Retro Singer



I will help you find your voice, develop your style, improve your vocal technique, breathing, vocal 'tricks', performance skills, stage presence, singing with confidence, how to tell a story through a song, emotional connection, microphone technique and more.

Being a therapist as well as a vocal coach, I will help you to work through any blocks that may be currently getting in the way - so your voice and confidence can flourish fully.

I cover a range of styles from pop, soul and jazz to musical theatre. Lessons will be geared to YOUR personal requirements. Adults and children all welcome.


''I sang the song we've been doing to my daughter this morning. When I finished she gave me a huge hug and said ' I never knew you could sing like that!' Thank you for being such a great teacher Anita.'' Nicola M-S, Saltdean.

''Just attended one of Anita's performance workshops with my sister. Anita is a brilliant and patient teacher. We both came away having learnt a lot to help us singing in public, with some very useful tips and tricks to assist us.'' Karen H, Brighton.

''I love singing, but didn't have the confidence to sing in public. After a series of lessons with Anita, I now feel like I know who I am as a singer and finally feel confident enough to sing at open mics. I will never look back!''

'' I am a professional singer. I came to Anita because I kept leaving gigs with a sore throat and was wondering what I was doing wrong. Anita was amazing at assessing what I was doing wrong and helped me get rid off the bad habits I had built up over the years. Problem completely solved. Thanks Anita!''

Lessons take place in Rottingdean in a beautiful, peaceful venue overlooking the sea. 

Lessons are £60/hr. Discount for block bookings.
