Paul's Vocal Academy

Singing Teacher & Vocal Coach

In the spotlight: Merseyside-based VIDLA graduate Paul Loxton

We’re always proud of our hard-working graduates and we’re delighted to spotlight Paul Loxton, who recently completed his VIDLA qualification and has now launched his own private teaching practice on Merseyside, so all of you folks in the North West who might be looking for a singing teacher are in luck!

Paul is a hugely experienced West End and touring singer, actor and dancer with credits including Sherlock Holmes – The Musical at The Cambridge, playing Baby John in the national tour of West Side Story, and others too many to list. He has even sung for Her Majesty The Queen, The Queen Mother and Princess Margaret at The London Palladium. Having heard him sing, we can see why – he’s got a truly wonderful voice!

But of course, being a great performer and being a great teacher don’t always go hand in hand, and that’s where the VIDLA training comes in. As with so many of our students, Paul didn’t want to rely on simply passing on what he already knew – although ‘what he already knew’ was pretty extensive! He wanted to learn how to break it down and make it work for other people… and his results showed that he’s pretty great at that too!

Paul is taking on students as we speak, so if you would like to know more about this fabulous teacher, please check in on his website and his facebook page.

Good luck Paul! We wish you every success and know that you will be a huge asset to the singers of Merseyside!

'As someone who never really considered myself as a singer but had a desire to sing, I was very nervous about taking lessons. But straight from the first lesson Paul gave me a confidence to sing. I felt relaxed and at ease and if I made a mistake or hit a bum note I was not made to feel uncomfortable or silly but I was given to confidence to carry on and to learn from this and with the right help I and encouragement I improved and also had a lot of fun learning a new skill. I high recommend Paul to new students.' - Richard

'As a singer i felt i wanted to work not only on my technique but also on my performance skills. After spending time with Paul i found i gained more confidence in my performance and also was less tired after a performance due to the work we did on my breathing. I was amazed by the results. Thank you for your Help!'  - Helen 

' I was struggling to reach my top notes, which was holding me back with my perfomances, but with Paul's help they are now stronger and my pitching has also improved ten fold. I am now hitting notes easily that i was really struggling with before. I can now tackle songs that were beyind me before.'   - Matthew
