I’ve been teaching singing for more than 10 years and currently teach privately from my home studio in Whataupoko, Gisborne as both a vocal coach and a vocal technique instructor. 

I focus on teaching voice as an instrument.  We all have the same instrument (with minor physiological differences) and we can all learn to play our “voice” (provided our instruments are healthy) to an advanced/professional skill level.  When we know how to play our “whole” voice it becomes a spectacular instrument with a tone UNIQUE to each person. 

I specialize in vocal technique instruction, focusing a lot on the technical side of our instrument so that we can work through any barriers preventing us from singing well, ensuring vocal development to the highest possible level. 

I’ve developed a wholistic program designed to improve our “whole” voice and have found it to be very effective in reaching a good level of singing in a reasonable amount of time.  My program is designed to work with all voices and ability levels from children to adults.

As a voice teacher I draw from multiple disciplines, methods, and resources, both classical (bel canto) and contemporary, to create a flexible and individualized approach that helps my students achieve their singing goals.

I provide vocal coaching services for advanced singers focusing on specific goals, vocal upkeep or refresher sessions.  I’ve developed an “Absolute Beginner’s Singing Course” to help those who may be too shy to sing in front of anyone. I also offer comprehensive Vocal Assessments (contemporary vocals).

My vocal and musical experience includes singing from a young age, choir leader in high school, performances in plays, singing professionally, recording a music album & various musical projects, voice over work for radio commercials, backing vocals for other artists’ albums, lyrical content for artists’ songs, collaborating with other musicians, producing/composing music on digital audio workstations, audio engineering, songwriting and teaching voice.

I believe my greatest strength as a voice teacher is my ability to see the unique potential of each voice I work with and as such, I guide and encourage my students to achieve all they can with their voices.

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.  The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”  Thomas Edison

(If you have any medical issues with your voice e.g. hearing or physical problems, I recommend seeing a medical professional as I unfortunately can’t help with these).


If you’ve never been taught the basic foundations of singing or how your voice works, are a beginner or intermediate singer or an advanced/professional singer needing to learn advanced techniques like mixing/blending registers or belting/high pressure singing with healthy technique, if you can’t access your full voice/range or have vocal problems like singing off key, vocal breaks/cracks, no volume or power, can’t reach high notes, push, strain or become hoarse after singing, or if singing hurts, etc., then I highly recommend taking regular weekly lessons.


This is different for each person and depends on factors such as, where you are on your vocal journey, skill level, ability to learn and apply techniques, frequency of practice, etc., but generally most people see improvements within a few weeks.  Please see my blog on “How long does it take to learn to sing” here:


Yes.  Just like any instrument, consistent regular practice is necessary to see good improvement in a reasonable amount of time.  More practice = quicker improvement.

Teaching Info

I truly believe that everyone can learn to sing (assuming your voice is healthy).  Not only can you learn to sing, but you can learn to sing really REALLY well.  Singing is a skill that improves with practice, knowledge and correct technique.  The same basic techniques are employed, whether you want to sing around the campfire or be a professional stage diva!

Singing is freeing and there’s no better feeling than being able to sing your favourite song, freely, with no limitations, knowing your voice won’t let you down.  I want everyone to experience that feeling and I’d love to guide and encourage you on your singing journey.  Whether you’re a complete beginner or seasoned professional, vocal instruction can benefit your voice immensely.

I particularly want to encourage you, if you’ve experienced discouragement from others, to take lessons.  If you don’t know how to sing, I can teach you. 

I teach healthy vocal techniques that help balance and develop the voice to achieve a clear and even tone throughout the vocal range.  I ensure you have the necessary basic foundation to achieve a healthy strong singing technique.  Depending on your goals a typical lesson can consist of:

  • vocal scales and exercises
  • ear training exercises and listening techniques
  • rhythm and timing exercises
  • vocal pedagogy, including posture, breathing, articulation, diction, tone, resonance, vocal dynamics and more
  • practical singing skills and implementation of techniques learned
  • recording the voice and microphone techniques
  • building self confidence and resilience
  • working on performances and songs 
  • implementing stylistic aspects and singing techniques
  • working towards a specific goal e.g. an audition 
  • perfecting advanced techniques like “belting”
  • upkeep of your voice and vocal health
  • analysing and working through vocal problems.


I offer all new clients an opportunity to meet me, find out a bit more about what I offer and discuss your singing goals in more detail (no singing is required at this session).  This is usually a 30 minute session.

Letitia Lindeque Vocal Coach, not only is she a beautiful person, she also has a very beautiful soul. Tayne has been with Letitia just over a year and she has done so much for him. Her style of coaching is very professional, her approach to the person learning is very patient, kind and caring. She can also cater for both genders, which is marvellous. She is honest and we just love her. Tayne will not miss a day of coaching with Letitia, and has not. So take mine and Tayne’s word, she is the most experienced vocal coach I have come across, she knows her work and if you persevere with her way of teaching, you will never look back. Thank you Letitia, we appreciate all that you have done, hope you can put up with us for many more years.


Singing is a way to express myself and to have fun. Letitia taught me how to sing freely, she encouraged me not to be shy but to trust myself and my voice. To me it was really important to find the right techniques so that I won't damage my voice and Letitia definitely taught me that. She is an amazing teacher! She always believed that I could do it and showed me how I should practice to achieve my goals. She made singing so much more fun!


Letitia is an amazing teacher! Her techniques are very unique yet effective. She makes sure you understand how your voice works and how to get the best out of it. Also, she keeps up to date with today’s songs! I have really enjoyed all my lessons with her.


Letitia is a methodical, diligent and professional person. She is able to provide structured guidance and motivate others to achieve their goals. She has been a huge support and inspiration for me and I am very pleased to recommend her.


Thank you very much, you are an amazing teacher. I never would have believed that I would be able to get to even half my singing ability that I am at today! I feel a lot more confident with my music and you gave me skills that I'll treasure for life.
