Hi! I'm Beccy, and I'm the person behind BHVA

I’ve been a singing teacher since 2011. Before doing this, despite having a love for music and studying at degree level, I have done project management, been involved in housing and sustainability policies in local government, and run some amazing buildings as a Serviced Offices Manager including 1-7 Harley Street, London.

I've also performed in some amazing places such as Washington National Cathedral, Verona Amphitheatre, and Tivoli Gardens. I've even sung for the Royal Family.

So why singing teaching? Well, 6 months after I got married, I turned to my husband and said that I wasn’t enjoying my day job (or words to that effect), and quit. I was already Music Director for Rother Community Choir, and it was this (and the lovely Sally Vennard) that inspired me to change careers.

Since then we’ve relocated to Northamptonshire, for my husband’s work.  Move forward a few years, I now have three children. Thinking life was too quiet for me, I decided to start my Post Grad Certificate in Vocal Pedagogy (very posh terms) which I completed in 2018.

Part of the research I undertook for this included looking into group classes and creating an evidence-based teaching programme. The main reasons behind this project was to try to make lessons as affordable as they can be, without losing out on great teaching. Beccy Hurrell Voice Academy is an extension of this research – to enable children (and adults) to have access to fun, engaging teaching, and enjoy the added benefits of making new friends. I’ve taken on a studio in the centre of Kettering, at The Yards to make this happen.

I’m now on my way to completing my Masters – with a focus on vocal tract resonance / acoustics and emotional intent. Basically, that’s the posh way of saying that by understanding how we can make different sounds in both our singing and speaking voices, we can benefit our teaching. In particular I will be looking at how utilising different emotional intentions can change what we hear and what is produced, and the how.

My research has been chosen to be presented at the Voice Geek Conference in April of this year. Last year I was a panellist on the young voice panel, discussing my research into group teaching practices.

My motto is ‘ANYONE CAN SING, YOU JUST NEED TO FIND YOUR TRUE VOICE’. This can be done through individual lessons, group classes, workshops and masterclasses. Just find the one(s) that works for you.
