Professional singing lessons within 40 minutes of Wigan
One of the UK's most respected and sought-after vocal coaches, Andy Follin is located in St Helens. As the only Certified Master Teacher (CMT) of Estill Voice Training™ (EVT) working in the North and West of the UK, Andy is bringing this revolutionary singing technique to singers in the Wigan area for the first time. Before now, students had to travel to London or Glasgow to receive such high-class vocal coaching.
Singing lessons with Andy will give you complete control over your voice, allowing you to sing in any style, in any repertoire, all with complete skill, understanding and control.
Vocal Skills Studio
Andy's main teaching base is a modern, custom-built studio in Alexandra Business Park on the outskirts of St Helens. Overlooking the landscaped gardens and fountains, the studio is light, airy and spacious. It is totally soundproofed and fully equipped to record your lessons.
Formerly Pilkingtons head office, this grade 2-listed building is possibly the most iconic in the North West of England.
On-site facilities include 24 hour secure parking and reception, a cafe and restaurant. The studio is on the ground floor and fully-accessible from the car park.
