling you to reach your full singing potential! All lessons are tailored to the individual needs of the student whether following a syllabus and sitting exams such as ABRSM or Trinity or if just to build up the courage to sing Karaoke! I would be more than happy to teach you to sing if you are interested, to book a lesson with me simply email brianmcbride@singinglessonsglasgow.com.
