I’ve been attending the Vocal Academy for the last 5 years mainly the adult 10 week courses with a few one on ones in between with Bobby. My voice has changed, its improved a lot. The classes are great. Good fun while learning and doing the showcase at the end is an amazing experience. Would highly recommend Bobby and his team


I’ve only taken 3 lessons with Bobby Harpur and oh my days do I feel at home!! He’s helped me not only improve my vocals but be more confident within myself. The best of the best at The Vocal Academy!!!

I can’t recommend Bobby at the Vocal Academy enough. I have never had signing lessons and I was extremely nervous coming into my first one but straight away I was put at ease by Bobby’s wonderful personality and teaching style. I now look forward to my lessons every week and have seen such an improvement in my voice already!

Our unique approach to teaching music is to teach from the musicians perspective. We continuously invest in our own Pedagogy and keep abreast of any new study or scientific discovery that helps us to help our students. While we may do things differently to some other studios our results speak for themselves. Using the basis for Vocal Education as set out by the Old Italian School of Singing, the Scola Cantorum, we teach healthy technique that has been achieving results since the 16th and 17th centuries. Teaching and learning music is a two way street. Building voices and music technique takes time and effort. The better you practice the better your improvement.
