Specialist in Classical and Opera Singing.
A brief outline of areas covered in Singing/Voice Lessons may include (according to the individual):
Throughout a successful international solo performing career in Opera, Concert, TV, Radio and Recital, Thora is passionate about teaching students of all abilities from the complete beginner and those that wish to sing for their own enjoyment and or personal challenge, to the consummate professional. She believes in an honest, encouraging, down to earth, 'no gimmicks' approach to teaching.
With over 40 years of experience in both performing and teaching, of high standards, a passion for music and education in general, and extensive knowledge of her craft she has developed an empathic and effective way of teaching. Her approach is both technical and holistic. Thora's lessons focus on 'How to Sing', encouraging students to explore and become aware of their individual vocal range, abilities, capabilities and to fulfil their potential while protecting their voice from the strains and demands of all styles of singing.
Thora draws on the experience of having studied, throughout her singing career, the Italian bel canto style and of being a highly qualified Teacher and Performer. She is also able to pass on to her students the invaluable wealth of knowledge she has gained over the years from working with some of the world's finest conductors and producers.
At the age of 18, she gained a coveted place at the highly prestigious Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (now the Royal Scottish Conservatoire) graduating with honours in both Teaching and Performing. After graduating from the Academy she went on to gain a Post Graduate Senior School Music Teaching qualification from St. Andrew's College, Glasgow. Alongside her early Performing Career, she continued to teach, direct and conduct in Schools, and Academies of Music and Drama in Scotland and was a Singing Teacher and Vocal Coach at the well known Mountview Theatre School, London.
Whilst teaching she continued to pursue her Professional Singing career and after being offered a contract with Scottish Opera she won a coveted place to study at the world-renowned National Opera Studio, London after which her Singing Career 'took off' (see her Biography page for more details of her performing career).
Thora is a registered teacher and member of the International Society of Musicians and holds a current DBS certificate and SafeGuard Training
I have worked with Thora both as a teacher and colleague and continue to be most impressed by her dedication and talent.Gillian Knight (International mezzo soprano,The Royal Opera and D'Oyly Carte Opera)
