My name is Gordon Robertson. I am one of the UK's most versatile vocalists, and musicians performing full-time as a function, wedding, corporate event and tribute entertainer across the UK, and also as an original artist, with weekly Spotify streams around 5.8k.
I completed my Grade 8 in Voice (143/150 Distinction) at age 16, I've competed in several Edinburgh International Music Festival classes, winning many including a gold medal in a vocal recital class in 2010. I've performed at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival over 10 times, and most recently in 2019, I was selected to originate the part of 'Kiran' in a professional production of the new musical 'Quantum' at the Fringe.
After school, I studied classical voice at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, securing a Diploma in Higher Education (Music Performance) before graduating with a First Class BA (hons) in Performance Industries from the University of Wolverhampton in association with The Academy of Music and Sound, Glasgow in September 2017. I also studied at New College Lanarkshire in Motherwell alongside Lewis Capaldi, and Paige Turley (BGT, Love Island). See me sing with Paige here.
My extensive vocal training qualifications give me the ability to perform everything from classical music to chart-topping pop in a way which is captivating and genuine, whilst retaining my own personality throughout. With over 8 years of experience as a one-to-one vocal coach, I employ a literal and research-based approach to my teaching, having completed level 1 & 2 courses in Estill Voice Training, and subsequently spent hundreds of hours applying it in practice both myself, and coaching at levels ranging from beginner to professional performer. I have an advanced knowledge of the biological structures of the larynx, and how best to manipulate these in order to create a versatility and control of sound, whilst always maintaining safe and healthy vocal practice. This puts me in a very advantageous position to teach singers with a range of vocal ability and in a huge variety of styles and genres. I also have a great track record of helping people overcome any vocal difficulties or challenges they may present with; everyone from teachers losing their voice in the classroom, to people in recovery from surgery and illness.
My passion for singing and performance is huge and in many ways infectious. Having lessons with me, you will find yourself in a relaxed environment where mistakes are encouraged, and where I am guaranteed to make even stranger noises than the ones I ask you to produce! Rest assured though that if you're a singer, your voice is in safe hands with a teacher who understands what it’s like to stand on a stage and deliver top-quality vocal performance. I can help to maximise your potential as a vocalist, whilst maintaining safe vocal practice and planting the technical seeds required for vocal longevity.
A very skilled and experienced pianist and accompanist, I can also provide you with recordings to sing along with between lessons!
