Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you teach beginners?

Yes I do - helping a new student who is a total beginner is particularly enjoyable for me. Seeing them grow to love singing and reach goals they never thought they could is such a joy as a teacher!

Do you teach children?

I have taught children for many years and here at Singing Lessons Rotherham we teach children from about 7 years of age. As with all students, we encourage children to come for a lesson (usually a 30 minute slot) to develop their voice and confidence whilst having lots of fun singing their favourite songs. I also hold an enhanced DBS.

Where in Rotherham are you based?

I teach in our dedicated home studio located in Brinsworth, Rotherham, approximately 1 mile from Meadowhall Shopping Centre with regular bus links. There is easy access and ample free parking. Its an ideal location to have a relaxed and enjoyable lesson. Click on the map below to get my location on Google maps.

Do you have a waiting area?

Sorry, we don't have a waiting area, please arrive at your allotted lesson time so there's a smooth transition of students.

Can I accompany my child to their singing lesson?

Yes, I would encourage parents to come to their children's singing lessons, and go on the journey together. We have a sofa in our lesson studio and are happy to supply you with a cup of tea/coffee and biscuits. 

What songs will I sing?

Here at Singing Lessons Rotherham we feel it's important that you discover your unique singing voice whilst singing the songs you love. I will also introduce you to other songs and music styles, that will further develop your voice in line with your goals. I teach most styles but specialize in Pop, Soul, Musical Theatre and Jazz. 

Do I have to be able to read music?

Not at all! You can use either sheet music or lyric sheets, whatever you feel most comfortable with. If you are interested in learning how to read music, I am more than happy to teach you.

Can I have a lesson with my partner or friend?

Most definitely! It's a great way to learn how to sing and have lots of fun at the same time. Please contact me for further details.

Do you offer birthday and Christmas gift vouchers?

Yes I do. We have different styles of voucher for children and adults which can be posted directly to the recipient or the purchaser.

What if I need to cancel my lesson?

That's not a problem, if you cancel 48 hours before your booked lesson slot, we're happy to rearrange it. We have a cancellation policy whereby if you cancel within 48 hours, the full lesson fee will be required. 

I'm nervous about singing in front of someone!

This is very understandable, especially if you've never sang in front of someone before. But don't worry, my lessons are very relaxed, informal, and fun, and you'll soon feel at ease and your initial nerves will be a distant memory! 

Can I work towards a singing exam?

Yes, I can help prepare students for LCM (London College of Music) singing exams. However, there is no pressure to do singing exams, or performing etc.. Many people come for lessons just for the pure joy of singing, and to learn how to sing.

Beginners to Advanced Students

I love helping all students from the absolute beginner to the more advanced singer. Helping the beginner to find their voice and develop into a more confident singer, even to perform in front of an audience if they so wish. It’s so rewarding helping students to grow and learn to love singing. If you’re a confident singer who performs already and wishes to develop your voice more for stage or auditions, I can help! I have many years experience teaching all levels of singing.

Amanda helped me to build a solid technique while working on a variety of songs. Amanda crafted a programme of singing development specific to my interests and abilities. Lessons are varied and enjoyable, she doesn't ask you to do anything you're not capable of but she does challenge you. - Paul J
