The Vocal Academy - Horsham

In recent years, Lu Bristow (Founder of The Vocal Academy) has taught under 18's and group lessons in the Horsham area and having played in many local venues herself, knows just how much the people of Horsham love their music. Lu is also a firm believer of the health benefits singing can bring to an individual and felt it was the right time to set up The Vocal Academy in Horsham, with the view to create performance opportunities in the future for those who want to get involved!

Jacinda's Experience:

Jacinda is a highly motivated, professional and enthusiastic singing teacher with teaching experience at contemporary performing arts schools in West Sussex and as a private vocal coach. She graduated from The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) with a BMus Degree and CertHE Diploma in Professional Music Performance Vocals.


Jacinda currently works at the already successful TVA Worthing and specialises in teaching vocal technique/health, performance skills, audition preparation, artist development, graded music exams (vocals) and a variety of contemporary genres. 

Jacinda: ‘My main focus when teaching students is to build a solid foundation on which they can develop and use their voice in the correct manner and to its full potential. I feel it’s important to create a fun, supportive, non-judgemental space where students can learn from their mistakes and know its perfectly human to make them!’
