Vocal Coach Mags Lowe – Singing Teacher and Workshop Leader
Vocal Coach Mags has provided professional vocal coaching and singing workshop facilitation for the last 13 years, helping hundreds of people to learn to sing and move from fear to confidence and enjoyment.
She was the North West Leader for national singing school The Courage to Sing until 2012. She now coaches 6 days per week from her home Music Room in Marple, near Stockport in Greater Manchester.
“It’s a privilege to be a vocal coach because the benefits of singing lessons always extend into other areas of my students lives – from increased confidence, improved mood and even lowered blood pressure – all these have been reported in enthusiastic messages post-lesson by surprised students. Taking singing lessons can be life changing!”
Vocal Coach Mags Lowe says, “Often people say that they can’t sing or would like to learn to sing. However, I believe that everyone can sing and it’s just a matter of having a patient, supportive and encouraging teacher to help you find your voice. I have a fantastic array of singing exercises and techniques that can coax even the most shy and inexperienced non-singer into song – yes, it takes time, but yes, it’s absolutely possible to go from being “tone-deaf” to tuneful.”
Mags specialises in combining confidence-building techniques with the latest vocal training to give clients a uniquely uplifting, empowering singing experience.
Her passion for teaching singing leads her to constantly update her skills and knowledge with the world-renowned teacher-trainers so you can be assured of first-class singing and performance coaching.
Students have gone on to record albums, audition successfully for bands, musical theatre roles and university courses. Equally important and challenging are dreams of just being able to sing in a group situation (think weddings, church, birthdays…) without miming or shame; singing a lullaby to your child; singing in front of your partner or friends. Whatever your singing dream, Mags offers a warm, non-judgmental teaching style coupled with cutting edge, contemporary vocal training techniques.
Based in Marple, Stockport she provides singing lessons in Greater Manchester and beyond, both in person (not at present!) and via Zoom (like Skype but better!). We are exclusively doing online lessons at the moment – they work really well. Contact Me to find out more.
