I was initially trained classically, and although some may say that is a good basis, it was unable to help me sing any contemporary style. My initial training had created a sound that only suited classical and opera singing and I felt that I did not know my own voice. I went to many singing teachers who told me that was just the way I sang and unfortunately would probably never successfully sing ‘pop’ or modern musical theatre, I was unconvinced! I started studying the voice, the physiology and audio physics in order to understand how my singing voice functioned, as well as studying with some world class contemporary teachers.
Eventually, I totally transformed my voice, and now understand and can sing all contemporary styles with a tone and range that is completely suited to the genre. I believe that the research and understanding that I have of the singing voice as well as my own personal struggle and journey has given me a great experience which I bring to my teaching. I understand what it feels like to be frustrated with the sound of your voice, to be unable to hit the high notes clearly and strongly and without strain, to have no confidence in your vocal performance, I’ve been there and been through it …… But, now I can help you fix it!!!!!!
