Jordan Hodson

Jordan is a professional vocal coach based in central Leeds, helping students of all ages to develop their vocal ability. She is a qualified teacher, having graduated from Leeds College of Music with a BA Hons Degree in popular music.

She has been teaching since 2014, specialising in Pop singing, leading some students into the Trinity and Rock School singing exams to achieve a distinction every time. Jordan has experience teaching both one to one lessons and group sessions ranging from ages 4-35, every age is considered.

In her current teaching practice, Jordan uses the method of Primal Sounds - (Sigh, Whimper, Whinge and Yell) in order to apply to various musical styles and techniques. She adapts her methods to each student as no one is alike and try to make everything as relevant as possible giving as many examples to relate to. Jordan has been using this method for many years and found it to be very relatable and effective, however, she is extremely interested and invested in learning as much about the voice as she can. Jordan is particularly interested in the workings of Dr Irene Bartlett at the moment.

“My daughter, Lucy, has had singing lessons with Jordan for a number of years. We have always found Jordan to be friendly, reliable, punctual and flexible and Lucy's technique and confidence have both grown considerably.”
– Karen Handley

Alongside the teaching, Jordan is currently a member of numerous bands, performing regularly around the country singing at weddings, parties, and events. She also writes and performs her own music varying the performance style and techniques considering which is most relevant for the repertoire.

Due to her experience, knowledge and direct involvement within the music industry, Jordan has learned extensively from various professionals about what is required to develop as a modern-day recording artist, performer and collaborator. She believes this experience gives her an appealing ability to pass relevant specialist knowledge on to students.

She is able to adapt to a number of musical styles, primarily teaching to build confidence and fulfillment of every student. Sessions consist of warm-ups, technical practice such as scales, breathing and singing techniques, working on a song choice of the student to ensure the best techniques and performance is used.

Alice Higgins

Alice is a professional vocalist and singing teacher based in Burley, Leeds. She graduated from the University of Leeds in 2015 with a BA music degree.

During the time at University Alice worked with the University Big Band, musically-directed a national award winning A Cappella Group, and vocal coached 5 musicals for the Students' Union. She now performs with a range of musical ensembles in Leeds and also work with producers and writers in Manchester and London.

Alice teaches a wide range of genres and styles, from hip-hop to folk, pop to classical! Singing is a deeply rooted passion of hers, and I think singing of all abilities and ages is a wonderful thing to experience and be part of.

As a singing teacher, Alice understands that each individual may want lessons for a number of reasons. Whether that be to develop a specific area, learn how to sing - starting at the very beginning (a very good place to start!) or whether you have a specific song you want to focus on. Alice is here to help you gain the skills and technique you need. Each lesson is individually tailored for you, to help you get the most out of your lessons with Alice.

I have received vocal training since the age of 9 and have experienced a number of different teaching methods that I am able to apply to my own teaching. With me, you will learn the skills to perform confidently and professionally to the best of your ability within a comfortable and positive environment.

From your first lesson, we will discuss what you want to achieve from your vocal training and build a progressive programme that works best for you. Whether you’d like to focus on scale practice, range building and pitch accuracy or even just perform some of your favourite songs, together we can design a programme that suits your goals.

Alice honestly believes anyone can sing but it requires the correct support, practice and passion to create a truly talented vocalist. Singing is something very organic and she feels shouldn’t be clouded in rules and regulations. However, with practice and lessons, you will be able to perform to your maximum potential with ease and fluidity.

Whether you are aspiring to be a professional singer or just want to learn how to sing with confidence and for fun, Alice can design vocal lessons to help you strengthen and develop your voice. She also works with a brilliant team of vocal teachers across Leeds to help provide the right lessons for you. Each provide professional lessons to help you develop your voice safely and correctly, whilst still having fun!
