Hi, I am Michelle Stratford, a singing teacher and vocal coach offering singing lessons in Bromley, Chislehurst, Orpington and surrounding areas.I teach all styles of music, giving singing lessons and vocal coaching to young beginners through to to well established performing artists of all ages. Many of my students have successfully gained entrance to Performing Arts Colleges, including;The Brit School, Bird College, Italia Conti, The Centre Performing Arts college.I have also successfully coached students in preparation for West End auditions, and popular television shows such as the X Factor and The Voice, as well as record company searches. Primarily, my aim is to build confidence in a student and teach them how to get the very best from their voice.
"Amelia is 13 and has been with Michelle for over 3 years and in that time she has developed beyond anything I could have hoped for. When she started she was very shy with average ability but she is now so much more confident and sings so beautifully with great tone and power. It’s a dramatic transformation and it really is down to Michelle’s teaching. In particular the control and breathing techniques which are essential. But most importantly Amelia really enjoys her lessons and it certainly is a highlight of her week. Michelle is an excellent teacher with a wonderfully encouraging nature and she is a genuinely lovely person. I can’t recommend her highly enough."

She was recently invited to sing at a wedding in Kosovo where she performed for the opening dance.This wouldn't have happend without the help of Michelle , thank you xx"
"Michelle has really helped me to control my breathing, produce a smoother sound and to hit notes I didn’t think I could reach, all of which has helped a great deal with my confidence. Thoroughly enjoy each lesson."

"I engaged Michelle Stratford to coach the Dulwich Air Cadets Ensemble, “The High Wood Chevrons” (made up of teenagers aged 16 to 17) in voice projection and stage presence. Michelle did a first class job in assisting the Ensemble to win the Air Cadets National Music Championship. Her coaching and encouragement went a long way in improving the Ensemble’s confidence. THANK YOU, Michelle. You are fantastic and a true professional."
