Hello, welcome to Sing Out Sister! I’m Christabel Cossins and I have been teaching singing one to one, and in groups, for 17 years to budding singers of all ages and abilities. I focus on technique, vocal health, confidence and having FUN with your voice! I have had many, many pupils over the years who have started out as very shy singers but who blossomed into confident, proficient performers.
When people find out what I do for a living, the question I get asked most often is:
“Can anyone learn to sing?”
The answer I always give is that EVERYONE can improve with great technique and confidence! Why confidence? Everything is done better when approached with confidence and singing is no exception. Lack of confidence tends to lead to closed mouths, poor posture, an inhibited sound, less creativity and a tendency to judge your own voice which can really be a hindrance during a performance.
So, if you love singing and fancy yourself as the next big thing or simply want the confidence to join in with “Happy Birthday”, whether you are an experienced singer or an absolute beginner, singing lessons are a fantastic and fun way to improve both your voice and your confidence.
I’ve taught singing and performing arts to many, many people for many, many years and teaching singing, and performing as a singer, are still my great loves and passions. I hope I can inspire you or your child to love singing as much as I do.
