Liz Harley

Liz Harley is both an accomplished singer in her own right, and one of the leading professional singing teachers/coaches in the UK.

Liz started The Voice Studio in 1995 in Hertfordshire with the aim of encouraging singers - from beginners to professional performers - to explore their true vocal potential. In 2014 she moved to Edinburgh and opened Edinburgh Voice Studio while still retaining clients in Hertfordshire and London.

In 2015 Liz re-located to Hertfordshire and is now working from her studio in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire. Liz works with singers (from the age of 12) covering all aspects of vocal technique including repertoire, confidence and performance skills.

She works in many different genres/styles including classical, music theatre, jazz, rock and pop and helps with preparations for exams, auditions and performances.

Those who may never have sung before and would like to know more about their voice or wish to explore their singing/vocal potential are equally welcome.

One to one lessons are available from 26.00 GBP per 30 mins and 23.00 GBP for full-time students and young people under the age of 18. People book and pay as they go, so there is no requirement to pay in advance or book a series of lessons.

Lesson times are Monday-Saturday, see website for details:

  Excellent Coach , 16-10-2016 12:25AM

Liz Harley is an excellent voice coach and singing teacher. Excellence defined in many ways:

* Her vast experience
* Her constant updating of knowledge
* Her supportive approach
* Her desire to see you succeed
* Her ability to unleash your potential

I have been a singing student of Lizs for about 2 years (I hadnt sung for about 30 years - since school) and her teaching has enabled me to progress in leaps and bounds with 4 performances already under my belt.

She has helped me bring back the joy of singing into my life!

I greatly enjoy my singing lessons with Liz - not only because she is an excellent teacher, but also because her lessons are such fun.

Liz has a first class understanding of technique from her own training at the Guildhall, and also because she keeps up to date with modern research and investigation into the art of singing. She does not assume that any one particular technique or method is better than another - rather, she works with you to find out which is better suited to the individual.

One of the more enjoyable aspects of her lessons is that she encourages you to bring your own choice of music, but still gives suggestions as to what might be suitable. However, the style is up to you!

During the year or so I have been studying with Liz, my voice has improved no end - in normal speech as well as when singing! The vocal training has also helped when giving presentations at work, using techniques such as projection and resonance.

I really enjoy working with Liz, I started lessons just over three years ago and the difference Liz has helped me to make is amazing.

I had very little confidence in my ability when I started and the prospect of singing in front of anyone else meant I was a shaking wreck! Liz has worked with me to improve my technique and more importantly my confidence to the point where I now rather enjoy singing to an audience!

We have worked on different styles so there has always been lots of variety to keep up the interest. Liz has made it easy for me, as someone who does not read music, to get to grips with all the music we have worked on.

In 2007 Liz was fantastic in supporting me to achieve a great result in my grade 5 music theatre exam, something which I am truly proud about achieving!

The lessons are fun, innovative and challenging as Liz finds ways to extend my horizons. I always leave feeling better than I did when I arrived!
