BIOGRAPHY  

Rosie trained with the vocal and operatic department at The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, graduating with a First Class BMus (Hons). She went on to pursue a Master of Arts at the prestigious Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.  As a performer, Rosie has worked in opera, musical theatre, choral, film and is currently performs all over the UK and Europe as a jazz and cabaret soloist.

 

Prior to attending Birmingham Conservatoire, Rosie trained with the National Youth Choir of Great Britain and the National Youth Theatre. Her classical training led her to pursue a degree in music and it was whilst studying at Mountview Rosie discovered Estill and became fascinated with the mechanics and flexibility of the voice as an instrument.

 

Since graduating Rosie led a successful portfolio career as a teacher, singer and actress. Over the years, Rosie became interested more in music education and working with young voices and has worked in a variety of settings and contexts. Her busy performance career is invaluble in supporting this work and allows Rosie to teach a variety of styles and genres.
