Our Story

 

Starting from a humble home studio in Burwood in 2006, The Sydney Voice Studio was founded by our director - singer, music researcher and mum-of-three, Dr. Veronica Stewart. Thousands of students later, the studio has grown into a bespoke teaching, performance and creative space in Canada Bay. Our studio links teachers, students, clients and community to the music industry, secondary and tertiary institutions, and national/international learning opportunities.

Yet most of all, our studio is proud to teach the many benefits of singing to people from all walks of life.

Enjoy sound treated studios with three beautiful teaching rooms equipped for both in-studio and online teaching, providing an excellent environment for ​learning, experience and creative expression. 

No longer a home studio, yet small enough to certainly feel like home for many of the families and clients we work with.

Our Team of Teachers + Artists

 

We live and breathe music and enjoy sharing our passion with our students with a collective 30+ yrs of experience in singing and vocal pedagogy, songwriting, live performance, recording, musicianship, self-accompaniment, music research and the music industry. 

 

All of our teachers and studio staff are trained in child-safety for both online and in-studio teaching contexts and hold current NSW Government/Office of the Children's Guardian Working with Children checks.
