After a break from teaching Shanice is looking forward to working with her students again, inspiring them and sharing her further developed skills and experience. Shanice teaches using a bespoke lesson plan that is tailored to each student and their goals.  Shanice can teach many genres but specialises in the more contemporary styles e.g. Pop/Soul/Gospel & also Musical Theatre and is keen for her students to find their own voices, helping them to build their vocal confidence and performance techniques. Sharing her own experiences, Shanice can help prepare students with their entrance exams for Music & Performance education and for major auditions in shows such as BGT and XFactor ensuring they feel relaxed and confident in their abilities and informing them as to how best navigate the process, handle the nerves/stage fright and best present themselves. 

Shanice firmly believes in vocal health, vocal control and technique. It's about learning how your voice works best for you. Belting at full pelt for impact does not necessarily equate to a great vocalist, but that dynamics and control are the best ways to deliver vocals or a song without long term damage to your vocal health. Most importantly - Singing should always be fun and enjoyable.

Lessons are taught using backing tracks in the main and can include recording facilities where appropriate.
