Welcome to Dexter Vocals

I am Joey Dexter - a singing coach based in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, teaching people in the Holmfirth, Huddersfield and Manchester areas.

Music and singing have been lifelong passions. I want it to be one for you too.

If you love singing and music and would like to learn more or improve your technique, it would be great to hear from you!

I began training as a singer aged nine, as a choral scholar at Ampleforth College, and went onto graduate from The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. My background is in classical singing and classical singing technique, so a strong and practical understanding of techinique is the foundation of my work as a coach.


My professional career has been wonderfully varied, having had the pleasure to work in music theatre, opera and pop genres. As a teacher, this variety gives me insight into the numerous aspects of the various singing styles, allowing me to draw on the most effective teaching methods and appropriate techniques.

I teach everyone from hobbyists to professionals, including students preparing for ABRSM and Trinity graded examinations, so whatever your level, I'll be able to help you improve
