Inês Simões - the teacher

I have been professor of voice, piano, ear training and music theory both privately and within music schools.

I have even been part of a project with classes for babies.

Growing up, my love for singing and classical music definitely came from the wonderful experience I had as a music student. The impact my teachers had on me - from age 4 through to university - has shaped me into the singer I am today and I have always wanted to transmit the same joy to others.

If you are looking for serious work as a voice student - you came to the right place!

My solo career encompasses a wide repertoire - from baroque to contemporary; in opera, oratory and song recital and in numerous languages.

If you are looking to learn the basics of voice or piano or even just begin with music theory - you came to the right place!

My experience of over a decade of teaching, from little 4 month old babies (Gordon method) to private 80 year old enthusiastic students makes me the right teacher for you.


Please take a look at my credentials and pick what kind of lessons apply to you:

- Música Por Medida for the amateur to Conservatory level student * Please notice that during Covid times all lessons will be online!

- Online Voice Lessons for advanced singers (university level) or professionals
