Charma Hatfield

Location: North Mymms

I began my musical career in a band called Charma Brash, a dance-pop-electronica duo. I then went solo, working with Salvation International, performing to audiences of thousands internationally. My performing and songwriting background gave me an opportunity to experiment with and develop different vocal styles. In addition, I have extensive experience as a session singer and backing vocalist for various rising stars and established performers. I regularly coach X-Factor and other talent show /competition contestants, touring artists, theatre performers and students preparing to gain admission to stage schools or colleges.

I pride myself on my ability to bring each singer’s latent vocal talent to the forefront using fun and practical techniques. It doesn’t matter whether you are a beginner or an experienced singer!

I perform regularly at venues across the country from Café de Paris to gracing the stage at the prestigious Hackney Empire, London.

I have a number of songs published with Big World Publishing and I continue to work on my own music, co-writing with other artists and producers, notably with Morgan King from the acclaimed dance and ambience label Accidental Music.

As well as vocal techniques for improving the quality and projection of the singing voice, I specialise in performance, gaining confidence and building vocal stamina. My students see real results within just a few weeks of attending lessons, a marked improvement to their vocal ability. My mentoring experience enables me to motivate and get the best out of my students.

I have also worked on the nationwide OpenMic Contests, judging and flying the Vocaltutor flag!

I teach in all styles of music ranging from RnB to Musical Theatre, from Pop to Soul and more.

Testimonials

"Since I’ve been having singing lessons with Charma, my confidence has grown so much. Each week I feel like I am achieving more and more. She encouraged me to go out and attend auditions and I have just been accepted into the chorus of a production of Calamity Jane, which I am very excited about. Charma has been and continues to be an inspiration to me and even when I am having an off day or lacking in confidence, she knows how to lift my spirits and make me feel positive again. Thank you for everything."

'Since I have been taking singing lessons with Charma, my voice and singing skills have become much stronger. Charma has helped me with my own personal fears of lack of confidence by encouraging and supporting me in participating in VocalTutor's Disco Inferno Showcase.'

Hi, my name is Amber Munir and i have been taking singing lessons with Charma for just over a year now and she has helped me a great amount. When i first started with her, my vocal range wasn't as good or as powerful as it has become. Recently I won a competition called 3music and i feel i would not have achieved this without the help from Charma, as the techniques she uses in the lesson really does help. I would defiantly recommend Charma if you are looking for a singing teacher. She is brilliant!
