Learn to sing - properly


If you're new to singing, it's vitally important that you're taught the fundamentals correctly. If you're searching the net, looking for advice on how to sing, you'll already know that there's a lot of conflicting advice out there. Andy will ensure that you learn the basics - steadily, at your own pace, allowing you the time and freedom to explore what your voice can do, rather than trying to force you to sing in a way that makes no sense to you.

With Estill Voice Training™, the singer is empowered to make their own choices, to use their voice in a natural way, and to take ownership of their own artistry. Learning to sing with Andy will ensure that you get the voice you always wanted - the voice you always knew was in there somewhere!

…what sound do I want to create, and which structures do I need to control to create that sound?

Learn more about the voice


One of the guiding principles of Estill Voice Training™ is 'knowledge is power'. Knowing how your voice works is a good thing! Estill replaces mystery and imagery with precise anatomical information and gives the singer a high degree of control over their voice.

Opera singers do not sound like Pop or Musical Theatre singers. Estill Voice Training™ can explain how and why they sing as they do. No matter what kind of music you sing - Musicals, Opera, Pop, Rock, Jazz, Gospel or Worship - EVT can explain the subtle (and not-so subtle!) differences between styles and give you the ability to choose exactly how you want to sing.

If you've ever wondered why your voice always seems to do the wrong thing, or if you don't know what's going to happen from one gig to the next, singing lessons with Andy Follin could be just what you need.

Unlike 'traditional' singing lessons, which focus on one musical style or genre, Estill Voice Training™ can explain the requirements of any type of singing - and show you how to achieve it, quickly and simply.

Learn to cross over genres


These days, all successful singers are multi-skilled. It's no longer sufficient to be able to sing in just one style or genre. By adding more 'strings to your bow' you're making yourself a much more commercial proposition. Why lose out on a contract, just because you didn't know how to Belt the end of 'Memory'? If you're a Classical singer looking to move into Musicals, or a Pop singer who wants to knock out some Jazz standards, Andy will help you understand the differences between each style, and give you the freedom to use your voice in any way you choose.

Prepare for an audition


If you're an experienced singer, or a dancer who occasionally has to sing, you're probably not looking for regular singing lessons. But we all get nervous before auditions, so sometimes a vocal 'MOT' can be just what you need to make sure everything is where it should be! If you've an important audition coming up, why not book a one-off session with Andy and get yourself in perfect shape?

Practice Estill Figures - Estill Practice Groups


If you've been on an Estill Level 1 or Level 2 course and are looking to practice the things you studied, or maybe understand them a little better, Andy's Practice Groups may be what you need! Join other Estill pupils in a relaxed, informal environment where the aim is to develop your voice, your vocal skills - and simply have fun! For those wishing to take their studies of Estill further, Andy can also help you prepare for your Certificate of Figure Proficiency (CFP).

Just sing better!


If you just want to be the best singer you can be, Andy will give you everything you need to be a confident, multi-skilled, successful singer! All lessons are personally tailored to ensure you get exactly what you want and need - in as short a time as possible.

Professional Singing lessons in North West England

Andy is a professional vocal coach, not a school teacher or piano teacher doing a few singing lessons in their spare time. Unlike a lot of voice teachers, Andy does not insist on long-term tuition, where students have to attend regular lessons, repeating the same exercises until their voice improves. You can attend as often as you like, but there's no compulsion to attend every week or every fortnight. In fact, many students find that a singing lesson every 4 to 6 weeks suits their needs.

Estill Voice Training™ is known for producing quick results. Quite often, Andy finds that long-standing problems can be fixed in the first few lessons. At your first session, Andy will give you an assessment of your abilities and draw up a singing lesson development plan that ensures you get to where you want to be, as quickly as possible.

If you're ready to take your voice to the next level, book a singing lesson with Andy today (see bottom of page).

Andy runs his studio from St Helens, so is ideally located for students in the Liverpool, Merseyside, Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire areas. Please check out the separate pages for students from Liverpool, Merseyside, Warrington, Widnes / Runcorn, Wigan, Cheshire, Lancashire and North Wales.

Record your lesson


If you want to record your lesson (either the entire session or specific sections) or just have a recording of your performance to take home, simply bring along a USB memory stick and Andy can record you directly through the system.

You'll have a CD quality .wav format recording which you can then burn to disc or upload.
