About Becki & The IVA Technique

Becki has always had a huge passion for music. She performed regularly at venues in her hometown of Coventry as one half of an acoustic duo, and has many years experience in vocal technique.

She studied Graded Classical Voice with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and in November 2016 enrolled as a Student Teacher with the Institute of Vocal Advancement.

Becki is proud to have achieved Instructor Level 1 with the IVA in October 2017. At the cutting edge of vocal research, the IVA technique aims to train voices to sing in a free and natural manner, smoothly, from the bottom of the range to the to with no sudden breaks or changes in quality. This helps improve a singers range, endurance, tone, vocal strength and quality across all styles of music without fatigue or damage to the voice.

She is fortunate enough to currently be training with some of the worlds leading Vocal Coaches, Master Teachers and Voice Trainers through the IVA, and is continually building on her knowledge and experience in voice training through regular education, exams and the continual development of her own voice.

Voice Training That's Personalised to You!

Here at Vocalise, you will receive a personalised vocal assessment at the beginning of every lesson. From there, we will work through a range of exercises that are tailored to your voice. You will receive an ongoing vocal development plan where we continually work to build on previous achievements to give you access to a voice that is free from strain, breaks and stress.

You don’t need to be able to read music! So many people worry that in order to sing, you have to be competent in sight reading - it's not true. Although if that's something you are interested in learning, Becki is also qualified to teach music theory - get in touch for more information!

Working in Partnership with LJC Vocal Studios

The woman behind LJC Vocal Studios is Lucy McLean, York’s highest qualified IVA Vocal Coach. In 2010 Lucy began training in Speech Level Singing technique, where she achieved a Level 1 qualification. Lucy has since left the Speech Level Singing organisation to join the IVA, a new and exciting venture for singing teachers.

The IVA is a non-profit organisation that specialises in training teachers of singing as well as funding scientific research of the voice. Lucy is really enjoying being part of the IVA having already attended their European Mini Conference in both 2013 & 2014 as well as attending their International Conference in California in May 2014. The IVA offers exceptional training for singing teachers and Lucy is set to continue to learn a great deal about the voice and gradually perfect her knowledge so that she can train people even more effectively. She also passed her Instructor 3.5 exams in late 2016 and is now a qualified Level 3.5 IVA Instructor.
