Sing With Koo
‘Spread Your Wings, Use Your Voice’
Vocal Classes With Koo. Singer, Songwriter, Producer & Performer
I am a globally established singer, songwriter, producer & performer based in Leicestershire. I stepped into my first vocal class at a tender age of 5, as part of a theatre school which I attended until I was in my late teens. The theatre school was made up of the disciplines of Acting, Dancing and Singing, it was very beneficial in establishing confidence in young people. I also had private vocal tuition alongside my school work from various established industry singers, travelling around the UK for my sessions. Alongside my private lessons, at the dance school I performed at, I represented the school during national shows as a vocalist.
I then attended College and completed a National Diploma in Dance. There were always opportunities for me to sing in the shows they held in their theatre.
Since the age of 18, I have been working successfully as a Singer, Songwriter, Producer & Performer around the world. During 2012, I was a contestant on ‘The Voice UK’ and I was part of team will.i.am. The show built on my confidence as a performer and provided me with an abundance of opportunities to perform and grow. It was a huge learning curve and on the strength of my performances and a lot of hard-work I am now self-employed, working as an artist and musician.
My experience includes travelling to Europe and working with various DJs and producers from across the globe. My affiliations include will.i.am & DJ Afrojack. I supply vocals and lyrics for multiple producers on Skrillex’s label. I’ve even taken part in live T.V. on the release of my E.P. in London.
I am now very keen to pass on my knowledge and expertise to aspiring singers of all ages and endeavor to do my best as a vocal coach to aid them in finding their way in the industry, whatever pathway that may be.
‘The biggest thing we can do with our lives is to help others. Use your voice’.
Having already taught children for a local theatre school based in Leicestershire, I have the necessary teaching skills and know how to get the best out of each individual by drawing upon these. I have experience in helping build up confidence to
perform, which includes:
- Using techniques to assist in strengthening the voice.
- Finding their ‘unique’…. Every voice is different and should be treated as E.g. Style and range.
- Advising age old techniques to encourage looking after their voice, which is so important.
I can also help with coaching on how to prepare for auditions, shows and castings.
It is sometimes about being aware of what the agents and casting directors are looking for. There are lots of avenues you can take as a performer and knowing how to manage each one, can increase the chances of success.
My aim is to help, prepare and give insight. It’s important to me that kids find their own voice and realise that not all of them will pursue a career in singing. Some will be paid for voice over work, commercial ads, the field is vast. I have been accredited as a vocalist with a unique sound which gave me the confidence and belief to keep singing, keep writing and keep performing. With my help, I believe I can help anybody find their sound.
By now, you’re probably wondering, who is Koo?! Where can I hear her work, what does she sound like..
Take a moment to check out my bio.
Lets get to work.
Pop, Commercial & Songwriter
Description: The idea is based around singing current pop songs that are part of the industry right now and hearing which sounds work best for the individual’s style & range. We will also explore other avenues, to help them find their niche and passion.
For the older children (8+), we will work on helping them to build upon their songwriting skills – if they want to venture into that! For this I will help with song structure, lyrics, styles and all the extra trimmings that will help them to stand out when writing music!
Musical Theatre, Act Out & Auditions
Description: During these classes we will focus on vocalising all different types of musical theatre – from classic, to traditional, to contemporary, to rock. We will also work on how to act during vocal performances which will in turn lead to prepping for auditions, ensuring your little one is not only a singer, but one who can act.
I also offer emotional and physical support on the audition day, indeed if I can I will offer to take pupils to give them some continuity and friendly support.
