I have been a student of Scot’s for going on 8 years, and in the last two I have taken on and off lessons in-between my studies at the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Arts (NASDA).
I have learnt some amazing skills in singing and even acting techniques that have helped me throughout my journey in the performing arts.
I started lessons as a fun hobby since I loved to sing, and Scot helped me build the techniques needed for the musical theatre world. He has supported and helped me on countless auditions that sometimes I would throw at him a few days prior, for which he kindly found spare time.
During many of my recent auditions I have been praised for my vocal improvement since the last time I had auditioned with the company, and they would always ask who my tutor was, which I would proudly say was Scot Hall.
Scot has helped me to realise my dream in the performing arts industry and has always encouraged me to pursue it. Which led me into auditioning for NASDA, which has been the best decision I have ever made.
Scot not only helps you to get the best vocal techniques but will explain why they are useful for particular styles. Although I am training in musical theatre, through my lessons with Scot he has allowed me to be as broad as I possibly can be – teaching me folk and opera for example so I could be ready for any audition.
I know that Scot tailors his lessons to my desires and future goals, but if I ever want to change it up he is willing and able to discuss and help me with whatever I am wanting to do even if it’s adding in some Pop songs or gaining repertoire for singing at a school function.
I truly believe that I would not be where I am today or as confident with my voice if I hadn’t spent these years studying with Scot. Not only is he a fantastic teacher but he truly cares for each one of his students which you can see in all his showcases throughout the year, which I was lucky enough to be apart of his very first back in 2014.
If you are thinking of starting lessons in singing I would highly highly recommend Scot.
