He has been able to develop my skills and learn from working with these professionals and continue to learn from working on various productions. 

 

Samuel was most recently seen in the National Theatre production of The Normal Heart from September- November, 2021. Directed by Dominic Cooke, and starring Ben Daniels, Liz Carr, and Dino Fetscher. 

Samuel has been teaching acting and singing since leaving drama school in 2016, working with numerous clients of different ages and varying abilities to help achieve their goals. He has worked both face-to-face, as well as remotely; whatever suits the client best and obviously since the Pandemic, the ability to teach remotely has become very useful and vital! It was for this exact reason he decided to start The Vocal Lists Ltd. 

The main styles of singing he focuses on are Musical Theatre, Legit, and Pop. However, the various techniques and methods that he applies to his teaching can help to strengthen any voice regardless of what your chosen style of singing and/ or speaking is.

No one is incapable of using their voice to its full potential; and unlocking that full potential can open a door to a whole world of benefits, regardless of what industry you work in. It can also help to build personal confidence and give you a skill that you can hold on to for life! Learning a skill based around your voice can increase your confidence levels, boost your productivity and creativity and, guess what, next time your friends suggest a night out at a karaoke bar, you're going to wipe the floor with your new ability! 

Samuel is currently offering 'In-person' sessions to clients living in the Surrey area, as well as online-based sessions. 

You can discuss this with Samuel when you make an enquiry.
