I am a classically trained singer, but I teach all styles. I am a firm believer that, in whatever style you sing in, your goal must be to make a beautiful sound that is effortless. Underpinning that goal must be fabulous technique and the ability to adapt one's voice without strain to any style required, using appropriate stylistic techniques.
I currently sing with Opera Australia and have been teaching all styles for over 15 years. I have had a student in the final 8 on The Voice, a student who has performed 5 principal roles with Opera Australia as well as Encore nominations for my HSC students in both music 1 and Music 2. I also incorporate music theory knowledge and aural skills into my lessons and am a language vocal coach in Italian, German and French...yes there is so much incredible repertoire out there that is not in English!! You can, for example, develop so much in the way of technique through singing well in Italian...and there is so much joy to experience by studying the music!
