Training……….

 

Lynne trained at the Royal Academy of Music with Henry Cummings and Constance Shacklock.

She continued to study privately with Ilse Wolf, Laura Sarti and Paul Hamburger and joined the Elsa Mayer-Lismann Opera Group performing with them at the Purcell Room.

 

Performing……….

 

She was one of the first singers to be accepted on the Eastern Arts Performance Programme which led to appearances in concert, oratorio and music clubs throughout the country.

This year she is touring with Sheila Harding in their actress/singer cabaret “The Caged Bird Sings” appearing in venues in the north, midlands and south of England and in France. “Sometimes joyful, sometimes grim, sometimes joyful, often surprising.”

 

Teaching……….

 

While still a student at RAM  Lynne was approached to teach singing at Clarendon College (New College Nottingham) working with students towards music college entrance; thus began a career combining performance and teaching.

Past pupils have and are appearing in opera houses and in musicals throughout the world.  see testimonies

Lynne’s interest in the different approach needed to teach adults enabled her to work in the University “Life Long Learning Programme” as well as devising community projects  “Next Stage” and “Open House Singing” facilitating a World Series of study days which included Lieder, French Song, Early English and English Song and American Musical Theatre.

She has acted as moderator for the ABC Examining Board.

Lynne is a member of the Nottingham University Queens Medical Centre Voice Team helping in the assessment of damaged voices. At her Voice Centre she works with singers experiencing difficulties, putting together their individual Voice Care Package, a programme of exercises and techniques to help retrain and rehabilitate singers with vocal problems.
