Read testimonials from some of Stephen Baker's colleagues & students over his numerous years of teaching Singing Lessons.
Stephen is so talented at what he does, I cannot recommend him any higher. When I first started my lessons 6 months ago with Stephen, my singing technique was completely wrong and I was holding a lot of tension in my neck - restricting my tone and range, which I was not aware of until our first lesson. Stephen analyses your voice, posture, pronunciation and breathing and evaluates your unique vocal style and how he can work with it to make it the best it can be; rather then forcing his own style on you. As a consequence you are able to develop and build on your own style. Stephen observed my weaknesses and worked hard to help me learn to overcome them and become disciplined with my practice. He also observed my strengths and helped me to be more confident. Stephen not only helps you with your vocal technique but teaches performance technique, which was something I was particularly excited about, as all other teachers I’ve had forgot this aspect. He is not just a fantastic teacher but he is also a mentor and a friend - I hope to keep working with him for as long as I perform.
