I am a fun loving musician with a passion for singing and teaching it to the younger generation. I have a Bachelor of Music majoring in Jazz vocal performance from the New Zealand School of Music. I also have experience in Classical singing and Music Theatre; as well as song writing.

Growing up in Hawkes Bay, I was involved in various choirs at high school and took courses at the National Youth Drama School; including songwriting, dance, acting voice and musical theatre. My first major role at the age of 15 was Gretl Von Trapp in the school musical of ‘The Sound of Music’. I have also played the role of Little Cossette in Les Miserables.

I have also done singing exams with Trinity College and gained distinction in grade 4 and 5 and merit in grade 6.

Currently I am in a Vocal and Bass duo with a bass player in the Wellington Region. We play acoustic arrangements of beloved jazz standards as well as modern tunes. Alongside that; I have recently joined the Wellington City Chorus.

No matter what age you are, I can help you become a confident singer, teach you how to sing the right notes without loosing your breath and how to stand correctly!

I also have played Piano and Guitar throughout the years.

Teaching Info

In my singing lessons; my aim is to create an environment which is encouraging, supportive as well as informative. In this environment; students are given the freedom to express their own musicality

Each lesson is suited to the individual and what works for them specifically in order for them to grow as a singer.

As well as singing; I also incorporate music theory into lessons.

I am also able to teach basic guitar and piano; as well as one on one NCEA music tutoring.

I am happy to teach any age and stage as long as the student is open and willing to work hard in and out of lessons.
