Private singing coach in London and East Cowes, Isle of Wight
Helping singers to find their sound, through developing secure technique based on breath support, articulation and projection.
Various music styles can be covered, including acoustic singing and microphone technique.
Beginners to advanced are all welcome: I very much like to work with people who want to gain confidence and a real sense of enjoying their experience of singing, moving beyond it being a sense struggle of any kind.

“I recommend Krysia without hesitation – I have worked with her on three separate projects… she sang three beautiful pieces a cappella at my wedding in the summer of 2014, and the winter before that Krysia led a Nature Goddess themed Hen Do singing performance and workshop afternoon for a close friend of mine. She chose from a broad repertoire and the bride and hens enjoyed singing together – it really broke down barriers (not all attendees spoke English well), and brought us together in a totally different way. Krysia also gave me a series of singing lessons whilst I was pregnant with my first child. If you are looking for someone sensitive, who listens to your needs and respects your musical tastes and abilities whilst being able to spot areas for improvement to really shine, you can’t go wrong if you go with Krysia! Her energy and positivity is utterly contagious. As a performer she sparkles, as a workshop leader she is engaging and responsive, and as a singing tutor she is respectful and incisive.”  Caf Fean, Associate at DCA Consultants, Hastings.
“Art has the power to transform and heal.

Krysia integrates both. She takes it out of the one dimensional and old fashioned function to merely entertain.

I felt safe as she slowly beckoned my breath back to me one note at a time.
I felt understood.
I felt free.
She has the uncanny ability to bring us HOME through her gifts.”
Ash Mukherjee, dancer, choreographer, teacher, mental health blogger.
“In just a few sessions, Krysia has helped me to find confidence in my voice once more. Her real skill is that she has been able to conjure the images that I have been able to connect to, in order to develop my technique. She has guided me through new approaches to songs I know well and given me the freedom to sing songs from genres outside of my comfort zone.”  Ali Kemp, actress, London.
“I went to Krysia as a guitarist with no known vocal ability. I was curious to see if I could actually sing and find out if I had a decent vocal range. My lessons were very relaxed and enjoyable and I soon found myself projecting my voice across the room with a confidence I didn’t know I had. I’d totally recommend Krysia to anyone wanting to improve their singing ability and skills.”  Barry Sears, Shanklin.
“Krysia is a fabulous voice coach. She immediately puts you at ease with her warm genuine laughter and smiling face. As you spend time with Krysia your confidence grows and the potential within your voice is reached. I would highly recommend Krysia as your personal voice coach, or within a choir.”  Hilary, Isle of Wight.
