TEACHING

I am currently offering online lessons  (ZOOM, FaceTime, Skype) for voice and musicianship.

My students have worked in professional productions (Opera Australia's Werther, La Boheme, Wozzeck, and School of Rock) and others have gone on to study at Australia's leading music institutions. (Sydney Conservatorium, NIDA, Griffith University).

My lessons focus on building a solid technical foundation.

I can help with:
-Preparing students for examinations.
-Classical, Music Theatre, and Contemporary styles. 
-Working with adolescent voices.
-Singer/Songwriters looking to improve their vocals.
