Gina has been teaching singing in and around Sheffield since graduating from the University of Sheffield in 2010 with a First Class degree in Music. Though she is classically trained, Gina has been a gigging pop/jazz singer since 2007. Her time fronting the indie-pop band Screaming Maldini saw her touring the UK, France and even Japan where the band’s album reached No.2 in the album charts. As well as singing, Gina has been song-writing for over a decade and is still writing and gigging with her most recent project, Before Breakfast.
As a professional singer, Gina has also supported Justin Bieber at Sheffield Arena with NYC outfit ‘The Knocks”, recorded a live session in Abbey Road Studios, played for BBC Introducing in Hyde Park, had radio play on BBC 6Music and has recently recorded original music for BBC 2.
As well as ensuring technically strong lessons, often using the Estill method, Gina encourages each student to discover the colours, tones and expression in their voices to communicate with audiences and develop a performance style. She leads pop choir ‘Neighbourhood Voices’ at Union St, a community choir in Walkley and works with Carney Academy on a regular basis.
