T e a c h i n g

I teach in partnership with my amazing wife www.paulasides.com and for us, teaching is a hugely important a part of our singing careers. We give regular singing lessons to amateurs and professionals (all voice types) in Kensal Rise, Marylebone Studios and Jacques Samuel Pianos. 
Methodology
My teaching methods are scientifically informed, but without too much jargon (unless you're interested!). I use effective physical and psychological exercises in order to develop efficient vocal habits. I have attended the following courses:
Training in Classical Voice with Janice Chapman
Exploring Breathing Methodology with Ron Morris Tension Release (British Voice Association)
Amateur Singers
I co-founded and am the Vocal Consultant to Sloane Square Choral Society, where I teach several of the choir members. Please do get in touch if you would like a lesson: benwilliamsoncountertenor@gmail.com
Semi Professional / Professional Singers
I teach the choral scholars at Sloane Square Choral Society and have helped many pupils successfully audition for Music College postgraduate courses. I am very familiar with the technical difficulties that arise from choral singing, and have spent many years understanding and correcting them, to allow the voice full freedom and expression. I follow a scientific model of singing, but without complicated technical descriptions. I use simple language, clear concepts and effective exercises. If you would a consultation lesson, please email: benwilliamsoncountertenor@gmail.com
Conservertoire Audition Preparation Studio (CAPS)
 
Paula and I run monthly masterclasses, usually on the first Saturday of each month, 2-5pm. It is an opportunity for singers to work on their performance skills and audition technique. These are particularly suited to people applying to music college. Each person has 30mins to sing one or two pieces, and everyone is included when not singing. There is a pianist and singing is optionally filmed for individual use. The cost is around £70. If you would like to be on the CAPS mailing list, which will also include information about mock auditions, please email
