SMS provides exceptional quality vocal tuition for both adults and children across Sussex.
Whatever your age singing lessons will bring a sense of enjoyment, achievement and well-being.
Many adults are returning to singing lessons as a way of relaxing after a busy day. There are also opportunities to join a local choir, making it a social activity. Singing a piece by Mozart, a folk song you love or a Jazz standard can also bring a number of health benefits including lowering anxiety, improving sleep, posture and immunity, improving aerobic capacity, and reducing stress as well as giving great personal pleasure.
Children love to sing because of the wide range of pieces and styles available and also the myriad of opportunities there are to perform with others. Every band needs a singer so you are always in demand! There is great opportunity for improvisation and song writing as well as a huge classical repertoire to master. Singing lessons can also enhance skills in mathematics, memory, concentration, resilience and creativity. What’s more, there’s no needs to buy an instrument!
SMS teachers bring out the creative side of their students and will design a study programme based on each individual pupil’s needs – there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach or ‘method’. Practise books and concert opportunities for those who want them, will be provided.
A list of our current teachers is supplied below. SMS is adding to our teacher database all the time so not all current teachers will necessarily be listed.
