I've seen quite a number of different vocal and singing teachers and none compare to Alisha. Her approach to singing is holistic. She showed me how to embrace my own unique sound and used techniques that I've never seen anyone teach before - and wow - do they work!!
Not only did my voice and breathing improve, but I fell in love with singing again thanks to Alisha's approach. Plus, she's so much fun and her classes are a joy to attend. If you are looking for a standout singing teacher - you've found one right here!
One of my life's most important and perfect decisions i made is to get trained at House of Voice. Its only been an year but Alisha improved my singing technique and range to an unimaginable level from where i was in the beginning. She teaches new concepts in every lesson about vocal science and ways to improve range. So, i confidently anticipate for fun-filled session and always exceeded the expected excitement level. Alisha, apart from being a great teacher also guides in making singing career which for me is a dream. She organizes concerts at the end of each semester which are giving me experience and opportunities to test myself. I feel blessed to be one of her students.
Alisha,s ability to coach is both enjoyable, and extremely useful.
Alisha has a wonderful ability to explain complex breathing techniques, along with different muscle use, in an easy to understand way. It didn't take long for me to see a massive improvement in my abilities as a singer.
Alisha is willing to work with, and listen to her students, to help get them where they want to go.
I have been very impressed with Alisha,s ability as a vocal coach.
Alisha is such a fabulous teacher! I came to her at a time when I was feeling very unconfident and insecure about my voice. Going through massive life change at the time, I also needed someone who would ‘get’ me.. And did she ever! Alisha’s techniques are so unique, fun, and really work. And if you don’t get it one way, she can explain it in another. Alisha taught me to stop questioning doing my singing exercises, and trust that they do work. Her visualisation techniques really work and she just 'gets' people and human psychology too! You could almost call her lessons amazing therapy! I can dare say that Alisha's unique techniques and beautiful personality make singing lessons something you truly looked forward to. Sometimes when you’re doing singing lessons, it’s hard to know if they are working, but with Alisha, I learnt to let go and trust myself and therefore, believe in myself and my own voice again. As cliche as it sounds, Alisha’s amazing techniques brought me and my singing back to life – because my belief grew in myself that I really could sing! I happened to stumble across House of Voice on YouTube, and after speaking to Alisha, she was the only one I wanted to see. My advice: give Alisha a call today and speak to her. My intuition was right and I must say, I have never enjoyed singing lessons as much until I met her!
I started with Alisha when I was sixteen, in the middle of year 11 VCE music and desperate for a reliable and dependable teacher. I needed a teacher to get me through VCE and teach me techniques that would help me through my singing career and other singing commitments for school. Alisha was everything I needed and more. She supported me endlessly through my VCE and continued to tell me we were a team which removed so much pressure I had put on myself. Vocally she taught me and coached me to become so much better, with her unique techniques that work every time. I am now able to sing at a multitude of volumes safely and with complex tones I didn’t even know I had. I also have so much more control and awareness of my voice now.
We ended up getting an A for my year 12 performance exam and there is no way I could’ve done it without her.
2 years after starting with Alisha we are still going strong working on songs from different genres and 'm learning new techniques every week.
My daughter has been attending singing lessons with Alisha for approximately 2 years. We have been extremely impressed with the knowledge and the technical skills that Alisha has taught her in this time. Every single lesson has been worth it.
Alisha displays great wisdom and understanding in her approach to students of all ages wanting to excel in this tricky field. But I think it is her ability to impart her knowledge, while making her students feel inspired, energised and then transcended that makes her such a gifted teacher.
Alisha has been an incredible vocal teacher, mentor and friend for the past five years. Her radiating enthusiasm and positivity is contagious, which makes coming to lessons an absolute pleasure and an exciting part of the week. Alisha’s teaching methods are unique, innovative and exciting. She is very in tune with her students, and forms beautiful relationships with every single one of them. Alisha’s teaching methods engage in focusing on the use of body instead of the mind. She encourages us to lose our inhibition when we sing because sometimes conscious thought can dominate the way we sing and can inhibit natural ability. Singing has become a true passion of mine; I am enthralled by its ability to immerse me into states of catharsis. I have had previous singing teachers in the past, Alisha has been the only teacher who has inspired me to perceive singing as a means of catharsis which I believe is truly special.
2 years of continued singing from an incredibly adaptable teacher have turned a church mouse voice into the thundering echo that continues to give me confidence in my musical ability as well as my day-to-day life. Recommending any other school would be a disservice to those you care about. Your goals will be reached, and new ones asserted in her mentor style teachings, be they professional aspirations or personal victories.
I have been training with Alisha for going on three years now, and she has been one of the best teachers I have ever had. I have a big singing voice and without Alisha's training I would have been tearing apart my vocal chords. With House of Voice, I can definitely hear and feel the improvements I have made and she has taught me how to control my volume and has helped to adapt my vocal range; from soul to musical theatre. It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made, and probably will ever make, as Alisha brings the best positive attitude to her teaching, which has really helped over the past couple of years. There is no one else I would rather have teach me in a weekly basis.
