With a strong background in music theatre, Mr Winsor has always loved his career in the performing arts but stepped away from the spotlight a few years ago to start his family.

His motivation to begin tutoring was to help young people like himself who may be just starting out and can see a career in the arts.

“I wanted to give back and maybe help someone who was just like me when I started out and doesn’t know where to start,” he said. 

So far, Mr Winsor has five students but is looking to take on up to 20 to help them reach their fullest musical potential.

He says working with younger people he knows firsthand how coaching has improved their overall wellbeing, especially teenagers struggling with their confidence. 

“When you’re a kid, it is certainly difficult, and pursuing a career in the arts is challenging,” he said.

“Having that career though can benefit them from just having the experience to express themselves to finding something that makes them, them.

“It can be very emotional and helpful because it gives them an outlet.”
