Sheena McInnes - Vocal Coach/Teacher
Sheena has developed a unique coaching concept designed for singers and performers to help them reach the full potential of their vocal and performance ability. Combine this with confidence building and you have an amateur with a professional attitude.
A singing teacher 'teaches' people to sing - a vocal coach encourages singers to bridge the gap between singing and acting, by helping them to interpret songs in their own individual style. Sheena can transform your performance/production to a professional standard either with individual singing lessons or by coming into your rehearsal room and providing tailored coaching for your show or concert.
Sheena is a performer of 40 years experience at both amateur and professional standard. She was coached and mentored from an early age by some of the most experienced and leading people in the fields of Rock, Pop, Jazz, Choral Singing, Opera and Musical Theatre. She has 20 years teaching and coaching experience and has developed a unique style of coaching in order to promote and encourage the enjoyment of singing and performance.
Sheena, a member of the British Voice Association, is passionate about maintaining vocal health and incoporates this into her teaching along with technique and peformance coaching - The Complete Singing Lesson.
'Most people can sing the notes - not everyone can perform the song'
