Meet Hannah, Head Vocal Coach
Hi, I’m Hannah!
I’ve spent the last 15 years uncovering the intricacies and complexities of the voice. And, it’s opened doors for me in ways I never thought imaginable.
From playing lead theatrical roles, touring internationally with my own shows, supporting the one and only Michael Ball, to voicing characters on blockbuster video games, my career so far has been eclectic and fun.
But, after being approached by a number of aspiring singers, I saw that I could make an even greater impact through teaching (not that I’ve stopped performing!).
For 99% of students though, the problem wasn’t their voice… they just needed more confidence!
I started Happy Voices to help people realise that learning to sing is more than just being able to hold a note in tune.
It’s about being able to express yourself confidently; to speak and sing with intention and most importantly, to feel happy with your own voice.
Hundreds of people have changed their lives by uncovering their true voice… from advancing their careers to improving their relationships.
Are you ready to join in?
Hannah is an actor and voice coach based in Glasgow. After receiving a music scholarship at Fettes College, she trained with Scottish Opera following 7 years of singing lessons in Italian Classical/Bel Canto technique with Anne Lewis (GSMD).
Her university years at Durham (Psychology) were spent mostly in the theatre where Hannah was involved with over 25 students productions: touring, performing at the local theatres and at the Edinburgh Festival. It was then she decided to formalise her love for theatre and performance, applying successfully to attend the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
Graduating with a distinction in Musical Theatre, Hannah’s vocal training at the RCS with the likes Scott Harrison, Ros Steen, Bill Wright, Jean Sangster and Pat Hay opened up her mind as to the endless possibilities of the voice and the actual science behind what is a very delicate, emotional creature at times.
Influenced by Estill, Bel Canto, SSL, CVT, SOVT, Husler, Nadine George, Alexander Technique and the Laban Movement, Hannah’s style of teaching combines a number of ideologies which are tailored to suit each individual pupil. No-one is exactly the same in the way they learn, and in this sense, no one ‘school of thought’ will 100% satisfy every pupil and singer. Her research is bolstered by her own career as an actor and her degree in Psychology, aiding her teaching methods from both a methodical and practical perspective.
As a performer, Hannah has performed across the world in musicals, plays and everything in between.

She also plays violin and piano, and always rises to a good challenge…!

Your Learning Process
Set Achievable Goals
Total beginner? No idea how where to start? Fear not, Hannah and you will sit down together in your first lesson, listen to your voice and concerns right now before setting goals together which are realistic but also provide you with a little challenge. In facing our fears, we grow the most!
Make Steady Progress
Rome was not built in a day. In the same way, your voice is an instrument which requires strong foundations on which to build and grow and support your sound. Taking your time to build your vocal foundation at the start with Hannah will pay dividends in the future; those high notes, that sound quality, that confidence – they are all achievable with time, good practise and taking the right steps.
Hannah also sends a post-lesson email detailing what happened in the lesson, new terms and new steps you have taken together, complete with MP3s to listen, follow and practise alongside before your next lesson. Little and often is best, warming up the voice in the morning and trying out the exercises in the freedom of your own space and sound.

Come along with an open mind for your first lesson. Hannah will welcome you, have a quick consultation about your background and voice before getting onto your feet for some warm-up, technique and singing!
Set Your Goals
This is the number one thing to do during your 1st lesson. Work out your ‘why’, and from there, you can set your goal and aim. Eg: Why = I get embarrassed easily. Goal = to sing an open mic night, face my fear and boost my confidence!
Hannah will help you reach your goal on a structured, challenging and creative journey which is unique to you. Buckle in!
