Our Teachers

We're singers, songwriters, multi-instrumentalists, professional performers and music researchers. We love what we do - but most importantly, we love to share it with our community.

We're passionate about singing...

And love to share our craft with our community and beyond.

Our friendly teachers/coaches have a collective 30+ yrs of experience in singing and vocal pedagogy, songwriting, live performance, recording, musicianship, self-accompaniment, research and the music industry. 

 

We live and breathe music and enjoy sharing our love for singing with our students, to inspire the singers we work with and of course, develop some serious vocal and musical chops in the process!

All of our teachers are trained singers and musicians who hold relevant tertiary qualifications, industry affiliations and child safety checks.

Our teachers are additionally trained and child safety procedures as delivered and required by the NSW Office of The Children's Guardian, and pride ourselves in maintaining a safe and welcoming space for all of our students.

Vee, as she is known amongst peers, holds a Ph.D. in Music Research after conducting the largest study of Australian Singer-songwriters to date. Her thesis, titled 'Story, Song & Voice: Investigating the Musical Creativities of Australian Singer-Songwriters', explored the many interlacing areas of music, voice, creativity and socio-culture that singers and songwriters engage with. In short...hook her into a conversation about singing and music and you may never leave our studio!

Vee is a proud mum to three young creative minds, and is a strong advocate for the benefits of music education and singing for children and families. You'll sometimes spot her 'jam' with her own kids on our studio Facebook page: "It is one of the sweetest things a parent can do with their children - from singing lullabies to a newborn, to having a go at a few tunes while cooking dinner, Singing, as we know, builds bonds and closeness between people. And it's a ton of fun!".  

 

With a music and creative portfolio that spans over 20 years, Vee has performed with Grammy award winners, coached Aria award nominees, and has sung to millions in nationally, and internationally televised events, yet maintains that the best thing about singing is in the many wellbeing-related benefits it offers to anyone, from any walk of life.
