Hello there, my name is Gillian Newman and I am a professional singer and singing teacher living in Liverpool. Although I now specialise in vocal technique, as a singer I have a versatile voice, and have over 30 years’ experience, starting out as a teenager in pop, then onto rock, jazz, Irish folk then classical/musical theatre. I have been a member of various bands, choirs, two opera companies and have performed in venues throughout Liverpool and the Northwest. I now pass this valuable wealth of experience as a singer/performer on to my students.
I hold a BA (hons) degree in Music/Vocal Performance, and also studied songwriting, composition, harmony and arranging. I also hold a HND in Performing Arts, which further strengthens my understanding of musical theatre, the voice and the mind of the performer. I have ten years’ experience working with children and choirs teaching peripatetically in schools throughout the Liverpool and Merseyside area. Presently, I work with a diverse set of students including; primary aged children, eager amateur singers, performing arts students, band members and professional singers. As well as teaching privately, I am the singing teacher at music schools throughout Merseyside and hold a fully enhanced CRB certificate.
I teach one-to-one private singing lessons in my studio in Allerton, Liverpool, The Music Development, Wavertree, Liverpool or Musical Allsorts, The Widnes Masonic Hall, Merseyside.
I am of a very warm, approachable, easy-going nature, which helps me get the best out of my students whether they are just an enthusiastic beginner, a jobbing band member or a professional.