I have been singing with Alisha for 3 years and I'm always blessed to be her student! She is an extraordinary teacher and mentor. People around me are getting impressed by how much my voice has changed these years. Alisha shows a great passion and enthusiasm for her students. Her singing class is very compact and step-by-step. she encourages to let go of the mind and focus on how the body feels when you are singing. She introduces lots of visualisation skills, which makes the class so much fun! I learn a lot of skills such as breathing, supporting muscles, and always having your soft palate raised. She also organized concerts every semester and songwriting class for the one who wants to be a singer-songwriter. Alisha is a good mentor who always supports you, and gives you constructive advice. I'm looking forward to seeing her every week.
Alisha is the best singing teacher I have ever had. She supports me in reaching personal singing goals and understand where I need to be pushed as a singer and performer. Alisha understands the voice so technically and is able to explain this through practical vocal excersises. I love my weekly singing lesson at House of Voice- I have found my creative home!
“I have been coached by Alisha for the past few years. In that time she has given me a great self awareness and an implicit understanding of my own voice. She not only helped me improve my technique, but she has showed me how to recognise the process involved in being aware of how my voice works and how I can achieve the goals I set. She has gotten to know me and my instrument personally, and can always see what I need to work on and give me ongoing strategies to develop my singing. She is amazing!”
“I’ve always loved to sing and needless to say over my years I’ve been to countless music schools and private teachers, however I have achieved more with Alisha within just a year than I have with any of my other singing teachers or coaches combined! She has taught me techniques and replaced my bad habits with strategies which allow me to futher progress with my voice and gain confidence. I have TMJ and my jaw continously got in the way of my singing, Alisha worked with me and I can now say with confidence has removed the problem and discomfort, I know sound like a completly different person! She works with her students on a close level and has mentored me with her great communication skills and the use of her knowledge and passion about music which has allow me to excell to a point I never even dreamed of ”
“Stevie-Lou has been singing with Alisha for 3 years and has been singing since the age of 5. Stevie’s-lou’s confidence in her own voice has grown significantly along with the techniques that Alisha has shown her. Stevie has performed on numerous occasions and excelled in singing Eisteddfods and excellent marks in her AMEB singing exams, but the most impressive point for us as parents is Stevie loves and can’t wait to get to her lesson every week” – testimonial on behalf of Stevie Lou Answerth
“I have learned more in my four months of lessons with Alisha than I learnt in five years of singing lessons at secondary school. I first came to her intending simply to gain an AMEB certificate, but I came out with so much more than that. In my first lesson with Alisha it became apparent that I wasn’t singing with correct technique, so she was presented with the huge challenge of stripping me of years of bad habits, replacing them with the right ones, and preparing me to fulfil the exam requirements in an intense three month period. She did an amazing job, using her knowledge of the inner workings of the relevant body parts to pin-point what it was I was doing, and then trying out different techniques such as singing certain sounds, thinking in analogies, physically holding a body part still (e.g. neck, jaw) or doing hand movements that would aid me in correcting it. I learned a lot of important basics such as breathing, posture, placement of the sound and always having your soft palate raised. With her help I managed to pass my Seventh Grade: Singing for Leisure exam with Honours (A). I also won the Superstar Singing Competition; a feat I would’nt have had the skill or confidence to achieve without these lessons. I’ve gained so much!”
“My Daughter has been working with Alisha for years. Her confidence and ability have improved vastly since we started. She now writes and performs her own music and is going from strength to strength. Alisha has supported and mentored her through some challenging times and her deep understanding and insight into the emotions and workings of teenage girls has enabled their relationship to grow and for my daughter to remain engaged and passionate about singing”
“My daughter has been singing with Alisha for about two years now, starting when she was six years old. Prior to lessons with Alisha, my daughter had learnt the violin and piano but each time she lost interest quickly and would not practice. Her singing lessons are completely different. She loves her singing lessons. She loves practicing and she has improved greatly, reflected in a great AMEB singing exam result and entry into a musical. Alisha has a brilliant skill in teaching and challenging my daughter, whilst having a lot of fun. My daughter learns a lot and laughs a lot when she is there. That balance is perfect for keeping my daughter engaged. I cannot thank Alisha enough for the support and interest she has shown in my daughter Thank you”

“Alisha’s training methods at the House of Voice are unique and second to none. I don’t think anyone else could have tapped into my voice as well as her and brought it out of me. Her techniques are not just for those wanting to learn to sing but also for those wanting to learn about themselves. What I have learnt from Alisha has helped me be more in touch with who i am and also helped me in sporting pursuits and the corporate boardroom”
“I have been going to Alisha for singing lessons for six months now and have found the experience very rewarding and enjoyable. Singing is something I have always loved to do but could never have imagined singing alone to a perfect stranger! But Alisha made me feel very much at ease from the get go. She has a great knowledge base and makes the learning fun!
“As a person always on the go and the typical “high achiever” I have found my learning experience with Alisha to be liberating on a whole body, mind and spirit level. Just being able to be myself regardless of what comes out of my mouth, voice wise, is very reassuring. Non judgmental Alisha helps me on my journey to be the best person/singer I can be, whilst having fun creating music and tapping into my greatest potential”
“Alisha is a soulful giver and a gifted teacher. She has a great skill for communicating exactly the right message at the perfect moment, as if she is aware of your progress at every stage. Alisha is not only a passionate and committed teacher, she truly believes in the power of music and vocal tuition. My self confidence and identity are so much stronger for meeting Alisha and engaging her vocal tuition and expertise. It is a healing and empowering journey”
