Hi my name is Paule. I have been working as a vocal coach and as a performing singer for over twenty years. During that time I have performed in New Zealand, Australia, and America. Not every singer is blessed at birth with Herculean sized vocal chords that make singing a breeze. I know I certainly wasn’t! In fact my voice was so weak when I started singing even the simplest songs were a real struggle. I became determined to research the globe in search of proven techniques and exercises to reduce the time it takes to develop real power, range and improve vocal tone.
Starting out as a singer in my teens, I made plenty of mistakes along the way and tried out dozens of voice coaches and programmes that failed to provide the results I was looking for. I learnt by trial error and figured out how the voice works, and then studied vocal anatomy and discovered which exercises work best with certain voices to grow the vocal chords. As a result of my quest for knowledge in all things to grow the voice. I am proud to say I have created a vocal exercise programme that delivers real results with my clients, students and I help them dramatically reduce the time it takes to overcome vocal obstacles and develop their true performer voice.
Currently I coach clients face to face and via Skype in NZ, Australia,Italy, USA.

Current Client Testimonial: October 2015
My name is Nefertiti Teare I’m 20 years old and currently studying music at Mainz. I have always struggled with singing efficiently and was concerned that if i continued singing with poor technique that i may cause myself permanent damage in the future. I also lacked confidence in my ability to sing i really wanted to improve my higher and lower register, power, and improve pitching and vibrato. during show rehearsals and performances i would always find my throat straining and knew that this problem needed to be solved at once. my first lesson with Paule one on 27th July within 30 minutes WOW what a difference. my confidence had already been lifted, i had hope again ! and the unhealthy tension in my larynx had already been lifted.
3 months into my sessions with Paule and i am confident to say that when I’m singing in rehearsal or shows that i have a sense of security knowing that I’m singing with correct technique. I easily apply what i have learnt in the sessions to the work i do at university. Paule uses great analogies to help recognise the muscle groups that need to be engaged when wanting to hit the high notes or belt. My breath management has become so much efficient. and i am proud to say that that i have achieved my vocal goal for the year: hitting a C6!!!! its great having a tutor that genuinely cares for your vocal healthy and nurtures its development safely AND RAPIDLY. Paul has a refreshing personality and gives great tips to be able to condition your voice even when your sick to help reduce swelling. He has a great in depth knowledge on vocal anatomy and he explains in an easy understandable way so that you can gain even greater knowledge on how your voice works (which i found singing the hard stuff easier to do once i know the how , why and what going on in there!!)
Every week i look forward to another session with Paule my vocal coach. i love the new habits i am forming and how positive and confident i feel after each session. I recommend anyone who wants to improve there vocal tonality, register, and really develop there full vocal potential to try out Rapid Vocal Results. ITS WORTH IT!!
Hi my name is Paule. I provide expert vocal coaching via Skype or face to face (one on one), at my West Auckland studio. I’am known for my no “BS” teaching style.
Did you know that the average ordinary healthy voice is capable of producing a three octave connected voice? Isn’t that amazing? Many singers can learn to extend there vocal range even further!
Connected voice means that you are able to sing from your lowest note to your highest note with out any cracks or wobbles in the voice. Singing in a connected voice makes it much easier to add thickness and a fuller sound to your high notes. Learning how to develop the connected voice is the only safe way to develop real power and increase your vocal range.
You gain additional range and power making your singing easier and a whole lot more fun! Just by learning how to sing in a connected voice.
So essentially if you want to learn to sing higher or lower notes with more power (and extend your range and improve your vocal tone) the answer is to learn how to create the correct muscle co-ordinations to develop a fully connected voice.
If you struggle to sing high notes, or your voice breaks or cracks when you sing, it simply means that your not allowing the voice to operate naturally as it was designed to do. I can help you to identify the unhealthy vocal habits you’ve developed and more importantly teach you the correct muscle coordination’s so that your voice can operate freely and easily.
Learning to sing correctly, requires you to use the true singing muscles to produce your voice. Of course building the strength in these true singing muscles can be a frustrating process. I have developed a series of vocal strengthening exercises, that will help you reduce the time it takes to safely condition and strengthen the true singing muscles so they can operate on there own with improved efficiency.
It takes patience to strengthen up the underdeveloped micro muscles that are actually responsible for creating pitch, volume, and tone. In-experienced singers and experienced singers alike often make the mistake of engaging the big bulky false singing muscles to incorrectly support there singing.
The result is that the wrong muscles are been engaged to produce the singing voice and these false muscle groups actually produce unwanted excessive tension against the vocal chords and actually shut the voice down. This can lead to developing nodules and polyps and other vocal nasties!
Identifying your unhealthy vocal habits is the first step:
I provide the only Vocal Diagnostic service in New Zealand for singers, see my website to learn more. http://www.rapidvocalresults.com/#!vocal-diagnostic-session/c10vv
Every singer is different. No two sets of the vocal chords are the same. I teach beginners, intermediate and advanced through to professionals (recording artists). Every session is customised specifically to the needs of my client and their immediate vocal goals.
I can help you:
#Develop correct diaphragmatic breathing ( Singers breath support)
# Ear training for singers (develop your ear to make it easier to follow and construct world class melodies)!
#Gain real vocal confidence
#Reduce vocal strain
#Develop real power
#Increase your range (By developing a connected voice)
#Heal and recuperate a blown voice
#Scream and sing safely with out risk
#Build a voice you will be proud to call your own.
I can help you, fully develop all aspects of your performing voice suitable for both singers and professional public speakers.
I can save you days, weeks, months, years of vocal frustration, and dramatically reduce the time it takes for you to develop your true performer voice. The hard work, discipline and willing effort that part will come from you.

