Our Tutors

Here at Singing Lessons Glasgow, we are fortunate to work with additional singing teachers, Nia Coleman and Brian McBride, to help cater for the high numbers of students interested in learning to sing and develop their vocal abilities. I am pleased to introduce Nia and Brian to you further below:

Nia Coleman

Nia Coleman

Teacher Bio:

I am a Glasgow-based singing teacher, Master of Music from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland; Master of Arts from the Royal Academy of Music, and First class Music and Drama graduate of Manchester University. I have taught singing lessons regularly since 2012 as both a private tutor visiting student’s homes and as a member of the peripatetic music staff team at the Primary Schools in London and Sussex. Since arriving in Glasgow I have continued my private teaching and am looking to build up this practice.

I am also a classically trained singer and experienced in song, opera and music theatre. I enjoy teaching students across a range of ages and experience and I am enthusiastic about the dedication required to tailor lessons to meet the unique needs and enjoyment of every individual.

I have experience teaching singing on a one-to-one basis for pupils ranging from ages five to sixty-five years of age. I am confident in, not to mention enthusiastic about, tailoring each lesson to the individual’s needs, goals, interests and existing potential.

My experience of teaching whilst performing professionally myself has inspired me to develop a teaching method by which I can effectively utilize my levels of expertise to give every student of mine the best possible quality training whilst nurturing a fun and relaxed atmosphere centered around an enjoyable experience for each individual in which they can thrive.

I have also taught mature students ranging from the age of 21 – 60+. These students ranged from professionals(some of whom were actors looking to improve their singing skill-set for auditions and maximize casting potential) to keen amateurs interested in pursuing a hobby for the sheer joy of it!

Equally for those interested in singing purely for fun, without the pressure of exams, then I am delighted to facilitate this too! Either way, lessons should be enjoyable and stimulating!

Brian McBride

Brian McBride

Teacher Bio:

I am an experienced Vocal Coach based in Pollockshields, 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!
