Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you situated?

I am based on Edgware Road in Marylebone near Marble Arch. The nearest underground stations are Marble Arch Underground Station (Jubilee Line) and Edgware Road (Bakerloo, Circle, District and Hammersmith & City Lines).

What time do you teach on Edgware Road?

You can book a lesson Monday to Friday 11am-6pm (last lesson starting at 5pm) or Saturday 11am-5pm (last lesson starting at 4pm). If you want to book a lesson later in the evening you will have to come to my flat in Bermondsey near London Bridge Station. For more information please click here.

How much is a singing lesson?

One singing lesson is £50 and lasts for 60 minutes. You can also block book 10 singing lessons and save £50. You pay £450 instead of £500. Please note all lessons have to be paid for in advance online.

Please click here for more information about block bookings. Please note singing lessons in Marylebone are a little bit more expensive. The cancellation policy (please see below) is also longer at 48 hours.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

Yes. I have a strict 48 hour cancellation policy for my teaching studio in Marylebone regardless of the reason of absence.

What can I expect when I arrive for my singing lesson if I am new to studying singing?

If you are a beginner and feel a bit unsure of what to expect, I can reassure you that you'll be absolutely fine!

You'll probably feel a bit nervous to begin with and that's perfectly normal. We will begin the lesson with a brief chat about your singing experience followed by breathing exercises and vocalising before turning to any repertoire.

It is very important to warm up the voice just as if you would (hopefully) warm up before you go running. If you are an experienced singer you know what to expect and you might have warmed up beforehand so we can get down to more difficult vocal techniques before turning to repertoire. Every singer is different from each other and I don't adhere to a certain school of singing trying to fit every person into a preconceived formula of "one glove fits all". 

Do I need to bring anything to the lesson?

Please bring sheet music for any songs or arias you want to work on and also extra copies for me. Please try not to wear any high heels or uncomfortable clothes.

I'm allergic to animals. Do you have any pets?

No. The venue in Marylebone is pet free. 

Kristina is very big on technique which is something I thoroughly enjoy, and because of this I am now learning how to be in control of my voice again.

 About Me

I am an accomplished singer, singing teacher and choir leader born in Sweden, now mainly based in Bermondsey in south London where I live with my husband Mike and our little mischievous cat Mimmi. I also teach singing near Marble Arch in Marylebone in west London.

 I studied classical singing at Royal University College of Music in Stockholm and have a Master of Fine Arts degree in Music.

In addition to singing, I studied Drama, Piano, Violin, Movement, Music History and Theory, Harmony and Composition as well as the German, French and Italian languages.

I continued studying for a Postgraduate Diploma at Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London with the fabulous American singer and professor Paula Anglin.

My operatic and contemporary repertoire is extensive as is my song repertoire which include English, German, French, Spanish and Scandinavian repertoire.

 

Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions. You can call text or email me at any time.
