Kristiana believes there is no ‘one fits all’ vocal technique. Following an initial student consultation, where she will ask many questions and perform a comprehensive vocal diagnosis, she designs and personalises her lessons to suit each student. Kristiana uses elements from the following techniques: The CVT (Complete Vocal Technique), SLS (Speech Level Singing), Bel Canto, Estill, Alexander Technique and others. Kristiana specialises in ‘CCM’ (Contemporary Commercial Music) styles.
In addition to her private vocal coaching/singing teaching practice, Kristiana is also a choir leader at the "Rock Choir". Kristiana is a former singing teacher at the “AllStar Choir” where she taught young voices. She has also worked individually with vocal students of all ages at the “Instrumentally” Music Studios in Ascot. A trained classical pianist, Kristiana educates her students in music theory. In addition to teaching, Kristiana also writes her own music and lyrics. She has released some of her music on Spotify, Apple Music and a music video on Youtube platform. Kristiana is currently working on her original pieces which will soon be available to public on social media platforms. Outside her professional life, Kristiana is a mum to a 6-year-old boy.
Kristiana Milune is a professional vocal coach offering private contemporary singing lessons in Guildford, Surrey. She teaches students of all levels and ages from beginners to advanced performers. Professionalism, consistency and versatility are the key elements of delivering Kristiana’s singing lessons/vocal coaching and she believes in teaching a healthy vocal technique in an enthusiastic and encouraging environment.
Her aim is:
To make each student aware of using their voice in a healthy manner
To help each student understand how their voice works in order to achieve the best results.
To unleash every student’s potential
Kristiana studied at The Academy of Contemporary Music, Guildford. She completed the BMus (Hons) in Professional Music Performance (specialising in vocals) and graduated with First Class Honours. Her passion for singing and interest in different vocal techniques led Kristiana to complete a research study investigating the five most common vocal issues and furthermore offering possible solutions. As a result, Kristiana published a booklet - “Maintaining a Healthy Singing Voice and Addressing Common Vocal Issues” - to support amateur and working singers’ voices.
“Singing may require effort but should always feel comfortable”, says Kristiana.
"I strive to discover and develop musical talent of every vocal student I work with!"
