As a child Lisa was given Classical singing tuition, providing a firm foundation to develop a wide range of styles throughout her career. Lisa enjoys singing many genres, with a special fondness for Musical Theatre, Pop and Jazz.
She began singing professionally during her late teens and has performed as a soloist, with bands, duos and trios, at weddings, corporate events, parties and in casinos, theatres, social clubs and hotels. She often spent summer seasons entertaining audiences at Butlins, Haven, Pontins and other holiday destinations all over the UK.

She teaches singing in various Primary and Secondary schools around the West Midlands, delivering one to one tuition and working with choirs/ensembles. She has also worked with adult choirs over the years, including a recent adult Gospel choir. Lisa teaches children and adults privately with students often doing their exams in pop and Musical Theatre, many of them achieving high passes with distinctions in grades 1 to 8.
