Vanessa's Singing Studio

  • BMus - Bachelor of Music (Honours Class I)

Hi there, my name is Vanessa Strydom and I am an enthusiastic musician, educator and conductor who is avid about sharing my passion for music with my students and helping them reach their musical goals. I obtained a Bachelor degree in Music Performance (Opera Performance) at The University at Queensland before undertaking a PhD in musicology. As well as being a regular performer around Brisbane, I have also been a private singing teacher for over 8 years and am the primary vocal tutor for two well-known Catholic high schools in Brisbane.

I am a passionate music educator and have been teaching privately for over 8 years, providing vocal tutelage to students of all ages and skill levels. I am confident teaching all genres of singing from opera and musical theatre to jazz, rock and pop and am trained in the Kodaly musical approach. My extensive knowledge of music theory and vocal health allows me to teach my students not only how to accurately perform a piece of music but also to effectively express themselves and their character through song. I have extensive knowledge of the International Phonetics Alphabet (IPA) and thus am able to teach students to sing in a variety of different languages including German, French and Italian.

As a vocalist, I am able to give vocal lessons to people of all ages - whether you are interested in completing exams, performing in eisteddfods, preparing for auditions or just love singing. I can also help you professionally record your singing and share it with your friends and loved ones.

I also offer music theory and aural musicianship tutoring and lessons. I have a comprehensive understanding of music theory and have had over four years of professional aural training.

I have an in depth understanding of the structures and principals of music history, as I continue to study them it at a tertiary level. I can easily assist in assignments and exams and am happy to proofread any material.

Please do not hesitate to contacts me at any time:
