Ian Preston has been coaching singers in London for over 7 years, helping them to free their voices & express themselves in song. The process of transformation his clients undertake still astounds him.
Ian first studied with Angela Caine at Voice Gym, and is a big proponent of the philosophy that the voice comes from the body- that a free, flexible & strong body provides the physical platform for a dynamic & exciting voice. He further studied & mentored with Jenny May in London, developing a comprehensive working knowledge of the voice through a multitude of contemporary vocal theorists.
Ian is first & foremost a musician, a singer-songwriter, and producer himself, and he brings his rich musical experience & history to bear in his teaching. He believes in the uniqueness of the individual- the Soul & depth of the voice- and aims to keep things as simple as possible for his clients. We each have a story to tell, and its in finding & singing this story, & helping to unearth it in others, that fascinates him.
Ian plays guitar and keyboards, produces his own music & has appeared on stages across London, from the Windmill in Brixton, to the Slaughtered Lamb in Soho. He has promoted & run showcase music nights in Brighton, and is also an avid studio enthusiast- running studios in Brighton, Castle Cary, Bermondsey, & Hoxton.
