Jo Thompson

"When I first met Jo fourteen years ago, I was relieved to have finally found a teacher who could relate vocal exercises and techniques to actually singing a modern pop song, plus making the process interesting and fun. We have since worked together in the studio, on film and in the classroom with great success and become life-long friends."


Jo Thompson is one of the UK’s leading singing and voice coaches with over 25 years’ experience in the business. After taking a music degree she worked as a professional singer for many years before turning to full-time teaching. Jo has worked extensively in TV, film and the music industry. Her credits as a singing coach include the hit film Little Voice and the TV series Popstars the Rivals. She has made her name working with artists such as James Morrison, Craig David, John Newman, Paloma Faith, Elly Jackson (La Roux), Ellie Goulding and The Overtones.

"Jo makes everything so much easier. She has been a huge help to me, particularly with vocal endurance whilst on the road. I couldn’t imagine not checking in with her pre-tour. Any anxieties - she always has the answer!"

James Bay

"Jo has an amazing energy and her expertise is incredible. I recommend her to every vocalist I work with."

Fraser T Smith

"Jo has been a total saving grace for me. She helped me to retrain my voice after suffering vocal pain sustained by an injury two years ago. I went to multiple doctors before I found a solution working with Jo. She has transformed my vocal patterns, and I would recommend her to any singer, particularly those who have had vocal problems."
