I have a current Police Check or equivalent
I have 13 years of private teaching experience as vocalist. I was also positioned as head vocal coach at the Australian Music Education Academy for 4 years and have previously taught with other educational institutions such as Lygon Music School and The Music Bus in addition to 7 years of group facilitation experience within community settings
I have 13 year experience as a Performing Artist within the music industry. I've recorded and released several singles, EP's, Albums & Film Clips and toured the festival circuit nationally and internationally with my original 9 piece funk/ soul band 'Kattimoni' and as a vocalist & dancer with multicultural samba reggae band, 'Sol Nation'. Some performance highlights include; International Island Music Festival (Langkawi, Malaysia), Baucau Peace Festival and Tour (East Timor), National Multicultural Festival, White Night Festival, Moomba Festival, Rainbow Serpent & Port Fairy Folk Festival. I have worked as a session vocalist for corporate events and was also featured as a Judge in 'The 100', an esteemed panel of music industry representatives from all over Australia on Channel 7's #1 TV Series ‘All Together Now' featuring Ronan Keating and Julia Zemiro.
I personally tailor each session to fully support you to explore your relationship to your voice and nurture YOUR unique potential in a safe, supportive, creative and playful space. I work across a diverse range of styles and genres and my unique methodology and teaching style explores singing from an inter-connected and holistic perspective, bringing alignment to the body (breath management, vocal technique), mind (theory, aural training) and the heart (emotional expression & embodiment).
As someone who has spent their life touring and performing on stages all around the world, most people don't believe me when I tell them I failed music in high school. I still remember my teacher telling me 'Music just isn't your thing, perhaps you should try art instead?' But it was never a lack of talent, passion or ability that stopped me, it was the stage fright and performance anxiety, the highly critical inner voice and the fear of judgment that had me freeze up. I was sooo shy about singing in public I would actually skip school on exam days just to avoid performing! Over the years I dedicated myself to working through a lot of these mental & emotional blocks and have gone on to develop my voice and enjoy a wonderful creative life and career in the music industry. I just love supporting people to transform their relationship with their voice, learn how to overcome their fears and cultivate confidence in their authentic voice.
