Katie Hector

 Private Teachers

I have been singing professionally for 18 years and coaching for the past decade in the UK and abroad up to degree level. I have toured as a lead singer and backing vocalist with Incognito, Chaka Khan, Emeli Sande (I also coached her as well as doing her backing vocals) Lou Reed, Jocelyn Brown and many more. I have worked in many guises as a session singer from studio recordings for major labels to television work. I also have put out my own music under the name Katie Leone which reached number 1 in the UK soul charts.

I specialise within the soul genre having worked so heavily within the UK soul scene however I am experienced in all contemporary mainstream styles and enjoy an eclectic mix of music myself.

My approach to lessons are creative and practical with a focus on delivery, style and vocal health. I enjoy helping people push beyond any limitations they may feel they have (either self imposed or because of negative past experiences).

I am not theoretically based so if you wish to sight sing or do grades I would be happy to recommend a great alternative.

Lessons are not for beginners but they will still be fun and relaxed and in an informal setting.
