About Singing Lessons Exeter

About Singing Lessons Exeter

Chris has had a love of singing for as long as he can remember, having sung in choirs since primary school. He was a part of an Essex-based group, Kids Choir 2000, where he first experienced the live entertainment experience, touring local events and even appearing in a music video with the group. Chris took serveral years out of singing whilst at secondary school, however the opportunity to be in a school musical revived the love of performing in him. He began taking lessons and over the course of three years went from very little “natural talent" to an ABRSM grade 8 standard singer.

Chris has a love of all things creative. He founded and runs an arts company (Individual Arts) where he specialises in directing theatre, as well as working as a freelance actor for other companies. He also has several years of film experience, having produced trailers, theatre-on-film productions, and has worked with a local band to produce a music video.

Whilst Chris cut his teeth on musical theatre, he soon fell in love with music of all kinds. He taught himself music theory and begun joining ensembles that specialised in diverse repertoire, which has meant that he has worked in styles as varied as African Gospel to blues to Opera. At the University of Exeter, Chris became a music scholar whilst studying a degree in drama. One of his personal highlights was singing the opening solo line of the Verdi Requiem in his first concert with the Scholars Ensemble.

It was also at this time when Chris became a member of the worship team at a contemporary church in Exeter, The River Church, where he now helps lead sung worship most Sundays. This has led to Chris being used on the church’s EP as a principle vocalist. In recent years he has also become an experienced singing tutor helping all ages and abilties develop their vocal ability. Covering a huge range of different styles his student's learn through singing the songs that they are passionate about - teaching from his studio located in Exeter city centre.

Chris loves to get to know people and put them at ease so if you don’t feel up to a full lesson just yet feel free to get in contact for a coffee meet up (or tea if you prefer). He prides himself on being approachable, patient and most importantly structured with his singing lessons, whether you’re a complete beginner or if you’ve been singing for years!
