Teaching Info

My teaching style Is upbeat, direct and precise. I’m primarily focused towards establishing excellent use of the singing tools, utilising voice placement, vowel precision, vocal dexterity and using voice registers to make informed singing choices. I teach a mixture of classical, music theatre, jazz, blues and modern rock and pop material to all ages and give you clear guideline to the techniques used in each. I love to teach and also mentor many professional singer from around the world. I specialise in audition preparation for professional music theatre and classical productions and courses. My natural enthusiasm and practical advice will allow you to grow both musically and artistically by building your confidence with regular performance opportunities. I teach the ABRSM program readying students for examinations in singing and music theory, And I also enter students into singing competitions from local to International standard. I run a children theatre program, teach high school singing and tertiary students; and if you want to sing well for recreation I also teach program’s for you as well.
