WHAT WE DO.

 

ONE TO ONE LESSONS

If you are looking for a safe and supportive environment in which to discover and develop your singing skills, you can be assured that you have come to the right place when you book a lesson at Anna Leigh Vocal Studios. We can guarantee that in your first singing lesson you’ll get training that you won’t find anywhere else in the North East! This may include:

 

  • A recorded CD of your first lesson to practise along to at home, every lesson thereafter is recorded, students are asked to bring a memory stick to take their recording home. This makes learning faster and more effective. You can listen back to your recording and hear your improvement.

  • A personalised vocal assessment of your voice so you know exactly what is happening physically when you sing and why, explained clearly taking into account the age and and experience level of the student.

  • Structured vocal exercises tailored to your voice.

  • New vocal exercises every lesson based on how your voice advances from previous lessons.

  • We will work on songs that you want to be able to sing in any genre you choose. Including songs you find difficult and need help on.

  • Help and advice on performing and performance technique.

  • Advice on the music industry and how to progress as a singer and performer.

  • Advice and tips for students who are interested in songwriting and in developing their own music.

  • Opportunities to be involved in our two yearly shows, open mic and recording studio experiences.

 

Continuing lessons will be very similar in structure to your first singing lesson, but as you make progress, the vocal exercises will change to account for this. As you gain more confidence as a singer, we’ll be able to work on more challenging songs and constantly refine your voice in the process.  We’ll work with you to help you develop your own personal style and personality as a singer.

SKYPE LESSONS

Lessons are now available over Skype, a free internet calling service. These lessons work in a very similar way to normal “in person” lessons and all you need is a good microphone and camera set up on your computer.  We are very excited to be able to offer this service as it means you can have lessons from wherever you are!

Lessons in person are always better where possible, but if travelling is difficult for you then this is the answer. Payment for these lessons can be made using PayPal or bank transfer. Anna Leigh takes regular lessons via Skype from teachers in Cheshire, America and Canada. Please click here to make a Skype Booking.

 
 

RECORDING STUDIO VISITS

Would you like to experience recording your voice at a professional recording studio?

Throughout the year, Broadwater Studios open their doors to Anna Leigh’s students to professionally record one song. The song will be recorded by producers & mixed to top quality. Broadwater Studios are situated in Gateshead very close to Newcastle, Sunderland & Durham!

 

“Broadwater Studios provide the highest standards of recording experience and the best equipment available within a comfortable and creative environment.”

 

Students will rehearse during their private lessons prior to recording. At the recording studio, the students will have a 45 minute slot in the recording booth to sing their song. Their song will then be mixed and students can relax knowing that they will be tutored throughout the entire recording experience.

 

ALVS CONCERTS & CHARITY EVENTS

We run two concerts a year, one in the summer and one at Christmas. We usually have around 28 students per show, with a mixture of ages abilities and genres of music. These shows are all about getting up and having a go regardless of how experienced you are! We want to help students not just progress in their performance and singing abilities but their confidence in singing and within themselves!

We have great fun at the shows and our audiences are always very supportive and enjoy watching the students progress! We started these shows in 2012 because our students wanted a performance to work towards. We have found they have become 'more than just a show' but a networking event for our students too. Some have even described the atmosphere as like a family event and we love to see how supportive they are of each other.

We have also organised a range of charity events from an afternoon tea with songs for Marie Curie, to a karaoke night for Peary House for the blind. We also regularly donate lessons as prizes for charity raffles and events to help fundraising initiatives in our local community. 

Check out our pictures from past performances here and look out for information on our next shows by checking out our facebook page. If you feel nervous about performing why not come along and see what its all about!
