Singing Lessons with Lydia 

My method of teaching is based on the fine-tuning of a combination of elements that work simultaneously to create your individual most perfect sound.


When the body has the right balance of relaxation, focus and support, the voice is liberated, enabling the singer to communicate to their audience with finesse and ease.


Once the singer has mastered the basics of my technique, they will find that their range expands, the support is strong and reliable, and their breath control becomes automatic.


I have had the joy to witness time and time again how persevering with these basic rules of technique can give a singer the confidence to deliver their optimal performance at all times. 


I teach from my music studio in Hanwell, West London, W7.


Hanwell is easily accessible by car (M4, M40, A4, A40, or via the Uxbridge Road).

Hanwell station is on the Elizabeth Line, only 19 minutes from the centre of London (Bond Street).

Boston Manor tube (Piccadilly line) is a 5-minute bus ride (E8, 195).

Ealing Broadway is 15 minutes away by several regular bus services. (427, 207, 607, 83, E8)
