As well as being in demand for individual singing lessons, Elaine is very active as a vocal coach with local musical societies, theatre schools and dance schools. She also works with advanced students to advise on repertoire for auditions and performances.

Elaine currently works with Lincolnshire Star Academy senior students as a vocal coach on a long term basis. She attends classes throughout the year and works with the students on vocals for their annual performance and their musical theatre exams. This has enabled the students to gain in confidence and substantially improve their vocal performances.

Elaine also works as a vocal coach (alongside her work as a musical director) for local amateur society The Grantham Singers. Elaine delivers group and one-to-one vocal coaching to the soloists of each production working not only on note-learning but also the quality of sound being produced. This has enabled the society to encourage young and previously undiscovered talent and use it within their productions. 


 

"My own son has benefited greatly from her kindness and expertise to such an extent that he is now considering Musical Theatre as a career." 

 

"Under Musical Director Elaine Bishop's stewardship, the Grantham Singers have consistently brought new young talent to the stage and this year was no exception." (Grantham Journal review, 'The Mikado', 2009)
