She has worked with a wide demographic of professional singers, including those with West End and professional operatic backgrounds.

Additionally, she has professional speech and language therapeutic experience, sectors in which she is active in Wiltshire, providing support and advice for a local hospital’s Speech & Language department. Understanding vocal anatomy and physiologically safe singing techniques is an underpinning factor in her musical and dramatic teaching history.
Lorraine has toured internationally, including Australasian performances. In 2006, she was engaged by Perth Oratorio Choir (POC) and Perth Concert Band as soprano soloist. Following the success of this initial engagement, Lorraine was re-engaged by POC as soloist for a performance of Handel’s The Messiah, with a similar invitation being issued in 2009. Lorraine has also performed professionally in Belgium, France, Germany and the United Kingdom.
Lorraine qualified as an Estill Master Trainer in May 2020 and teaches online, enabling global access to coaching. With the West End and Broadway now looking to open up again this year, she is welcoming enquiries from professional performers in this sector and also undergraduates looking to embark on a professional career in performing arts.
