Opera

After being spotted through the medium of musical theatre, as having good operatic potential, and obtaining accompanying sponsorships, Natasha decided to retrain her voice for the operatic stage. This took a career change, as she went to study singing in Madrid for 4 years, to concentrate on the operatic and classical repertoire.

On returning to England in 2003, she undertook ‘advanced diploma in Opera’, run by Mary Hill, Birkbeck University, London, graduating with distinction.

Musical Theatre

Coming from a musical and a theatrical family, Natasha was introduced to singing at a young age, and first started performing with her guitar at the age of 15, in folk bars and pubs.

She has sung in venues as wide ranging as beer festivals, folk festivals, medieval banquets, hotels, bars and pubs. She has sung popular Folk, Jazz, Musical Theatre and Cabaret repertoire.
