I love to teach singing, not because it's what I'm expected to do, but because I want to share my love.
I love singing so much and it has helped me to no end. It is powerful.
High school was easier because I had singing. I had to learn to be brave and face my fears from a young age, because of singing. I learnt about rejection and resilience, because of singing.
Singing allows us to voice what we feel, not just in words or pitches, but in timbre (The way out voice sounds) and physical expression or lack of.
Singing allows me to transport myself and others to a place which is unique to ourselves.
That skill and ability needs to be shared and utilised. You deserve the best voice to sing out what it is your heart asks for.
I'm not your average choir director.
I have a vision. I want to actually help choristers or choir participants improve their voices whilst they see me almost weekly. There are so many choirs out there that do not teach any singing technique what so ever.
I run 2 choirs at the moment. The East Coburg Neighbourhood House co-ordinator, Lee Palumbo, and I won a With One Voice Grant in June 2018. We rehearse and supper every Tuesday from 5:30 to 7:30 (75 minutes of singing) at the Coburg Court House right near the train station.
The focus is on COMMUNITY!! We want to bring the community together and help people make new friend whether they're for one rehearsal or a life time.
It's a really exciting venture.
My other choir is with the Manningham Arts Studio above the Doncaster Library.
It's on Thursdays from 10am to 12pm and we usually have a social coffee afterwards. Most of the ladies (Not that we don't allow men, the choir has just attracted lots of women) are retired and so it's the perfect time of day for a sing.
Have you always day dreamed about having a singing party? Maybe you always dress up as a rockstar to halloween parties or 70's parties.
Be a SUPER STAR for an hour with me and my Karaoke Booster.
I'm sure your karaoke skills will improve 100 fold, as long as you give it your best shot.
Together we can ACE a single song, and I'll give you some tips on how to make singing easier and more fun.
Best for groups of 4 - 10 in a large lounge room. Why not have a special event for your bookclub or other semi-regular meetup.
