SINGING LESSONS AND VOCAL COACHING
Welcome to my website.
My name is Barry Webb. I sang with the Royal Opera House from 1998 to 2011 and then in Germany and the Czech Republic. I am now based in Liverpool, where I run Voice Lessons Liverpool.
I offer professional and effective vocal tuition in 3 locations in Central and North Liverpool, and Central Manchester.
I am a singing teacher and professional singer working as a musician for over 30 years.
My professional singing career has taken me throughout the UK and abroad to such places as New York, Milan, Monaco, Madrid, Germany, Eastern Europe; I teach from the experience of performing at the highest level.
I can help change and improve voices.
People come to me from established music and arts schools and from other singing teachers. I teach other singing teachers.
My pupils sing solos with music theatre companies, opera companies, and in jazz and pop groups. I list on this site some of the huge and diverse repertoire I cover with my pupils.
My pupils also take exams with the ABRSM and other boards.
Congratulations to my singing pupils Hannah Whittle Sefton and Dominic Foord on getting Distinctions in their Grade 8 ABRSM exams!!
WHO I TEACH?
Beginners and advanced singers come to Voice Lessons Liverpool for lessons. People who sing for fun, or want to go on to a professional level. Teaching thrills me. It is great to see a pupil make progress.
Voice Lessons Liverpool helps people to sing in all styles of music.

WHY CHOOSE ME AS YOUR TEACHER?
Singing has been part of my life since childhood. I sang as a boy in Oxford as a chorister (See the picture of the record I made privately on 1st January 1970). Later, I studied singing at the RNCM in Manchester, followed by the RSC in Glasgow, two of the top music colleges in the World.
I teach a technique learnt from the 12 teachers I have been privileged to learn with over the years. I have an armoury of exercises and metaphors to give you a Bel Canto method of singing.
On top of this, I am a qualified teacher with a Cambridge Masters (M.A. Hons), and Post Graduate Certificate in Education, I was made a Fellow of the Incorporated Society of Musicians in 2018 and work as an active performer, composer, and conductor of choruses and orchestras.
I play the piano to accompany your lessons, which is better than stopping and starting a backing-tape or playing one or two notes, methods adopted by many teachers.
