Florence Lorraine Worley was trained as a choral scholar in Leicester and later as a classical soprano and sang as a professional singer for over 30 years.

Her experience includes many genres, including early music, choral, recitals, opera, musical theatre and pop.

Much of her work incorporates care of the voice, especially with developing young voices.

Recently she has gained two of the most prestigious degrees in vocal pedagogy under the direction of Debbie Winter of Voice Workshop. This, aligned with her studies in songbird research has led her to innovative and evidence-based approaches regarding how the singing brain operates.

Her work is new and refreshing while still connected to the tried and tested old historical pedagogy.

She was awarded a distinction on her research into the ‘language of vowels’.

Testimonials

Lorraine Worley: singing teacher extraordinaire
Read More
I first met, or rather heard Lorraine at a musical party almost half my lifetime ago! Her voice was pure, honey-smooth and enchanting. I remember saying, “if you can teach me to sing like you, I’d love to try some lessons”!

Lorraine has a mine of teaching experience, grounded in anything from earthy human stories to esoteric neuropsychological research with birdsong (and everything else) in between. She listens with respect to her pupils’ hopes, wishes - and fears - as well as to their voices. Then she delves into her experience to unearth a back-story to clarify and agree with the pupil the most useful target for the occasion, while simultaneously devising, applying and justifying a method to move towards it.

You might find yourself benefitting from synesthesia, blending smooth colours with your voice on the practice-room wall or perhaps from singing from a space hopper, while trying to take your feet off the floor! Fun and laughter is allowed but there is however, no slacking. You are just as likely to benefit from practising the latest American singing exercises, clarified by anatomical charts and underpinned by research.

Each lesson is different, spiced with joy, empowering and re-energising ones love of singing.

To Mrs Worley

Thank you for all the help and support over the past 7 years. Gaining my grade 8 has been a major achievement in my life and without your encouragement I might not have achieved this, so thanks again.

All the best in the future.

We really enjoyed hearing your love of Esperanza Spalding and jazz music generally. You certainly connect with your singing passionately and music seems to mean a lot to you. You have a round and resonant voice. You also sing with a lovely sense of freedom...

Dear Lorraine,

I hope this finds you well. I just wanted to send a quick card to thank you for all you taught me before I went to university. I have just graduated from Royal Holloway with a 2:1 Honours degree, achieving 1st class grades in both my solo vocal performance and dissertation (which explored the adolescent voice change and its impact on youth identity).

Your training and care inspired me to look more into these areas, and thanks to this, I have just been accepted to study on MMus in musicology and Ethnomusicology at King’s College London.

I still love my choral singing and currently hold an alto choral scholarship at the London Youth Choir, and also volunteer for a communication and special needs choir who are teaching me Makaton.

I would love to stay more in contact, I couldn’t have done this without you.

Thank you, Anna Lalande x

Dear Mrs Worley

Just a note and some rather pretty candles to say thank you. Singing has, thanks to you, become such a massive part of my life. I don’t know how I survived without it. I’ll come back and visit!

Thanks again,
Rowan xx

I found Lorraine on the web when searching for a local teacher for my daughter and immediately was drawn to contacting her due to all her experience.

On speaking to her, straight away I knew she was the right person; Lorraine still had the love and enthusiasm in her profession proved by the fact she was finishing studying for her MA. With all her teaching and help this led to a very high grade 8 exam result.

Thank you so much and all the very best for the future.
