Cambridge singing teacher, Julia Caddick teaches classical singing up to Conservatoire entry level (bel canto and Classical Voice Training methods) and Musical Theatre singing up to professional level (Estill). Her aim is to give all her students a solid technique from which to improve their sound and enjoy their singing. Julia loves to enable each student to discover their own individual voice.
Students of all ages from 14 upwards are welcome. If you are a professional performer, Julia can offer audition preparation and one-off ‘top up’ lessons, as well as on-going lessons to help you develop your singing technique.
Julia is a fully qualified teacher with 30 years teaching experience, 20 of those as a singing teacher. Julia is a highly effective teacher, as evidenced by the singing achievements of the students she has taught. (see Former Singing Students’ Success below).
Several of Julia’s former singing students have careers in opera, professional choral singing, and musical theatre. Three of Julia’s former singing students are currently studying Singing Performance at Conservatoires in the UK. Many of Julia’s students have gained choral scholarships at Oxford, Cambridge and King’s College, London, and one former student was an X Factor finalist! Many more enjoy their singing for pleasure.
