Sam Keeler


Sam started his training with a music and choral scholarship to the London Oratory School, where he was featured on the motion picture soundtracks for The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter franchises. He continued his education at the University of Manchester, where he received a First-class Honours studying his Music BA.

While at Manchester, Sam received the Proctor-Gregg Performance Prize and was cast as a leading role in several opera and musical theatre productions, including The Mikado, Betty Blue Eyes, and Castor et Pollux. He was also active in choral music as both a singer and conductor, gaining choral scholarships to Southwark and Salford Cathedrals, and conducting the Stile Moderno and St. Chrysostom’s Evensong Choirs.

After university, Sam became the Artistic Director of ‘Finishing the Hat Productions’, a fringe theatre company which debuted with a sell-out run of Sondheim’s Assassins at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe. He also began teaching at the prestigious Whitgift School in Croydon, where he ran several choirs and musical theatre productions, and regularly sung as a Lay Clerk at Croydon Minster.

As a teacher, Sam has worked extensively with all ages and abilities, and has taught across a range of classical and popular genres. He has a strong academic and practical background in technique, interpretation and performance practice, and has studied pedagogy extensively in his approach to teaching. During his lessons the student is always the centre of the learning experience, creating a personalised and comfortable environment in which to inquire, experiment and flourish musically.
