Fiona Dobie was a prizewinner at both the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and the Royal College
of Music in London. Further awards included being a finalist in the Kathleen Ferrier competition and the French Song prize at the s'Hertogenbosch International Singing Competition in The Netherlands.
She enjoyed a wide-ranging solo career, performing with conductors including Sir Roger Norrington and Sir Simon Rattle and leading accompanists including Malcolm Martineau.
She made many radio and television broadcasts in Britain and abroad and, amongst other work, has sung over 30 principal roles, including Glyndebourne on Tour, Opera North, London's West End and The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
Over 30 years ago, alongside being a singer, passing on what she was learning became a emerging passion. More recently Fiona taught Choral Scholars at Trinity College, Cambridge for four years. She continues to teach annually at Oxenfoord International Summer Singing School. Her masterclass work includes at Trinity College Cambridge and on the Oxford Lieder Festival Mastercourse and she has given singing workshops at Trinity Laban and the RCM.
She is an associate teacher of New York based international vocal pedagogue, David Jones.
In recent years she has also become an EFT and HeartSpeak practitioner.It is very exciting to witness singers and instrumentalists being emotionally and physically liberated by a few sessions of energy protocol work, which then impacts hugely beneficially on their sound and performance.
