Through individually tailored lessons, I aim to help you unlock your natural sound, to develop a healthy, sustainable singing technique, to diminish your vocal inhibitions and to gain confidence. I am committed to supporting high quality music making, learning and development.
Each lesson will incorporate a mix of breathing and simple vocal exercises to increase the range and flexibility of your voice as well as improve vocal stamina. We will then apply this technical work to repertoire of your choice.
My specialisation is classical technique as I am a classically trained freelance operatic tenor. I am also happy to teach individuals who are looking to improve their ability in singing music theatre, jazz and pop repertoire.
I can help prepare secondary students for their VCE singing exams, AMEB singing exams, and Trinity College London (in Australia) singing exams. I can also help university level students prepare for concerts, exams and eisteddfods, provide advice on audition preparation and audition repertoire choices, as well as provide guidance on role preparation.
I also specialise in the pronunciation of Italian, German and French repertoire and am proficient in the use of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA).
Lesson durations that I offer are: 30 minutes, 45 minutes or 60 minutes.
Lessons are provided on a one to one basis. For steady progress and maximum retention of content, a lesson once a week is recommended.
