Singing Lessons & Vocal Coaching

* COVID-19 UPDATE 2020! For the safety of students, teacher and venue staff, all singing lessons and vocal sessions with Hannah-Rose Tristram will take place via zoom until further notice, due to Covid-19. If you would like to make an inquiry or book an online singing lesson / vocal session with Hannah-Rose, email

* Testimonial about online singing with Hannah-Rose: “Hannah-Rose is such a wonderful teacher, full of warmth and empathy and encouragement as well as just knowing her musical onions! I had never sung solo before but through our online sessions she gave me the confidence to perform a piece live to an audience on Zoom – helping me not only with the technical aspects of the song but also to centre the emotions and intention that I wanted to share with the people who watched.” Nicky B

* Online vocal sessions are available on a more flexible range of dates and times than they were in person. Costs are the same but some flexibility is possible where need requires it. You do not need to have a paid zoom account to take vocal lessons over zoom. Online singing lessons / vocal sessions are open to new and returning clients.

* GLOW Choir Brighton is still operating via zoom, and currently has some places open for newcomers.

Hannah-Rose Tristram offers singing lessons, voice coaching, music tuition (including accordion), and therapeutic voice work.

Where? Pre-Covid sessions took place at Hobgoblin Music Shop on specific days. Currently, all sessions are taking place via zoom.

When? Pre-Covid sessions took place on specific days and times. Timetables are now more flexible and changeable – contact Hannah-Rose to inquire.

About the lessons/sessions: Sessions are 60 mins long, and usually begin with checking in, warm-ups and vocal excercises, then move on to working on a specific song / text / vocal exploration. Sessions are carefully adapted to suit the needs of the individual student.

Students are required to choose a song/text to work on as appropriate, and to notify Hannah-Rose of this at least 5 days before each session, so she can prepare the materials you need.

Cost? Sessions cost £45 full price, £40 standard, or £35 concession. This is based on an honesty policy of what you can afford, and needs to be pre-agreed with Hannah-Rose.

Offers? As a thank you to continuing students, I’ll offer a £5 one-off discount on a recommend-a-friend scheme. If you recommend a friend who has not worked with me before, and they state when they book that you recommended me, then your next session after their first session can have £5 off.

How to book? Email or leave a message / text at 07771 511726

Share a Lesson With a Friend/Family Member?  Two person lessons are available at £55 or £50 concession, and all the other details above apply. Two person lessons have the potential for vocal harmony explorations, sharing the cost of the lesson, mutual support and a fun connecting activity.

Please be aware, that in a two person lesson, you have less individual focus on your own voice and journey than you do in a one person lesson, so if there are specific technical or other voice related matters you want to explore more deeply, you might want to book an individual lesson at some point too!

What Students Say:

“I’m early on my voice coaching journey but already feel far more confident and playful with my voice. I’m enjoying the exercises I’ve been given, and find Hannah-Rose’s style to be very thoughtful; she’s taken time to understand my needs and creates a safe space for me to explore and find my authentic voice. Thoroughly recommend sessions with Hannah-Rose.” Rosie.

“Hannah-Rose has a lovely open way of teaching. Encouraging. Fun. Thoughtful. I have always loved singing on my own but wondered if I could actually sing – and it turns out that I can! I found a lot of laughter in the sessions, which I also needed. We worked on all kinds of things that made my singing better, and have more confidence.” Nikki D

“My singing feels freer already, and most importantly, more fun!” Neil Foster, after his first one-to-one session.

“Singing with you has given me the confidence to join the Cathedral choir!” Lulu Willis

“My muscles feel well exercised and my singing feels better already – lovely!” Sophie Bown, after first voice coaching session.

“My singing seems to be coming along nicely. There seem to be signs of real progress with increased confidence. I do thank you very much for helping me through that barrier. You made it safe for me to have a go … The singing sessions seem to be doing me a lot of good.” Rob King

“Singing – you’ve renewed my passion for it and I love it!” Emma Red
