---
My goal is to help you to become better friends with your voice (and perhaps by association, better friends with yourself).

There are many approaches that can help us get there, and I tailor my approach to each individual’s needs, desires, and abilities. With many people, we start with science-based technique - learning how the different parts of your vocal instrument work, and how to control them independently to get the specific sound you’re looking for, in a safe & healthy way.

As we work on technique, applying it to the songs you love singing, we can also discuss artistry - the options that are available to you, using different techniques, to make unique aesthetic choices and craft the song into your own personal interpretation.

Performance technique & stagecraft is another skill to learn. We can talk about how to be on stage, how to connect to an audience, mic technique, preparing for recording sessions, and more.

And weaving through it all, your mindset and inner world informs your experience of singing. The way we think and feel is the way we move and sing. Your beliefs affect your body and your voice, no doubt about it - and working on each of them supports the other. If you’re interested, we can delve into this side of things - your mindset, beliefs, and what to expect during the creative process, so that you feel empowered and well-equipped to deal with the inevitable ups and downs.

Of course, there is so much more we can discuss - songwriting, music business & industry, networking, working with other musicians, music theory and history, listening & analysis - the possibilities are endless when we get curious, and I am happy to lead you and/or let you lead the direction of your sessions, as we explore the world of music & your voice together.

My work is trauma-informed and I maintain regular professional development in vocal technique & anatomy, physical alignment & health, psychology & neurology, and coaching & mindset.

Background

Who do I work with?

I love working with people of all ages, all levels of experience, and in all styles of music.
If you think your situation is unique, feel free to get in touch for a chat to see if I can help with your specific needs and desires. I welcome anyone from any background and with any story.
That being said, these are the three types of folks who I end up working with most often:

Adult Beginners
Maybe you used to sing when you were younger. Maybe someone told you you couldn’t sing, so you stopped using your voice for many years. Maybe you’ve never sung in front of anyone before in your life, but something in your heart tells you that singing will bring you joy. Maybe you just want to be able to do karaoke with your friends, or jam around the fire with your housemates. I love helping adults rediscover their voice and a love of music. Do you think you might be tone deaf? It’s statistically unlikely. Would you expect someone who’s never had a violin lesson to be able to play in tune? Singing is a physical skill like any other, and all you need is the right guidance to learn how to control & strengthen your vocal muscles, and time spent singing & listening to music to help attune your aural brain.

Professional Performers
I’m passionate about our local music community. I love working with my colleagues in this exciting and challenging industry to help them keep their voice healthy and safe while performing and recording. Often, musically talented folks get by with the vocal sounds we’re naturally good at, but if you’d love to broaden the palette of colours you have to paint with, and there’s some tonal qualities you’ve just never been confident with, let’s have a chat and let’s see if I can help you access those sounds with more ease.

Additionally, if you’ve been experiencing vocal fatigue or health issues while gigging or recording, or you’re tired of feeling puffed out on stage and singing just feels like hard work, I can help you with these issues too.

These things also apply to speech - actors, teachers, and anyone else who used their voice a lot in their work are also most welcome to get in touch.

Talented T(w)eens
If your child is around the age of 11 and up, and they love music, I love that you want to encourage their passion. Whether or not music becomes a career choice, it’s a valuable skill and a wonderful outlet for the creative brain and emotional self expression. If they are already singing along and have some favourite artists, I’ll be excited to help them nurture their voice, keep it safe and healthy, discover new music, and grow their confidence both onstage and off. Please note I do not usually work with folks under the age of 11, but I’m happy to see your younger singers for a trial session to see if it might be a match, or I’m happy to recommend my colleagues who are more specialised in working with children.
