My teaching methodology is a combination of holistic singing technique and Traditional Italian bel canto methodology - singing in your self on your breath, letting the breath do everything. Each lesson starts with technical exercises geared towards the individual needs of each student, and an understanding of how the instrument of their body works, the movement of the diaphragm, and the release of tension in the body for the breath to move with ease. We then apply this technique to songs, whether they be classical, musical theatre or R and B. The students really starts to understand about the demands of their particular instrument and their own voice - its a wonderful journey of understanding and self discovery.
I have been teaching singing, piano and music education for over twenty years. Methodology is combination of holistic singing technique and Italian bel canto. Teach all styles. Focus on the unique voice of each perform, solo and ensemble with emphasis on aural skills. I have a BMus in Voice from the Victorian College of the Arts. Vocal Staff at The School of Music ANU. Students accepted study voice Sydney University, ANU, successful singing roles in productions. Performed for Embassies, in masterclass. I look at how the body, mind, soul and spirit are connected and find the music with in each person, and how that unique voice connects with music they are about to sing. My tapestry of skills as a music educator demonstrates my unique product, from teaching singing to elite classical singers at The Canberra School of Music ANU, transforming a choir into an entire vocal program for the retired at Tuggeranong Arts Centre, galvanizing the voices of disadvantaged British Jamaican school students in London and teaching at Melbourne’s established private schools. Students have outstanding results in AMEB exams, been accepted into Universities of Sydney, Melbourne and the ANU to study voice and given lead roles in productions.
