Here at BHVA we pride ourselves on the quality of our one to one vocal tuition. Whether you’re looking to find out if you can sing, wanting some confidence to join a choir or sing karaoke in front of your friends, improve your voice for the band that you’re performing with, or prepare for an audition, then we can help.
Lessons are available either in person or online – please note that during the COVID-19 pandemic ALL lessons are ONLINE. Students come from as far away as the USA and Japan for online sessions.
Your lessons will be tailored to you and the goals that you set. We will look to ensure the basics such as breathing and a clear tone are there, then explore different the different vocal qualities (sounds) that we can make, and that we may need for the songs that you’re singing.
Lessons have a practice diary that is included, which have been designed by me. These provide you with clear instructions on what I am expecting you to work on each week. It also offers a space for you to reflect on your lesson and practice. This is so that you can see the progress that you’re making, and it also helps me to structure the lessons to suit you.

At your first Vocal Tuition session, we will sit down so you can tell me about yourself, your experience with singing, and any health issues (as these may affect your voice and will help me to identify the best way to move forwards with your training). We will then do a vocal assessment.There’s no need to worry – these are a series of simple exercises that I can sing with you if needed.
If there is a song that you have then it would be good to hear that too, but it’s not essential. From this we can come up with a plan suited for you and the goals that we have identified.
How much you would like to learn about the anatomy and science of the voice is down to you. For some students they don’t want to know about this. Other students want to learn how the voice works so they can better understand how they use it. Clear explanations will be given if wanted.
Remember – if you don’t understand something that’s not your fault. It means that it hasn’t been explained in a way for you to understand, so another explanation is required.
Can’t wait to see you at a one-to-one Vocal Tuition session.
"Online Sing Squad is a ray of sunshine in these unprecedented times. Beccy’s upbeat spirit and positive attitude makes the session really fun and a great focus for my daughter. We’re already looking forward to our next session!"
"I’ve been enjoying Harmonix from the beginning. It’s a great place to have a good sing, be a bit silly and learn all in one place! In these strange and unusual times, I was beginning to miss friends and normality. Thankfully, Beccy was quick to move sessions online and for a few hours on a Sunday evening we can escape. It’s a great way to manage stress and anxiety too and welcome more than ever!"
"Having Beccy teach me is the highlight of my week. My voice is being pushed in all the right places and I am being given the confidence to do things I didn’t think I could. I cannot recommend this lovely lady enough offering her magic and vast knowledge to all ages!"
"Knowing my child can learn to sing with someone like Beccy is really exciting. Not only is she an amazing and experienced musician and teacher, but she cares about good vocal health which is something I think is hugely important – especially in children."
"Beccy Hurrell is a dedicated teacher who is deeply committed to learning new techniques and strategies for teaching. She is committed to education and is passionate about access to education. Her students quite rightly adore her as she is warm, empathetic and nurturing."
"Beccy is such a great role model for young women. She is a fantastic teacher and academic. Would highly recommend!"
"We have been so pleased to see the progress our daughter has made with Beccy and the variety of techniques that she uses. To see how her confidence has grown where she is able to question and discuss with Beccy about how she feels on certain exercises and how she will embrace those that also fall outside her comfort zone. It is a real partnership in every sense and the learning book used each week is a fantastic tool that makes the student take time to reflect on their week and practice."
