Lara Elizabeth

  • BA Creative Arts - Performance
  • Graduate Diploma of Speech and Language Communication

Lara has been teaching singing for over 15 years. She is passionate about teaching and thrives on watching the development and progress of her students.

Lara participated in her first musical “Oliver” when she was 9, and from there it was love. She juggled school life with singing lessons, music nights, vocal groups, choirs and musicals.

Beyond school, Lara spent a year studying Musical Theatre at the Australian Institute of Music, followed by a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Performance) at the University of Wollongong. Here Lara studied classical technique and voice studies under speech pathologists and industry professionals, enabling her to expand her skills and capabilities. During these years of training, she worked with and met numerous actors, singers, teachers, directors, coaches, and musicians who helped create the performer and teacher she is today.

Lara has worked as a singer for weddings, art spaces and galleries, acoustic duos and trios, corporate events, private functions, live music venues, backing vocals, DJs, and as a session singer for a variety of advertising campaigns.

To complement her performance experience and undergraduate studies, Lara has since completed a Graduate Diploma in Speech and Language Communication, and undertaken post-grad education in Speech Pathology. This additional education has contributed to a comprehensive and well-rounded approach to both singing technique and vocal health, ensuring the correct foundations are lain for a happy and healthy voice, long term.

As every person has different objectives, voices, and abilities, each student is catered to individually.

Lara incorporates her own professional performance experience into her lessons where applicable, to help nurture song interpretation, understand performance expectations, and build a confident and individual performance style.

Lara believes in the healing power of singing and connection to breath, incorporating breath work into her teaching.

Lara believes learning to sing isn’t just about singing, but about finding YOUR natural voice, and bringing it out confidently, so this confidence can spill over into real life.
