Peter Taylor (Voice)
Peter has responsibility for coordinating singing projects across Sheffield, as well as leading Singing Festivals and teaching both specialist singing lessons and whole class singing.
After a childhood filled with singing in school and church choirs, as well as rock and soul bands and in musical theatre, Peter achieved a Post-graduate Diploma in Music (Vocal and Operatic Studies) at Birmingham Conservatoire in 2003. Since then he has taught singing in schools, specialist colleges, universities and privately and believes passionately that everyone can learn to sing. Peter’s teaching is based on a firm understanding of the physiology of the voice, allowing him to help singers develop an understanding of how they can be in full control of their instrument.
Peter conducts Sheffield University Singers’ Society Chorus, performs regularly as baritone soloist and choral singer across the UK and is in demand to lead workshops in vocal technique for singers.
Through Sheffield Music Hub, Peter works as a consultant to Out of the Ark, helping them to develop a series of high quality CPD sessions for schools and music educators nationwide and has recently presented workshops at the Scottish Association of Music Education conference.
