British, New York based vocal coach offering online voice lessons for beginners, pros and everyone in between!

Methodology

My students and I work together to improve vocal technique, develop performance style and build confidence. I happily coach total beginners, professional singers and everyone in between. The methods I use draw on a range of contemporary teaching concepts that aim to help you get the most out of YOUR unique voice, as opposed to trying to produce a specific, 'cookie cutter' sound. Although, if you want to work towards a particular vocal style (Broadway, studio- pop, metal etc) we can absolutely explore that too.

Ultimately, I just want to help you achieve your singing goals, whether that's to nail an audition, master your vocal runs, work towards a performance or just to crush your morning shower karaoke session!

Background

Charlie is on a mission to bring singing to the world—one laugh, one voice, one song at a time. A vivacious, London-born singer, vocal coach, choir master and creative entrepreneur, she began her journey with a degree from the Liverpool Institute of Performing arts. Now based in New York, She has crisscrossed the pond and conquered musical challenges up and down the scale, from producing grassroots community arts projects to large-scale singing events. Over a nearly 20-year career, she has performed at the Glastonbury Festival, sung alongside Brian Eno, Ringo Starr and the Zombies and conducted a 50-person choir at Madison Square Garden.

She is the founding director of New York Choir Project, where her passion for music continues to be a force for education, well-being and change—and a chance to harmonize her way through life.

I’ve been lucky enough to work with Charlie for years. She’s a dynamic, supportive and thoughtful teacher who makes learning fun. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone exceptional who brings a lot of creativity into their work as a teacher.

I met Charlie when I joined one of her choirs. As an amateur singer with no training I jumped at the chance for individual voice coaching when offered. Charlie's no-judgement style made me completely comfortable and in just two lessons I'm already finding I can do more with my voice than ever before!

M
Meredith

I thought my singing voice was decent, but not necessarily something I’d show off. Working with Charlie (who is seriously patient and positive to no end) showed me that there’s beauty in every voice. I feel like a pro!

G
Gareth

During the pandemic, Charlie’s lessons have become a bright spot in my week. I always leave our online sessions feeling lighter and energized. I have seen great improvements in my technique and also just feel better after a good sing!

V
Vicente

I am really enjoying my lessons with Charlie. I am new to vocal coaching but over the few months we have worked together I have seen some really big changes in my voice. I feel so much more confident now and am excited to continue to work on my singing!

I love my time with Charlie. I made a decision in Lockdown to try to work on my voice - Charlie was fantastic. She is lovely, good fun at the same time very professional She really understood what I needed to improve my vocal skills. I cant recommend her enough. I'm now working with her every week. Life is looking up!!

Caitlin

I really enjoyed my lessons with Charlie, she's such a warm and encouraging person, she really made me feel at ease. The techniques she teaches have really helped to give more consistency to my voice when I'm singing, and I feel a lot more confident as a result. Would highly recommend as a vocal coach!

Working with Charlie has been truly amazing! I feel like I discover something new about my voice each week and, under her guidance have managed to sing notes and styles that I didn’t know I was capable of! She is warm, fun and a real pro. It’s a privilege to work with her.

Alex

As a singer / songwriter I have found Charlie's approach to vocal tech super helpful. She really listens to me and helps me work on MY sound. We definitely do go there with the vocal tech but I never feel like she is trying to push me away from the singing style I prefer. She has helped me find safe and healthy ways to expand my range and hit high notes with power, but the sound still works for my genre.
