Hope McNamara Sear trained in musical theatre at the Royal Academy of Music in London and has a special interest in the Estill model of voice training. This is a model of function that can be used to develop vocal skills for speaking and singing. Jo Estill’s philosophy was that "Everyone has a beautiful voice. You just have to know how to use it." Hope has been teaching voice for a number of years and is currently on the pathway to become a CMT (Certified Master Teacher) of The Estill Model.
From October, Hope will be teaching singing and voice to acting students at the University of Northampton. She runs a private voice studio, is the resident singing teacher for MYCO (Musical Youth Company of Oxford) and leads WOX VOX, a community choir in West Oxford. Hope also works regularly with Nia Williams and Matt Winkworth, performing and workshopping their new musical theatre work.
Hope Sear is currently not instructing any classes.
