"I'm a professional singer and voice coach who helps aspiring performers become better singers. They want to strengthen their voice and increase their confidence when singing in public. My clients gain confidence in their own ability, begin to love their voice and feel like they can finally own the stage."
I’ve been offering comprehensive and affordable private lessons in London since 2010. My job is a passion for me, and it brings me joy to be able to share this passion with my students. From day one, they learn important foundational techniques to help them boost their skills and self-esteem. Each one has a unique learning style, and it’s my duty to find out what that is and adapt my lessons accordingly. Contact me today to learn how I can help you achieve your singing goals.
You’re an aspiring singer who would love to develop your voice further. You feel that something’s stopping you from reaching your full potential.
You think that if you could just fix this one thing, your voice would sound so much better.
I know just how you feel, because that’s exactly how I felt about my own voice for years…
My name is CHIDI and I love working with aspiring singers, helping them to improve their voice and sound their best. As an experienced Voice Coach, Recording Artist, Performer, Songwriter, Session Singer and Worship Leader, I have tackled nearly every form of public singing throughout my career but it hasn’t always been easy.
My journey began at aged 20 which is quite a late start by all accounts but it was then that I first started singing in my local church choir. I did not come from a musical family or have a rich heritage of music behind me like most of my peers. I was struck with fear every time I was asked to sing the lead vocal. I would tense up and my voice would be constantly strained from trying to sing against the loud instruments. My voice would let me down at the difficult parts of a song. I never thought I was good enough, and I certainly wasn’t as confident and competent as the other singers who were around me, I was the odd one out. Everyone else seemed so comfortable singing high notes and being up front with the mic.
To be honest, I thought I was just there to make up the numbers and without realising, I had developed some terrible vocal habits to compensate and get me through each song. I still sounded ok, but deep down I wished that I could find a way to achieve a more freer and comfortable voice and get over these constant nerves.
Turning The Corner:
I discovered Speech Level Singing in 2005 and taking regular lessons and learning the new techniques gave me the freedom to sing longer and stronger and made me much more confident when on stage. It felt so good to finally be able to sing without the usual tension in my voice and to hit my high notes with ease. I felt that I had made a total breakthrough.
After seeing vast improvements in my voice, I was eager to take it further and train to become a teacher in my own right. I knew that I could help other singers to find their voice just like I did.
A New Direction:
With my new found confidence, I began touring all over Europe with the choir and I have since played at venues and festivals all over the UK & Europe and shared the stage with big names such as James Brown, Prince, Stevie Wonder, Corinne Bailey-Rae. I have also toured as one of Gloria Gaynor’s backing singers. As a solo artist I released two studio albums and still continue to work regularly in the music industry…..
Working as a voice coach, it has been my privilege to teach hundreds of singers to strengthen their voice and find vocal freedom.
Every day I get to work with people who have had the same or similar experiences as me, singers who want to achieve their best voice, but just don’t know how.
I believe that my experience as a ‘working‘ singer gives me great insight into the issues that singer’s face when they feel that their voice could be so much better if not for this one ‘thing’. Working hard to bring out the best in each voice, I make sure my students are at ease so they enjoy the lessons while learning great technique making the experience much more fun.
Work with me and you can finally say goodbye to the frustration you feel when your voice lets you down as you reach for the high notes.
I can help you to discover a more stronger, freer and flexible voice, which is what we all want right? You’ll no longer have to face the disappointment you feel when you can’t sing with as much power as you would like. Begin on your path to vocal freedom now! Book a session with me and let me show you how to Unleash Your True Voice.