Sarah Spicer /Recording & Touring Artist / 2015 X-Factor Finalist I'm 43 yrs old and quite frankly I thought, that I had my voice all worked out by now! But after spending some quality time working with Paule and his rapid vocal results methods. I definitely noticed improvments in my tone and vocal strength etc. Learning how to use my voice more efficently has measurably improved the stamina of my singing voice. Paule helped me gain a deeper understanding of how the voice works in a holistic way. I have now learnt practical vocal techniques that help me to maintain my voice at its best. Paule helped me out recently while I was on tour. Due to my performance schedule. I had been singing daily for weeks in a row and was suffering from fatigue and lack of energy. The RVR techniques, really work and are easy to learn! I will continue to use them in the future both on the road and in the studio. Paule is very professional, flexible and reliable and I can't recommend him highly enough. The Skype calls work really well and allow me to practice from home or while I'm on the road. Many Thanks Paule. Sarah Sassy Spicer.
Kara James Gordon / Professional singer and guitar player Performance Credits Opened for Slash, Ozzy Osbourne, Joe Satriani, Elton John. Has performed with Glen Hughes (Deep Purple) Toured internationally through out New Zealand / Australia /Europe etc with Alabama 3 Toured New Zealand and Australia as part of the "fly my pretties" tour Paule from RVR has helped me immensely with my vocals. I have been a professional musician for years thought i was doing alright with my singing. But Paule showed me the real deal way to sing by using my diaphragm breathing and taught me facial and lung strengthening exercises that have helped take me to the next level of vocal performance. People who have come to my gigs for years have noticed improvements in my power tone and pitch and the improvements have happened since i started going to paule for coaching. This guy knows his stuff! PS the video below was recorded before i started taking singing lessons with Paule I will post a video soon to show you a difference that coaching has made to my voice.

Sharon P Omokoroa New Zealand I had been taking weekly singing lessons with Paule for about 3 months when I had a dream about singing. Not just that I was singing, but that my singing was a powerful tool to make a positive difference in my life. It was a confirmation for me that taking singing lessons with Paule was exactly what I needed to be doing. Many thanks to Paule and Rapid Vocal Results!

