 Private Teachers

Private independent singing teachers and vocal coaches

As a teacher I have been teaching singing, guitar, songwriting and piano for 12 years privately. Over 60 new pupils in the last two years ranging from 8 to 50 years old. Since arriving in LA I have become fairly sought after…Some recent clients include Hilary Swank, Matt Damon and Conan O’Brien

I focus mainly on breathing, sight reading, phrasing, posture and projection and am experienced in classical, musical theatre and contemporary pop music.

Trained under my father, Simon Carrington who was a founder member of the award winning a cappella group The Kings Singers. Awarded a choral scholarship to Salisbury Cathedral and a music scholarship to Bryanston. Subsequently trained at LAMDA where I assisted the vocal staff in helping students with their singing techniques.
