Professional singing lessons within 60 minutes of North Wales

One of the UK's most respected and sought-after vocal coaches, Andy Follin is located in St Helens. As the only Certified Master Teacher (CMT) of Estill Voice Training™ (EVT) working in the North and West of the UK, Andy is bringing this revolutionary singing technique to singers in the North Wales area for the first time. Before now, students had to travel to London or Glasgow to receive such high-class vocal coaching.

Singing lessons with Andy will give you complete control over your voice, allowing you to sing in any style, in any repertoire, all with complete skill, understanding and control.

Whether you sing Musicals, Opera, Pop, Rock, Jazz, Gospel or even Worship, Andy will give you the knowledge of how your voice works, and how to apply it to each unique style.