Jordan Willis-Love, 18 (Skype coaching) Singing has always been a passion of mine, but it wasn’t until 2 years ago that I really started to sing seriously and work on my voice. After having started busking and singing for small events, I worked out that I wanted to pursue music and so looked for a vocal coach to teach me correct technique, improve my range and strengthen my voice. Paule, offered all of this and more, and I finished my first session feeling excited about the rapid improvements that were to be made to my voice. I have now been having weekly 45 minute sessions with Paule for about 10 months and the results have been unbelievable. I have a newfound depth of knowledge about how my voice works and how to use it in the most efficient way, I can hit notes that 10 months ago I thought would be impossible and with more power I’d ever imagined and my confidence has sky-rocketed. Being a level 3 music high school student, I have had the privilege of having Paule’s support throughout all my assessments. His genuine care for his clients is obvious and to be able to come to him with all my songs and work on them with him to make sure I perform to the best of my ability has been the reason for my success this year. He never hesitates to offer extra sessions and always wants to keep up to date on how I’m doing with my assessments. Receiving a call from Paule before my performance offering advice on warming up, keeping the nerves in control and little things to focus on during the performance means a great deal and he goes above and beyond for the benefit of his clients. Paule’s coaching style is, as he says, no BS, and his constructive criticism and teaching helps me learn in a safe, comfortable environment. I can’t imagine where I would be without Paule and his Rapid Vocal Results singing system. During each session ive experienced vocal break throughs and improvements that have kept me excited and intrigued about my voice and singing. I would highly recommend any high school music students who are thinking of getting a vocal coach to go straight to Paule to experience Rapid Vocal Results!!!
Moya Bawden When I approached RVR for coaching i was working with a thready, uncertain voice and no confidence to hit and retain the desired notes. There was no power. RVR provided both great support and specific challenges which dealt with each issue. The volume, brightness and even my range have all been extended. I could not have imagined the difference possible when I started. I would recommend Paule and his RVR singing method unreservedly. The results speak for themselves. Kind regards Moya Bawden
Dr Fern Evitt, PhD (Management) After years of intense and unrelenting stress my voice was suffering, correspondingly, my confidence. I explored a number of voice coaches around the Auckland region. While they offered insights, I didn’t find them able to adjust well to my needs nor did they appear to appreciate my particular problems. Paule proved to be different - effective - right from the start. From the initial diagnostic session, I knew I had found a gifted voice coach. He immediately recognised a number of issues with my voice and poor speaking habits. As a female CEO, I wanted to have a pleasant, authoritative speaking voice necessary to command attention and lead. Despite my busy lifestyle and voice issues, he has quickly responded, adjusting and thoughtfully planning each session to optimise the value for me. Evident is his commitment to his clients quickly realising results and appreciating - utilising - the marvel that is the voice. Paule’s agility to adapt the lesson and personalise plans to address a concern or focus on a particular issue, is very much appreciated and an admirable talent. Thoroughly versed in the nuances of speaking and singing from the internal mechanics through to the nutrition advice and physical benefits, he exudes his passion for his clients’ realising results. I will - and have - recommend Paule to anyone thinking of improving their voice, wanting to speak with strength, with resonance, with confidence. While I have not been taking singing lessons per se, much of his instruction comes via good use and range of the voice: I can appreciate how his skills would be unmistakeably beneficial for anyone wishing to improve their singing voice. I can certainly attest to his patience, his focus on advancing his clients’ voice goals and his repertoire of teaching methods: all conveyed with care and good humour.

Fraser Coombes lead vocalist for NZ hard rock band Checaine. I began vocal training session with Paule with the goal of bridging a mid range gap in my vocal range. Although I had sung for a number of years and would consider myself an experienced performer in the genre of rock/metal I was at a stage where I was simply not making the connections and progress I wanted on my own. My original rock band Checaine were in the midst of recording our debut album when I felt the use of a professional vocal coach may just help me sound smoother and more connected with my voice and the listener. After an initial diagnostics session in which Paule gave his professional audit on the condition of my voice and potential, he created a taylor made vocal training programme. Although Paule encouraged me to identify the areas of my voice I'd like to work on I found his programme and content during lessons specifically targeted the areas I needed to work on without even realising myself. Paule has worldwide connections with some of the globes most renowned vocal coaches. His information is current and his ability to get results out of his students by using the latest tricks of the trade is second to none. It's worth me mentioning that Paule is the fourth vocal coach I have used. I wish I had saved my, time and money and gone straight to Paule. A key area of learning for myself was around vocal health. Paule taught me the importance of treating your voice like a highly sensitive instrument. I was intrigued to learn about foods that should be avoided as a vocalist, dietary habits and the power of water. If you are looking for that little bit of help to speed up your learning progress and are interested in any of the following I can confidently recommend Paule as the vocal coach to deliver the results you are striving for. Weekly practice routines, how to train the voice safely, vocal health, pre show warm ups, post show warm down, how to perform when you have a cold, healthy/safe voice distortion, the power of blurb exercises, blend and vowel pronunciation, vowel modification, range extension, performance techniques, marketing advice and much much more. Since having vocal training with Paule my band has gone on to play gigs with Devilskin, I Am Giant, Setting Fire To Stacey, Ekko Park and many more. Paule is a big believer in using analogies during his training sessions to ensure the student has a true understanding of the technique or pivotal learning moment in a lesson. If you are looking to improve your voice then look no further than Paule. If his sheer enthusiasm for singing and your progress don't motivate you on their own I'll eat my hat! Every time I take the stage now I do so with the confidence that I have the right tools and techniques to deliver a great performance. Thanks Paule! You Rock! If you need further proof the Paule delivers results you can hear me sing on Checaine's debut

Parabola West (Independent recording artist, singer song writer). Recipient of NZ on Air recording grant. I have been working with Paule for just under a year, mostly via Skype lessons, and I have found his method of teaching to be efficient and effective, providing immediate and lasting improvements to my singing and breathing techniques. Paule is able to identify and provide techniques to correct strain and resistance in my voice, as well as provide information and context around the mechanics of how it all works. His commitment to providing excellent value and measurable results was obvious from our first lesson, and I certainly recommend booking a lesson to see for yourself how much you can get out of an hour!
