Singing Lessons With David Horton – Professional tenor, singing teacher and voice coach

Whether you are a young singer hoping to build your technique and confidence, a keen amateur looking to improve your vocal skills, or even a seasoned professional singer seeking some new technical advice, then you’ve come to the right place!

I am an opera singer and experienced singing tutor based in central York, having recently relocated from London. I hold two postgraduate degrees in singing, and maintain a busy teaching diary alongside my ongoing performance commitments. I’m comfortable working with singers of any age and level, with a central focus on healthy vocal technique to support numerous musical styles as well as acting or public speaking.

I teach a simple and easy-to-grasp singing technique that can be applied and expanded across a number of different vocal disciplines. Opera and classical are my speciality but I can also teach musical theatre students and can hone a true “legit” sound.

I can offer regular lessons to support you in the development of your singing goals, but am equally delighted to take on pupils for short-term or one-off sessions in preparation for performances or auditions. In addition, if you are an individual looking to improve your speaking voice for acting or public speaking, I can offer techniques to help you with this and make significant changes to the quality and stamina of your voice and breath.

“David is a wonderful teacher! Makes you feel very confident and fulfilled after a session.”

Henrique (Actor and Musical Theatre performer)
“Started my lessons with David a month ago and I can already say I have a new voice, a voice that I never heard before. I’ve been through many singing teachers but no one who was able to find the ways of teaching me the right/safe way of singing, and that’s what most impressed about David, on our first lesson I could already hear a much more clear and interesting voice than I ever heard coming out of my mouth. The lessons are very relaxed and fun, David always makes sure I’m not nervous, feeling insecure or scared of singing something. I’m already looking forward to my next lesson.”

Nina (Parent of Student)
“David is an amazing singer with a phenomenal voice! He was able to connect with my 7 year old straight away and his friendly approach makes my son love singing lessons the most! I would warmly suggest to anyone who is thinking of having singing lessons to try them with David!”
