Singing Teacher from Ireland, ready to help you with your singing in a way that suits you.
To date I have a lot of experience in vocal teaching of all levels and have developed a specific interest in teaching beginner piano using a wide variety of methods depending on your individual needs.
I started taking singing lessons at 13, followed by piano lessons a couple years later. Throughout my teenage years I enjoyed a variety of performing experience be it with choirs, concerts or local productions of musicals such as West Side Story where I played Tony or Phantom of the Opera where I was The Phantom. After achieving distinction in classical singing and musical theatre at grade 8 I applied to do my Bachelors of Music in Ireland. Throughout my undergraduate degree I sang roles in a variety of Operas and Oratorios, given recitals singing English, French, Italian and German and been soloist in choral performances. I graduated with a First Class Honours Bachelor degree in music specialising in teaching and a Masters degree in performance from the Royal Conservatoire Scotland. I now enjoy performing opera and concerts throughout Ireland and the United Kingdom.
My goal as a teacher is to provide you with the tools necessary to understand and develop in a safe and enjoyable way. I truly aspire to make everyone feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. It is not possible to make good music in any environment that is not relaxed.
This will be done by:
Understanding what it is you want from your lessons.
Choosing music together that you like and is appropriate for you.
Creating exercises to warm up, expand and develop your instrument.
And above all, have fun while doing so.
"Eoin is a really fantastic teacher! On top of being patient, his explanations are always very clear, and I am learning a lot through the lessons -- about singing techniques, but also music in general; being a linguist I also can attest he is very knowledgeable when it comes to phonetics. He also managed to put me at ease in no time even though I am a dreadfully shy person, which speaks volume about what a nice person he is."
"Clear teacher, happy with the results so far! The online setting works well with notes and instruction. Clear and easy to follow."
"Eoin has taught my daughter singing with his excellent skill and knowledge. His communication skill is exceptional and my daughter enjoys the lesson a lot. She has been able to learn many songs with great understanding of music and its theory. Highly recommend him!!"
"Eoin Foran is a hard-working and devoted musician, performer and teacher. He is constantly seeking to broaden his knowledge of vocal pedagogy through intensive research and subsequent practice in his own teaching. Eoin himself is highly skilled and experienced in all areas of vocal performance and understands the demands placed on present day musicians. These are attributes that feed directly into his teaching, cultivating an environment that is both enjoyable and lively, but focused and tailored to the needs of the individual student. It is thus without reservation that I recommend Eoin"
