Teaching

Zoe began her teaching journey when her singing teacher Janice Webb QSM asked if she would like to take over an evening teaching at her studio “because you are so eager in your vocal technique”. 

It all began with 5 students on a Friday afternoon in North Auckland, New Zealand. In just a few months Zoe started teaching at Birkenhead College in Auckland & developed the Musical Theatre programme for Neverland Studio’s whilst continuing her studies. 

Eager to learn more about different styles Zoe began working with renowned NZ soprano Gina Saunders on Bel Canto technique. As well as having online singing lessons with Dave Stroud & Dean Kaelin focusing on Speech Level singing technique.

Zoe left New Zealand to begin her Masters in Scotland, where she taught classes at the Young Academy of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Soon after arriving in London, & whilst teaching at Cherry Pie Music in Wimbledon, London for over a year  Zoe found it difficult to find new ways to approach her students vocal progress. Zoe wanted more tools & certainty to help her students voices so she began her Estill Master Teacher training with Anne-Marie Speed, The Voice Explained.

Whilst in London Zoe was a Musical Theatre Repertoire coach at  London Studio Center & singing teacher at Ursuline High School. Many of her students have been awarded Musical Theatre & Pop music positions at Universities & schools such as BRITS school & RADA. 

In 2017 Zoe suffered a vocal fold hemorrhage & polyp which turned her world inside out. After an operation & vocal therapy her voice is now back better than ever, but with a greater appreciation for how the voice works & a greater respect her her students progress. 

In 2019 Zoe gained her Certified Master Teacher in Estill Voice Training after finishing her studies with Dorte Hyldstrup & Charlotte Xeri, Voice Your Potential. 

After 3 years teaching Pop & Rock singing at Performing Arts Studio’s in Munich, Zoe currently teaches many students online, touring professionals & regularly at Downtown Music Insitut, Augsburg, Munich International School, Bavarian International School & her own home studio in Peißenberg. 

Zoe holds her Pedagogy Certification in Voice Teaching from the state of Bavaria.

Chloé Noël - Hobby Singer

“So my advice to you: let go of all your fears if you can and join her to discover your own diamond.“

Philosophy

I believe that Talent in the way that we think about it does not exist. No one is born with the innate talent for singing, much like no one is born with a talent for cooking. Of course there are genetics that can help us along, I am 5″2, so there is no way I was ever going to be a “talented” basketball player. However the most wonderful part about music is that in a lot of respects, we are all born equally. 

I aim to inspire every student with the knowledge that they can sing everything & anything that they want to & set their mind too. Their limitations are all in their own heads. 

I found it a struggle when I was younger at school. I was painfully shy when I was singing & I was slightly chubbier than the rest of the kids, so I was never given the opportunity to sing at concerts or events until I was 11. However I was unable to sing as high as all of the other girls, so I was given the low melodies & never the lead voice, because I just “couldn’t sing high notes”. Until I started singing lessons I couldn’t hit a B within the stave (for those of you who don’t know what that it, almost every song in the world for women goes higher.) Until many years later & now I am a high Soprano. 

Every singer who walks into my studio or who sings online only needs to know one thing. You can sing anything you want or set your mind too, I am here to help you achieve those results & with your motivation & my skills we can reach any goal you have in mind. 

So if you are a professional singer who is preparing for an audition or a student who doesn’t understand what their teacher is asking them to do, or a hobby singer who just wants to have fun & learn something new. I have the tools to help you all achieve your goals & have fun doing so.

Students are supported through weekly warm-ups, sheet music libraries, video feedback & repertoire selection. 

Sing with confidence & join in the fun!
