My teaching philosophy

Good singing lessons should enable you to go away and sing any song, not just the ones you work on in lessons.

If you love singing enough to seek out lessons, you deserve to be believed in, treated with respect and encouraged, never demeaned.

A good teacher will make you feel valued, safe and comfortable enough to experiment with your voice in order to gain awareness of what your voice can actually do.

This philosophy is what I strive to achieve with every single one of my students.

Technique is a big focus in my lessons as is my desire to ensure lessons are fun and enjoyable, even when the going gets tough!

I have worked as a singing teacher for more than six years now, teaching students from ages 6 to 70 and everywhere in between, both in schools, and privately. I have had a student make it to the top 10 on X Factor NZ, as well as many more win leading roles in school and community productions. If you would like to know more about my experience and training, have a look at my resume.

I have recently finished performing in the ensemble of Christchurch’s production of Phantom of the Opera and am thoroughly looking forward to moving to Nelson!

Check out my students testimonials if you need more convincing, otherwise, don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions or comments. I look forward to hearing from you!
