Lucinda Bristow who is the founder of The Vocal Academy is the main tutor in Bristol and and has years of experience working with students of all ages and abilities, teaching in schools, setting up successful vocal schools in Kent, Hampshire, Mid, East and West Sussex, dep teaching for Bimm Bristol and also leading vocal coaching sessions at the O2 London, she is guaranteed to get the best out of your voice. 

Lucinda: "I  have great enthusiasm when it comes to teaching. I get a total buzz from seeing my students progress and start to discover their own voices, I love watching confidence grow and seeing proud parents reactions when they see how well their kids are doing. I would say I do know my stuff as a singer and tutor and will quickly work out the best way to get the best results from each student".

You will not only learn you how to improve technically as a singer but will also work on confidence at the same time. Teaching to all levels, even those who are convinced they cannot sing a note - give it a go, you’d be surprised what you can achieve! Lucinda also teaches people who are out singing as pro’s wanting to brush up on technique and vocal maintenance.

It can be very nerve racking going for your first singing lesson. You may not even be sure that you will even like it which is why Lucinda offers a FREE 30 MINUTE CONSULTATION so you can decide for yourself whether these lessons are right for you.



Working with students on whatever they choose whether that be Pop, Rock, Musical Theatre, Folk etc. Whether you're starting completely from scratch, you sing in a band, preparing for an audition, preparing for a performance, want to entergrades or are wanting direction on where to go with your singing we are here for you and will do our best to help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be as a singer.

Bristol TVA student organising gig for Bristol Heart Institute! 

Becky Nash who has been having lessons at TVA for quite some time had to take an extended break as she fell extremely ill  and had to have open heart surgery in 2016.  She made a promise to herself that if all went well, she would come back singing and organise a charity event to raise awareness of all the great work Bristol Heart Institute does. And so here is is! GO BECKY!! What a strong, positive lady. We're so pleased that you're back and well! Other TVA students will be singing too, what a lovely way to bring everybody together!  For more information on the gig or to donate please go to Becky's Just Giving Page

"I recently started singing lessons with Bernii and I’ve learnt so much. My throat used to hurt and get tired after singing. I had an hour and a half lesson yesterday, and after singing Sia songs which require a LOT of power, I realised my throat didn’t hurt at all, because of the really useful techniques Bernii had taught me.!"



"Have really enjoyed and learned a lot from my lessons with Bernie. She is really supportive but also manages to stretch me. My confidence has definitely improved and thus my singing and my enjoyment. Five stars from me!."


"My daughter came for singing lessons at The Vocal Academy. The teacher Lu was great with her and she really enjoyed her lessons. It was even nicer that the lessons took place in real music studios. Would recommend to anyone interested in singing."
