Singing Lessons Brighton & Hove
Welcome to the Voice & Body Studio. My name is Adrian Ward and I 'm an experienced singing teacher and professional singer offering singing lessons in Brighton and Hove. I offer voice training to help you achieve your best and succeed in singing. I work with all ages from beginner to professional level. My aim is to give you a healthy and secure vocal technique whilst cultivating your own unique and natural sound.
My areas of expertise include:
I am also a qualified specialist in posture and movement and use the Alexander Technique to promote top vocal health and performance. To sing well requires a body and mind that co-ordinates, balances, breaths and moves freely. I offer specific voice sessions for singers to help develop an integrated body that supports a healthy technique
I also have a lot of experience working with adolescent singers, guiding them safely through the difficulties of voice transition.
I graduated with both Masters and Bachelor degree from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (London) in 2008, specialising in voice. I also attended the Guildhall's prestigious two year Opera School Programme. After leaving the Guildhall I went on to sing professionally for companies such as Glyndebourne Opera and Scottish Opera. My prizes include winner of the Royal Overseas Leagues Competition and YCAT (Young Concert Artist Trust) in London. I have been a finalist in the Kathleen Ferrier, Richard Tauber and Guildhall Gold Medal competitions. On the concert platform I have performed at many of the UK's major venues and with orchestras such as the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and the Northern sinfonia. In recital I given concerts at the Wigmore Hall, Oxford Lieder Festival and Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.
Playing an Instrument
I also work with people who wish to play a musical instrument with less effort and tension. Whatever instrument you play, it is important to recognise that how you use yourself directly effects the sound you make. A tight, held body leads to a tight and ugly sound. Together in a session we can identify how you can undo unhelpful tension which may also be contributing to pain when you play and stopping you from enjoying your playing.

Location of lessons
Singing lessons take place from my home space on Waterloo Street in Hove. The space is quiet with lots of natural light; the perfect environment for learning and tapping into your creativity.
Waterloo Street lies almost on the border between Brighton & Hove so it's conveniently central if you live locally. It's about 20 minute walk from either Brighton or Hove railway station. Norfolk Square is the nearest bus stop (3 minute walk) which is served by many major bus routes.
