Singing Lessons in Newcastle & Internationally

“I’ve had lessons with Kathryn for over two years now and she has greatly improved my singing. Throughout these two years she has helped find my chest voice, develop my confidence and helped me get into The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles. She goes above and beyond for her students, making me feel comfortable, welcome and relaxed in every lesson. I wouldn’t go to anyone else for singing.”

“I have been having singing lessons with Kathryn since she first started her business and throughout that time she has helped me so much, not only with developing my vocal technique but with my confidence. The lessons are fun and relaxed and she makes you feel so welcome. Not only is she my singing teacher but she is a close friend and I look forward to every lesson. I highly recommend her whether you’re just starting out or are more experienced and are looking to improve your technique. She gets to know your individual voice and alters the lesson specifically to suit your vocal needs.” Jasmine Storey

“A very long and demanding rehearsal last night, I was exhausted! However, my voice was not. I heard some sopranos behind me saying how hard the repertoire was on their voice. I must say that I didn’t feel any strain and there was no hoarseness on returning home. This is a great benefit of your method to me.” Caroline June

“I’ve just tracked Pavarotti singing Una Furtiva Lagrima note for note. I didn’t push it but hit all of the high notes. Also, a tenor called Jonas Kaufman, singing Cuore ‘ngrato. If you’re right about me being a tenor, this is me winning the lottery and it’s a whole lot better that money!” Peter Linton

“I have really enjoyed singing with you-you are a fab teacher!” Tom Spence

”It’s great to work with someone so special and professional” Betty Beck

“There was a time in my life when I couldn’t even sit in the same room as someone new and sing but, Kathryn taught me to turn everything into a positive and a learning curve, to not worry about what other people are thinking and to own all that I do. From being a timid 13 year old to a 16 year old taking on new challenges. Couldn’t have done it without her support over the years. Thank you so much Kathryn for changing my life. You are the best singing teacher not only in Newcastle but the whole of the UK. I have never known such a smart woman…….everything you say has power and uplifts me every time I walk out of your studio” Caitlin Dixon

“I just got your email about raising your prices and I wanted to say “well done”. You are exceptionally good at what you do and you’ve put a lot into your work and craft. It is the right decision and I have no hesitation in saying that the value you provide to your students is worth it. Wishing you even more success in the future.” John Hill

“Kathryn Lowdon is an excellent teacher; so patient and knowledgeable. But, primarily a very inspiring person who has given me lots of confidence to find and develop my voice. She is a hard worker and seems to be constantly in her studio either teaching, practising or learning the drums. But finally, she is a belting singer! Her passion for music is matched only by her ability. I am a devoted disciple of Kathryn’s and I have been extremely fortunate to be mentored by one of Newcastle’s finest”. Joe Fowler

“I’ve had lessons with Kathryn for over two years now and she has greatly improved my singing. Throughout these two years she has helped find my chest voice, develop my confidence and helped me get into The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles. She goes above and beyond for her students, making them feel comfortable, welcome and relaxed in every lesson. I wouldn’t go to anyone else for singing, and sometimes, life advice.” Rachel Beck

“Thank you Kathryn, you’ve really helped me since I first started with you in 2017 and now I feel like I can accomplish anything.” Varun Thaman

“I would like to take the time to thank you personally for tonight. What an amazing show and the work you do is unbelievable. You have this glow and presence about you that is wonderful. I really didn’t think Caitlin would get up and sing tonight but with all of her hard work she did. Thanks for believing in her!” Lisa Locket
