Colleen taught A level and BTEC performing arts in dance drama and music for 2 years and has now been self-employed specialising as a vocal trainer for over a decade.

Colleen Bleazard from HIW is a skilled and talented singing teacher and album producer. Through Colleen’s creative and quirky teaching style, I’ve been able to learn complex harmonies, build my vocal strength and perform publicly with confidence. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work on a studio album, The Gospel of Peace, with Colleen and got to witness her amazing gift for creating harmonies and turning simple recordings into works of art.

I also highly recommend Collen’s Vocal Gym as an essential part of every professional singer’s toolkit – it’s what I use to warm up on my way to every gig.

I have only recently begun studying singing with Colleen but am already benefiting greatly from her experience and skill. She is very passionate about singing and I've already learned a great deal from her. I look forward to an increasing confidence and development of my singing abilities under her tutelage.

What can I say but yes yes yes yes.
Colleen is so great with my 11 year old boy Connor.
She just seems to understand him and he really does enjoy the time he has with her.

Colleen is amazing with my 9 year old daughter and her facilities are better than any I have experienced before. Colleen has the experience and knowledge required to teach but most importantly Colleen has an enthusiasm and love that she shares with her students. My daughter loves her time with Colleen and as such I couldn't recommend her more.
