As a youngster Paula Odell trained classically with Betty Middleton and gained her grade 8 ABRSM at the age of 16. After 15 years of working as a professional singer Paula went back to school and studied to gain her degree in Education at Hull University.
Paula found that she could teach a classical technique to her students but still allow students to maintain their own original sound and let them experiment with pop techniques which she had learnt whilst working in the industry.
Paula now enjoys teaching classical and pop singing but has a special love for the musical theatre style in which she currently specialises. In fact a large number of her early students have gone on to become professional singers in their own right and also successful vocal coaches themselves.
