Private Lessons

Singing Teacher and Vocal Coach

Mags Lowe provides private singing lessons for everyone who wants and loves to sing. Whether you are a complete beginner or gigging performer, she can support your development.

 
Based in Marple near Stockport, she draws on industry-standard vocal coaching and performance techniques, which are taught in such a way as to draw out the best from each individual student, whatever their age or previous experience.

During your private singing lessons she will help you to find your voice, improve it and become a more confident and expressive singer. Vocal coaching sessions are kept fun and motivating through working on material of your choice and are tailored to your ability and confidence levels.

Mags has helped people of all ages, from all walks of life to gain confidence in their voice and she can help you too. With which of the following do you identify?

Tone deaf and terrified? Never had singing lessons and not sure if you can sing? Mags offers singing lessons for beginners. You really can learn to sing from scratch, opening up a whole world of enjoyment. Note by note you can build your voice and ability to hold a tune. Gain control over your voice and enjoy it!

Rusty-voiced, a little shy or just a bit out of practice? Learn breathing, posture and vocal techniques that will open up a world of enjoyment – sing the songs you love, nail those high notes, develop power and extend your range. Your confidence will improve along with your voice.

A guitarist wanting to sing better with your instrument? She has helped many male and female guitarists to achieve a better and more confident vocal. Or even to sing a note at all – many of my students are self-proclaimed “tone-deaf” and “non-singers”. If you’d like to learn to sing and play guitar at the same time, learn how to sing harmonies and improvise or even try your hand at song writing then get in touch today.

A dancer who needs to sing for auditions and exciting parts? Mags is experienced in vocal coaching dancers for auditions and is proud of all her past students who have achieved leading roles in musical theatre productions and gained places in the further education institutes of their choice. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never sung before, with regular singing lessons and practice you can improve immeasurably and achieve your dream!

Wanting to turn professional or already gigging? Gain help with your mic technique, perfect your audition songs; tweak your vocals for the recording studio and gigs. Mags is highly skilled in diagnosing and correcting technical issues in the voice, breathing and posture – it may only take a few sessions.

Or do you have voice problems? If you think you may have damaged your voice she can assess whether you are fit to sing, help you to rediscover your voice and improve your technique.


Vocal Coaching sessions are based at Mags’ home studio in Marple, Stockport or can be taken from anywhere in the UK by Skype. Marple has two train stations, good bus connections and is easily accessible from all over the North West and Manchester including Romiley, Bredbury, Woodley, Offerton, Macclesfield, Poynton, Sale, Ashton-under-Lyne, Reddish, Brinnington, Adswood, Cheadle, Heaton Moor, Davenport, Chorlton, Dukinfield, Hyde, Hazel Grove, Chisworth, Didsbury, Charlesworth, New Mills, Glossop, Buxton and beyond!

I really couldn’t sing in tune and thought I was a no-hoper but Mags reassured me over the phone that it was possible to learn. She’s a brave lady taking me on! I’m starting to recognise when I’m in tune now whereas before I hadn’t a clue; and whilst I’m not the best of singers, I can definitely hear the improvement in my tuning and voice strength.

The atmosphere Mags creates in our lessons naturally encourages me to challenge myself more and more, week by week. I can say to anyone thinking about lessons that you’ll definitely notice the improvement in your voice, your tuning, and your confidence after only a few sessions. Jenni (25)

Hi Mags, Thanks for sending the vocal exercise files over. I’ve downloaded and will see how I go with them. I must say I was really impressed with your lesson. I left feeling really confident. I think that that’s what I need tbh. Maybe a good way to do things going forward is to play you my songs and you give feedback and ideas like you did last night. That was really helpful. I’ll definitely be booking more lessons as I thought lasts night’s was spot on. Thanks v much & good to meet you. Brad (May 2016)

Hi Mags, Just thought I’d let you know that Isobel was really buzzing after her singing lesson today. I think she had a lightbulb moment with the combination of singing and acting and said it was the best singing lesson ever! She says she gets tingles when she sings that song now, so you’ve made a small girl very happy! See you next week. Richard (April 2016)

I started singing lessons with Mags maybe 3/4 months ago and she has helped me an unbelievable amount. From breathing technique to projection, everything has improved. Most importantly she has helped build my confidence, which was much needed. She encouraged me to enter Open Mic UK and I’m through to the Area Final! I never thought I’d be able to sing in front of people and now I am doing so. Her home studio is more than comfortable, quite spacious and is well equipped for singing lessons. Mags on the whole is a lovely lady, caring and funny. I can’t recommend her enough! Natalia (Oct 2015)

Well what can I say… When you first meet mags you can feel an instant sigh of relief that your not learning your vocal training from a stuffy teacher, even though, she’s impeccably trained, you feel like she’s personalising the knowledge you need to take your next steps. I think that the most impressive gift a teacher has, is to make it fun, I never walk away feeling short changed. Quite the opposite, it’s amazing how much value she’s directly added to my creative experience. I never write reviews, but very happy to write a review here. Just don’t take my slots! “Customer and friend for life! 5*” Wonderful flexibility time wise and great facilities. Always goes the extra mile too by sending you your lessons in recordings. She will show you the path to becoming the star you want to be. Christopher (Oct 2015)

Having never sang before I met Mags 4 years ago at a spur of the moment taster session. Mags’s passion for singing and relaxed teaching style rubbed off on me and made me come back for more and I haven’t looked back since. I now sing in a choir and a barbershop Acapella group as well as regular top up lessons to fine tune my voice. I have been involved in some fantastic performances over the last few years including singing with a choir pitch side at Wembley, on stage at Echo Area & Birmingham NEC and backing G4 at one of their comeback gigs this year….none of which would have happened had I not met Mags on that Saturday afternoon in the sun!! I would highly recommend for anyone to let Mags help them on their singing journey whether your ultimate goals are to sing better in the shower or to sing on stage in front of thousands…she will help you bring out the best you have inside you.

