Skills and expertise
Trudi is a huge believer in ‘loving the songs you sing’, and the idea of her lessons is to craft classical singing exercises around the songs of YOUR choice. Whether it is a pop song heard on the radio, a song from a musical, or just a song you have been in love with for a long time, Trudi will base the lessons on a series of classical exercises and then apply these techniques to a handcrafted song of your choice, to help achieve better sound, better range, better breathing, and all-around better technique. Trudi is also happy to teach singers who would like to accompany themselves.
