Vanessa has been teaching voice and music for over 20 years both in the UK and locally in San Diego. The high pedigree of her London training, under the most highly acclaimed industry professionals, combined with 20+ years of nurturing artists of all ages and her own experiences on the professional stages of the UK and Southern California render her one of the most in-demand coaches in San Diego. 

Vanessa works with each student to help identify and attain their own personal goals, whether it is hitting that high (or low) note, being brave enough to sing or speak in public, making it into the school show, or seeking successful professional careers. 

Former students have gone on to work in London's West End, major regional theatres and national tours, on popular TV shows and Hollywood movies. Students have earned places at the best conservatories and universities and have won major vocal and theatre competitions.
