Singing students showcase talent
Published 30/12/13



“SING your hearts out!” is what singing teacher Liz Balmford asks her students to do every December — and they did so at a concert for family and friends on Sunday, December 15 at the Red Lion Hotel.

The performers sang pop ballads such as Jar Of Hearts, musical theatre favourites such as On My Own and the classic English folk song Sea Fever.

Local singers Naomi Vallance and Totie Southwell also performed, entertaining the audience with songs they had composed themselves.

Liz said: “The programme was packed with Christmas songs to get everyone in a festive mood and local beautician, Naomi Stapleton, even had the audience joining in with her haunting rendition of White Christmas.”

In her Henley-based performance coaching practice, Sing Speak Be, Liz teaches singing and coaches for all types of performance, from pop karaoke to musical theatre and from drama school auditions to business presentations. Her coaching encompasses vocal technique, body language and performance mindset.


Liz said: “Technical lessons and practice help to improve a singing voice, but there’s nothing like performing in public to take things to a higher level.

“I regularly stage concerts to give my students the opportunity to sing live. Standing in front of an audience changes your performance — and the courage it takes increases confidence in all areas of life.

“The concert was a chance for my students to share their progress with their peers and to experiment with new material in front of a friendly audience.

“The mix of singers meant that there was a great range of age, experience and ability and they could all learn something from each other. We had a great evening enjoying the entertainment — with a glass of wine.”
