Nicola offers individual training & mentoring for singing teachers. She also runs courses for training singers and teachers in applied anatomy, vocal technique and the use of cutting-edge motor training to embody the voice.

Motor training tools for singers, voice & vocal coaches


​Nicola has been working with neuroscientists and anatomists in London, Oxford and Wales to create the most efficient and successful training programme for singers. 

She has co-authored and researched extensively with the neuro-anatomist Dr Alan Watson at Cardiff University.

The Embotube


Nicola’s passion for clarifying the language used to teach singing has resulted in a highly effective anatomy-based image-vocabulary for conveying vocal technique. She has worked for 14 years to develop  a ground-breaking motor training system for singers and teachers of singing. She has presented this material at national and international voice conferences with uptake of the training in Europe, USA and Australia.
