Do you enjoy singing? Maybe that’s around the house, on your drive to work, in a local choir, or in a musical society. Many of us sing for enjoyment – but have never been taught how to sing.

Learning how to sing isn’t just for those who want to make a career out of it. It’s a chance to continue your personal development and spend time exploring your voice – both literally and metaphorically.

So many students have come to me saying “I’ve been singing for years but I don’t really know what I’m doing”. This is a chance for you to take that next step. In this short course I’ll introduce you to concepts and techniques that will give you more enjoyment in singing and help you to build the voice you’ve dreamed of.

If you’re ready to learn more and want to do so in a low pressure, cost-effective environment, this 8-week  singing course is for you.

It will teach you the fundamentals of singing technique, improve your singing within 8 weeks, and set you up with a solid foundation if you want to continue training your singing voice.

I’ll equip you with super transferrable, implementable information. Each week you’ll get a handout summarising what you learnt in the lesson, and how you can apply that at home.

The last 4 weeks will provide singers the opportunity to practise performing a song and apply the techniques they’ve learned.  This will provide singers with the chance to work with me individually, ask specific questions about things you’re having difficulty with and get feedback on what will have the biggest impact on your singing.

This short course is an introduction to vocal technique and performance for adults. So it's perfect if you match one or more of the following:

It's important to me that singers are given the best opportunity to succeed and enjoy their singing, so if you're not sure if this is the right course for you give me a call on 0401 909 082 and we can chat.
