Frith is a career teacher with over 26 years’ experience of teaching singers of all abilities and over a wide age range.
Her father was her first singing teacher. She studied Music and Modern Languages at Auckland University and competed successfully in competitions and festivals in Auckland before going to Australia in 1981 to study on the Diploma of Performing Arts (Opera) course in Adelaide.
In 1982, she moved to the UK to study singing. She won an Ian Fleming Award and was awarded three scholarships for courses with the Britten-Pears School, working with Peter Pears, Nancy Evans, Joan Cross, Jan de Gaetani and Graham Johnson.
Frith performed in concert, opera, oratorio and street theatre in London for the next 7 years. Her teachers at this time included Janice Chapman and Paul Hamburger.
Frith is indebted to the British Voice Association and the courses that it has run over the last 25 years or so for introducing her to voice science, and she is pleased to have been a Director of the BVA from 2010 to 2015.
She has been Teacher, Teacher in Residence and Auditions Panelist with the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain and teaches singing at St Paul’s Girls’ School in Hammersmith and at Redmaids High School in Bristol, as well as running a thriving private practice.
Frith’s teaching is based on a physiologically informed way of thinking about how the voice works. This model is constantly changing to include new developments, and while this work is challenging it is also enormously exciting.
