Qualified teacher of Singing, Trumpet and Music Theory

Avalon
£40 per hour

    Harlesden, North West London

I am a professional soprano and music tutor based in London. I read Music at the University of York, graduating with a First Class Honours in 2015, and am currently studying for a Masters at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with a scholarship. After graduating, I forged a busy schedule teaching across the East Midlands and singing professionally. I was awarded a VOCES8 Scholarship in 2016, as well as Stile Antico's prestigious inaugural bursary for young singers in 2015.

Music education is very important to me, and this year, I cofounded a new annual music festival, Leicester MusicFest, taking on the role of Events Coordinator. I am also a Junior Fellow at Aberystwyth MusicFest.

I know that by performing professionally myself, I am able to offer real insight, and a fresh approach to my students. I offer tuition in Singing, Trumpet and Music Theory. Why not come for a consultation lesson?


Tutoring / Teaching Experience

I have been teaching one-to-one singing, trumpet and music theory since graduating from university in 2015, both privately and in schools. My time has been divided between teaching and performing myself across the country.

I am currently studying part-time for a Masters in Performance (with scholarship) at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and teaching across London.

Avalon Summerfield is a highly skilful and motivational young singing teacher, who, in the short time I have been having lessons, has provided me with a wealth of new knowledge. From learning correct breathing techniques, relaxation of the face, throat and tongue muscles, to scaling new heights in terms of voice range, and a fascinating insight into the mechanics of vibrato, Avalon has helped and guided me every step of the way. And most importantly for me, a nervous amateur, she has made the whole experience such fun! Helen Simmonds Sent from my iPad

Avalon is an excellent singing teacher, and I have been delighted to send a number of pupils to her over the past two years. I have observed some of her lessons, and have always been impressed with her perceptive and adaptive approach to each individual singer. Avalon has an enviable knack of prioritising just the right technical improvements to benefit her students in a logical and healthy way, all delivered with patience, good humour, and a clear determination to bring out the best in everyone. She is conscientious, well prepared, inventive, and above all a very fine musician. I recommend her to you wholeheartedly.
