Professional vocalists & coaches based in Lutterworth, Leicestershire.



Specialist in all areas of voice, including range extending, vocal health, belting, and more, including music business & artist development.

I have been singing for at least 15 years and have studied at numerous music institutes with my most recent one being in Brighton. Here, I polished up on my craft at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music, where I was awarded my Honorary Degree in Professional Musicianship (Specialising in vocals). This is the same academy that has seen the likes of George Ezra, James Bay, Tom Odell, The Kooks, Marina & The Diamonds, and many more into today’s charts.

I have worked alongside some incredible practitioners, and over the years, have developed a huge network in the music industry and have even featured singing on BBC South news, Cross Counties Radio, and interviewed on BBC Radio Leicester. I have been trained by vocal & industry experts throughout the years; Elliot May (lead vocalist on ‘Do Your Thing’ by Basement Jaxx, which reached No.24 in the UK charts in 2005), Kieron Pepper (was responsible for the drums during The Prodigy live shows between 1997 - 2007) and was trained by and currently working closely with Georgia Train for performance boot-camps - Georgia has worked alongside and performed with the likes of; Burt Bacharach, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Kaiser Chiefs, Tim Minchin and more!


I have worked for the music industry in royalty distribution at PPL & PRS, focusing on the music business and copyright laws. Here, I supported the industry in ensuring that all music practitioners in the UK were granted the royalties they rightly deserved. Keeping the industry thriving and ensuring that the value of music was educated throughout the country. Here, I had the honor of having the CEO of PPL UK in the audience at one of my vocal performances.

Since my career at PPL PRS, I took the decision to go full time into my freelance work and run a thriving business in private bespoke vocal coaching & launching the 'Let's Get Loud' choir with Ben Steer (Fellow vocal coach), (serving all of Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, and Coventry as well as online) offering all clients full support in their vocal development. This is all done alongside my performance work; Weddings, festivals, corporate performances, and more. Resulting in me performing to over 4,000 people at the Lutterworth Christmas Lights Switch on. 


I’ve been working with students of all ages and abilities and guiding them as they increase their practical and theoretical skills. I love sharing my passion with others and am so grateful that I get to do this incredible job every single day.

Ben Steer

Vocal Coach at Purdey's Singing Academy

Specialist in songwriting, music theory and more!


In 2019 I graduated from the University of Liverpool with first-class honours in Popular Music. I have spent a lot of time honing my craft as a songwriter and performer.

As a guitarist and singer for over 12 years, I have often taught others in group settings as well as one on one.​

I also have the pleasure of running the 'Let's Get Loud' Choir in Lutterworth - This is so much fun and really enjoy seeing everyone getting the best out of their singing, and each other! 

Songwriting is also something I'm hugely passionate about and can specialise in 

From beginner to intermediate singers, I want to work with you to achieve the goals we set together to improve your music knowledge and singing. Learning to sing should be enjoyable and rewarding so I aim to keep the process this way!
