English Language and Diction Coaching
"Clarity of text and dramatic meaning have always been outstanding characteristics of Paul Carey Jones’ work. His approach to diction and communication on stage is methodical and meticulous in its attention to detail, and the results are second to none." - Oliver Mears, Director of Opera, Royal Opera House, London
Paul's particular passion is for the clarity and ease of singing in the English language. He has experience of coaching singers from a variety of backgrounds - professional and amateur, operatic, classical and popular styles, soloists and groups/choirs, native and foreign language speakers. He is committed in his belief that English can be a natural language of song, and that, with the right training, quality of singing and clarity of text can be achieved by any singer without compromising either.
