I always strive to be the best I can be in whatever goals I am pursuing, this is no different in my quest for voice & teaching knowledge. My training began in Classical Voice before the fabulous Dr Irene Bartlett at the Queensland Conservatorium told me I needed to learn to sing every style of music. So I did. I worked on my Pop technique & expanded my knowledge of Speech Level Singing with Dave Stroud & Dean Kaelin.
I worked classically using Bel Canto techniques with Gina Saunders & Ann De Renais before working with Musical Theatre & Pop repertoire through the Esill Voice Model with Anne-Marie Speed & Charlotte Xerri. Having gained knowledge of many vocal methods & techniques I use all of my training to provide individual lessons suited to your voice & your needs. I am a Certified Estill Master Trainer
I come from New Zealand & moved to Munich in 2017 after 7 years living in Scotland & London. I love singing & I want to make sure that I inspire my students in every lesson that I teach.
Give me a call or email to discuss lesson options.
