Singing

We have four singing teachers working at the NMC.

Jenny Moore

Jenny began singing at the age of 13 in small music groups and school performances. After studying music at Newcastle College she sang in various bands in North East England and on cruise ships around the world - she has recently returned from a two-month cruise in the Caribbean. As well as her busy teaching schedule at the NMC and in local schools Jenny sings with local bands, specialising in function work.

Richard Judson MMus BA(Hons) DipABRSM

Richard began singing at an early age with his local church choir and went on to sing with the National Youth Choir of Great Britain. He then completed a BA (Hons) in Communication Arts specialising in music at York St. John College, followed by a masters degree in vocal performance at The University of Newcastle. As well as the NMC, Richard teaches in schools and colleges and works as a freelance vocal coach and musical director with theatre groups and choirs. He also works with several bands and ensembles as a vocalist, guitarist, bassist and pianist.
