Felicity Ayles

Education/Training, Individual Artist, Musician, Youth Theatre

Felicity started singing at the age of 14. Training under the internationally acclaimed Sophia Grech, she achieved her Grade 8 ABRSM singing exam, and will soon be commencing her Diploma in Vocal Teaching. She is a member of the Institute for Learning, and in 2013 was awarded her Diploma to Teach in Lifelong Learning Sector and her Qualified Teaching Learning Skills status. Currently she teaches in a range of part time theatre and primary schools.

Felicity has a wealth of performing experience, having appeared in a number of musicals as a member of Weymouth Operatic Society, including one of only three UK amateur productions of David Da Silva’s Fame Forever, which has recently been commissioned for the West End. Whilst at school, Felicity was lucky enough to perform in the first ever school’s edition of Les Misérables. She was one of the original members of Vocalis Youth Choir, and principal soprano of a small choir called Il Cantante. It was in the latter that she arranged a number of charity concerts which allowed her to raise money whilst indulging in her passion of singing. Following Il Cantante, she was a member of vocal harmony groups Fragments Vocalise and Come Together. With these groups she was fortunate enough to perform at many weddings and community events, and, throughout her career she has performed at various theatres all over Dorset and London.

Felicity loves teaching singing, helping young people to find a new self-confidence, and talent they may not even know they have! She loves inspiring her students, watching them perform and seeing their confidence bounce from the stage to their everyday lives.
