THE SINGING PRACTICE

The Singing Practice was founded by Sarah Foubert in 2016. What originally started as a solo endeavour from Sarah's living room has grown into a business which offers both face-to-face and online tuition in multiple locations, covering a variety of music related subjects and with a fantastic team of highly experienced personal tutors.

At The Singing Practice vocal health is paramount. We hope to not only encourage you in your passion for singing, but to teach you about how to use your instrument in a healthy way so you will be able to sing for many years to come.

SARAH HELENA FOUBERT

Founder & Singing Teacher

Hi, I'm Sarah and I'm the founder of The Singing Practice. I moved to the UK in 2013 to start my MMus at the Royal Northern College of Music after having completed my Teacher's degree, MMus and BMus at the Royal Conservatoire of Music of Antwerp (Belgium). Even though I had originally planned to only stay for a year, I soon fell in love with Manchester, the city's people and all the beautiful countryside nearby.

 

I started The Singing Practice from my living room in Manchester City Centre after I finished my PGDip at the RNCM and combined this with singing for companies like West Green House, PopUp Opera, Opera Loki and Iford Opera.

 

Singing is so often perceived as something you either can or can't do, but it is my belief that everyone can sing. All you need is a thorough understanding of how your instrument works and a healthy singing technique. Once you know how your voice works, you'll start feeling more in control and you'll soon feel confident in reaching your singing goals.

DAVID CANE

Singing Teacher - Music theory - Sight singing

Hi, my name is David and I’m a baritone. I started singing as a chorister in Leicester Cathedral Choir when I was about 8 years old, and haven’t stopped singing since.

I studied for my undergraduate degree at the University of Cambridge where I sang as a choral scholar in the world-famous King’s College chapel choir. With the choir I sang the daily services, took part in radio and TV broadcasts and had the opportunity to go on tour to concert venues all around the world.

I then completed my postgraduate studies in vocal performance at the Royal Northern College of Music and have been performing regularly since then both as a soloist and in choirs.

As well as performing, I have been teaching singing for just under 10 years in a variety of settings to singers of all ages, from 8 to 80! I have lots of experience in preparing students for ABRSM and Trinity exams, with a significant number achieving merit and distinction results.

STEPHANIE JENNIFER POROPAT

Singing Teacher

Hi, I'm Steph!


I’m a High-School Music Teacher turned Opera Singer from Sydney, Australia – and I’m so excited to join the amazing team at The Singing Practice!
 
A little bit about me:
I have a background in teaching music holistically (Kodaly and Orff pedagogies are totally my jam!). As a vocalist and teacher of voice, I have specialisms and industry experience in both performing and teaching Pop/Jazz/Rock, Musical Theatre, and Classical Voice.

New to singing? No worries! I pride myself on ensuring students feel supported throughout the learning process; not matter their prior knowledge or experience.

Interested in pursuing exams? Refining your setlist? Sprucing up your audition technique? Or  maybe you need extra support through GCSE or A-Level Music Performance? With over a decade of practice in each of these areas, I am certain I can help refine your vocal technique in order to facilitate your journey as an artist and performer.

Still unsure? Please feel free to pop over to my website and drop me a line if you have any questions about me, what I teach, or my pedagogy. 

Looking forward to meeting you!

JULIET MONTGOMERY

Singing Teacher

Hi, my name is Juliet and I am a soprano from Scotland!

 

I have always loved singing and began studying with tutors at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland when I was at high school.  From there I went to Manchester where I received my 1st Class BMus(Hons) degree and Masters degree at the Royal Northern College of Music.  Since graduating I have been lucky enough to perform across Europe as well as up and down the UK with companies such as Opera North, Scottish Opera, Buxton Opera, The National Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Company and Opera Holland Park.

Alongside my singing work I have been teaching for nearly seven years providing vocal tuition to people of all ages and abilities. I have extensive experience in preparing students for ABRSM, LCM and Rockschool exams and many of my students have successfully auditioned for musical theatre, classical singing and popular music courses in higher education.
