LOUISE YOUNG

Louise is West End actress and vocal coach based in Soho, London. She teaches the Estill model used by some of the world’s leading vocalists from pop, opera to London’s West End. This methodology focuses on developing vocal skills based on analysing the process of vocal production. By acquiring the ability to consciously move each structure her singers improve at a rapid rate. Jo Estill believed that “everyone has a beautiful voice” and when you truly understand how it all works, there is no limit to what you can do.

She teaches all ages and abilities from absolute beginners to seasoned professionals. Many of Louise’s ‘beginners’ now pursue singing professionally with some achieving great success in the industry. She strongly believes when you change the way you approach the voice and learn failsafe techniques, it is nothing but a joy to sing!
