Our Venue

All singing lessons and vocal coaching lessons take place in St Francis Church, Ashton Gate, Bristol. The Church occupies a prominent position on busy North Street and is just opposite the well known Tobacco Factory building,

The church originally opened in 1887 but was destroyed by a bomb during the Good Friday Bristol Blitz of 1941 when it sustained a direct hit in the middle of the night. The church was rebuilt immediately after the war and reopened in 1953, the first church in Bristol to be reopened following closure due to bomb damage This new building, the current day church, is open, light, spacious and airy and is a previous winner of an award for good modern architecture from the Royal Institue of British Architects.

Lessons take place either in the main body of the church or in a music and teaching room at the rear of the building. The size of the main body of the church makes for a perfect space for work on voice projection and delivery. There is a modern sound system which allows for work on microphone technique. The teaching room is much smaller, well heated with a piano and keyboard to accompany singing or a CD player for the use of backing tracks. There is also a whiteboard for the teaching of more detailed voice theory and technique.
