Helena Kean

 Private Teachers

Private independent singing teachers and vocal coaches

Helena began her professional training after a visit to Bari in Southern Italy, where she was invited to join the Bari Choir for a BBC broadcast, in which her Italian hosts were participating.

Following work experience with Opera North, and two years post-graduate studies at Conservatoire, Helena trained with renowned contralto and teacher Jean Allister. She specialised in the performance of classical song recitals and has now retired from her performing career.

As a teacher for the last 8 years she has coached professional and semi-professional singers, specializing in breathing techniques and foreign language performance. She also works with companies and business people to improve presentation skills and vocal empowerment.

Lessons are usually taught at your home. Fees include travel within 8 mile radius of Burnley, travel expenses will be charged for greater distances.

Initial voice assessment required £50

As a qualified linguist I also offer foreign language coaching in French, German, Spanish and Italian.
