I advise any singer to learn an instrument. Not only will it give you the ability to accompany yourself, but also it will help you with songwriting, recording, communicating with other musicians and your vocal performance. It'll help you become a better artist. Nearly all the greatest artists are great musicians, not just great singers: whether it's Prince, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Freddie Mercury, Ray Charles, John Lennon, Aretha Franklin, Pharrell Williams, Adele or Lady Gaga... Musicianship is so important. I teach a combination of standard classical piano grades along with the use of chords and scales to write, play and accompany contemporary music. I can also advise on finding great vocal, guitar, bass and drum teachers in and around London.