Well what can I say singing is the one thing I love in life. At school I was in the choir and in my teens dabbled in a bit of the old karaoke. Then I had my kids and left singing behind. As my kids are older I started going out more and found my passion for singing again, if not that well. But my hubby bought me the most amazing prezzy, singing lessons with Mags. I was so nervous on my first lesson, scared she would just laugh but she was great. She told me to make a list of songs I wanted to sing. On the day she asked me about the songs then picked the one I was most dreading doing as I just could not sing it. Well within 2 weeks applying the techniques she taught me I could hit all the notes in the song. It’s hard to believe how much my voice is improving given the short time I have been having lessons. I really can not recommend Mags enough. Nikki (Oct 2015)

I am so glad I chose Mags as my singing coach. She makes you feel instantly at ease which is not easy to do when you have to stand and sing in front of somebody new! I’ve had lessons for just over a year now and have improved so much. Songs that I wouldn’t have dared tried a year ago are starting to feel almost natural. Most importantly she has encouraged me to get out there and do something with my singing and so I have been in a studio and recorded a song – which I would never have had the confidence to do before. If you’re looking for a singing coach i would highly recommend Mags – she is a top class coach and such a lovely person – you would definitely enjoy her lessons! Grace (Oct 2015)

I just wanted to say a big thanks for all your help with Joe’s singing over the past couple of months. He seems to be far more confident in his abilities now, which is brilliant.

After my lesson I tried loads of songs that I struggled with before and all of a sudden I’m hitting notes I couldn’t get before and my tone is comfy rather than stressed. Honestly, it’s like my whole singing voice has changed and very much for the better!! I can’t thank you enough. The guys at band practice were astounded by the difference in 1 hour and I really am as well. Can’t wait for next week’s lesson. Nick Lowe (May 2015)

In the time I’ve been coming for lessons, my breathing has improved immeasurably, I know more about what I am doing, and I know more about what to do. I enjoy it all so much now, and feel confident enough to perform for others. Your guidance has given me the courage to enjoy singing as I always wanted to. You always know what you are doing, 100% concentrated and never distracted. Colin (2015)

As an experienced singer, I approached Mags for some lessons to improve my technique and performance stamina for singing lead vocals with a covers band. Mags did a brilliant job of quickly getting to know me and asking all the right questions to ensure every minute of the lesson was completely tailored to my needs. In just three lessons, Mags has equipped me with personalised advice, practical skills and tips to take my singing to the next level and ensure I don’t damage my voice. I’d highly recommend Mags for singing tuition at all levels. She really knows her stuff and has a great knack of putting you at ease so you can lose inhibitions and break through singing barriers. Thank you! Janelle (2014)

I wanted to sing a song for my Wife at a party for my 40th Birthday but I had not sang in public since my school days and was very nervous about the prospect. I contacted Mags to arrange lessons. Mags taught me skills and techniques that gave me the confidence to get up and sing in front of all my friends and family. I would not have been able to do this for my Wife without the help and support I received from Mags, thank you so much. Andy (2014)

I had some lessons with you several years ago in Mossley and absolutely loved them. I have since been travelling all over the globe singing and acting and have just returned from working in Disney World in Florida for the past year.
Now I’m back in the UK I’m wanting to audition to do my Masters in Acting/Musical theatre and also for Disney cruise line but I really need your help to work some magic on my voice before auditions.
Marple is kind of a long way to go for me (as I don’t drive) but I am willing to travel seeing as you are a million times better than any other tutors I’ve had. Natalie (2013)

I had vocal coaching/singing lessons with Mags for around two years before her maternity leave. Mags is a fabulous teacher providing not just tools and techniques for singing but also confidence to really give it a go! I’m incredibly grateful to Mags for getting me singing; I’ve been singing in a choir for the last two years as a result. What else can I say, Mags really is an awesome teacher and a really nice person too. Alec (2013)

Remember this amazing lady if you fancy trying to sing. She is marvellous. She is responsible for this wallflower now having the confidence to assault her colleagues with constant noise around the office all day long. (The WI choir really doesn’t realise what it is in for.) Mags put me at my ease so much that I put her through months of caterwauling, which she not only survived but during which she never once cringed. (despite the pain I was likely putting her unborn child through). Not many are made of such star stuff. Caroline (2013)

Mags has helped Charlie to believe in himself. He was struggling socially at school and through singing has just grown and grown in confidence. Singing has become his “thing”, something he can feel pride in. He’s passionate about acting and has just got a singing role, something that would never have happened without Mags’s coaching. He feels comfortable with her and as a result is blossoming. Jules (2011)

I found some courage! It’s been a roller-coaster of a journey but I’ve gone from being too self-conscious to even hum a tune when I thought folk were listening to being able to sing (out loud) when I know I’m not alone! Not much, you may think, but a huge step for me. I’ve found it’s even helped in other areas of self-consciousness. I’d recommend it to anyone who needs to find the “courage to sing”! Sally (2010)
